Whitney's death may have been a tragic accident, says US media
thinkSPAIN , Monday, February 13, 2012

A COMBINATION of tranquillisers and alcohol may have caused Whitney Houston to fall asleep in the bath and drown, according to various media sources in the USA.
An autopsy is not due to be carried out until tomorrow, but preliminary inquiries revealed around a dozen bottles of various pills in her hotel room, including the strong tranquilliser Xanax.
Houston was said to have been a regular consumer of Xanax to control her anxiety, although no illegal substances were found.
She was found at 15.30hrs local time on Saturday (00.30hrs Sunday in Spain) by her hairdresser, with her head underwater and her legs out of the bath, as though she had fallen asleep and slid down.
The previous night she was said to have been at a party in the hotel all night long and drunk large quantities of alcohol.
Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, was admitted to the Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on two occasions on Sunday, and was said to be 'hysterical, exhausted and inconsolable'.
The second time around, she was taken to hospital on a stretcher, but medics have confirmed the teen is out of danger.
Her father, Whitney's ex-husband Bobby Brown, is said to be 'distraught' by the news.
Brown and Houston remained close friends after their turbulent marriage ended in 2007, and had always been determined that their daughter would be brought up by both of them together.
Whitney Houston was at the Beverley Hilton hotel in the Beverley Hills district of Los Angeles for the annual gala which takes place the night before the Grammy awards.
The party was organised by Clive Davis, who initially discovered Whitney in the 1980s.
When the star did not appear over an hour after going to her room to take a bath, her team began to worry and her hairdresser went in search of her.
Paramedics attempted to revive her, but half an hour after Whitney was found, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
