Autopsy Report: No Foul Play Suspected In Houston Death

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — On the day of Sunday’s Grammy Awards, the music industry and fans are mourning the loss of Whitney Houston.

Houston’s body arrived at the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office in Boyle Heights 11 hours after she was declared dead at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The pop superstar was pronounced dead 3:55 p.m. Saturday in her fourth-floor room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Kirk Hawkins, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, said paramedics performed CPR for 20 minutes prior to that after they were called by a member of Houston’s entourage.

Houston was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her fourth floor hotel room.

Houston’s family says they talked to her earlier Saturday and didn’t believe anything was unusual.

But during a rehearsal last week, some witnesses said she was sweating profusely while others said she was doing handstands by the pool at the hotel.

Coroner’s officials say they can’t talk discuss what they saw in her room.

“It didn’t appear that there was foul play and that’s all I can say about it,” said Los Angeles County Asst. Chief Coroner Ed Winter. Houston has been treated at least twice for her addictions.
