Whitney Houston Found Unconscious Underwater

Pop icon Whitney Houston was reported dead on Saturday afternoon, to the great shock and devastation of her family, friends and fans.

Houston was found in her Beverly Hills hotel room by her bodyguard, and police have reported that the singer was unconscious in her bathtub when found.

“She was underwater and apparently unconscious,” the Beverly Hills Police Department said in a statement, adding that authorities “cannot speculate on what may have caused or contributed to her death.

Several prescription drugs were found in Houston’s hotel room, but Los Angeles County coroner’s officials said it’s too soon to say whether the medications played any role in the singer’s death. Authorities have said that they are trying to determine whether she drowned and that determining a cause of death could take weeks.
