READ: Whitney Houston Final Autopsy Report

Whitney Houston drowned face down in a tub of "extremely hot water" about 12 inches deep, the final autopsy report on the singers death said. The Los Angeles County coroner, in it's preliminary report last month, ruled that the superstar's February 11 death was an accidental drowning with the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" as contributing factors. According to the coroner's report (which you can read in its entreat, below), investigators found a white, crystalline substance and spoon with residue in the Beverly Hills hotel room. On a bathroom counter were "a small spoon with a white, crystal-like substance in it and a rolled-up piece of white paper, along with other miscellaneous items," it said. In a nearby drawer were "remnants of a white powdery substance and a portable mirror on a base and on the bottom of that base were more remnants of a white, powdery substance." The report does not specifically identify the substances as cocaine, but the drug was found in toxicology tests in Whitney's heart and extremities. Investigators also collected a "plethora of medications bottles" but officials have said the amounts of drugs did not seem unusually large. The Beverly Hills Police say their investigation into the singer's death is still open. The report said the late singer, at 5'6" and 151 pounds was "muscular" an "well nourished," had breast implants and had a hole in her nasal septum, which was the result of her long-term cocaine use.

This is the complete autopsy report:
