Star singer Whitney Houston died from accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub, but the “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use” were contributing factors in her death, according to an initial autopsy report released by the Los Angeles County coroner. Houston, 48, was “found submerged in bathtub filled with water” and “no trauma or foul play is suspected,” the one-page release said. Her cocaine use appeared to have “in the time period just immediately prior to her collapse in the bathtub at the hotel,” Assistant Chief Coroner Craig Harvey told reporters. 60% of the singer’s arteries were discovered to have narrowed.
