Whitney Houston Death Updates: Cocaine Found In Room, Cissy Houston Speaks
White, powdery remnants were recovered at the scene of Whitney's death. TMZ is reporting:
As for the quantity of cocaine that was found, official documents show one of the items police recovered was "white, powdery remnants." Sources tell us the powder was tested and it's cocaine.
We're told Beverly Hills detectives are NOT investigating rumors that someone removed cocaine from the room, because they're convinced it wasn't removed.
Sources directly involved in the investigation told TMZ early on … no illegal drugs were recovered from the room. We have circled back with these sources who now tell us they were unaware at the time that cocaine was present.
Cops are not investigating anyone who may have taken cocaine from the room because they are in possession of it and they are in the final stages of the investigation of Whitney's death.
