Exclusive Details About Whitney's Last Moments
February 14, 2012
The Insider's Kevin Frazier has obtained new details about how Whitney Houston was found in her hotel room on Saturday.
A source close to the situation tells Kevin that the pop icon was found slumped over the side of the bathtub with her head face down submerged in the water, but with her legs still outside of the bathtub. Multiple reports until now have indicated that Whitney was found underwater when she was discovered on Saturday.
The source added that people who spent time with Whitney in the hours preceding her death said it did not appear the superstar was under the influence.
Attempts to revive the 48-year-old singer were not successful at the Beverly Hills Hilton, where she was found hours before she was to appear at producer Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy Awards party.
An autopsy was conducted on Sunday, but no cause of death has been determined pending the results of toxicology reports that are expected to take several weeks. Authorities have said there were no indications of foul play and no obvious signs of trauma when they examined Houston's body.
A private funeral service is scheduled for Saturday in the Newark, New Jersey church where Whitney first showcased her musical talent as a child.
