Demands are mounting for an exhumation of Whitney Houston’s body and a second autopsy to be performed. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has received calls and emails from people claiming to be relatives of Whitney who think she was murdered and one of them claims to have a suspect in mind.
Whitney was buried before all the evidence surrounding her death was available – including the toxicology report. The GLOBE’s law enforcement expert, Paul Huebl, says that because Whitney was not cremated her body can be exhumed and an independent autopsy be performed.
Huebl asks the gruesome question: “did she drown accidentally, die of substance abuse and fall into the water, or was her head held under to end her life?”
Let’s not forget that during the Oprah interview Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and manager Patricia Houston suggested that foul play was involved in Whitney’s death.
In her televised interview with Oprah, Pat shocked everyone by saying: “Don’t know how she got in the tub – I just know they had to pull her out of the tub.”
The GLOBE Print Edition, March 26, 2012 reports: The law enforcement expert says about a second autopsy and exhumation: “This can be done in a day or two and then she could be quietly reburied.”
The coroner has said that there are no signs of foul play but an official cause of death will not be determined until toxicology results are back.
Leolah Brown, sister of Whitney’s ex, believes she was pushed under the water as she bathed before the Grammy party she was to attend that tragic night, according to a source. Leolah’s told cops she believes Whitney was taken by surprise and killed, says a family source.
For at least some people who were close to Whitney there remain unanswered questions and doubts to how the singer met her end. Perhaps these people will get some closure when the coroner releases his findings.
