L.A. Coroner Rules Out Foul Play In Houston Death

Whitney Houston
The Los Angeles coroner has ruled out foul play in the death of the U.S. pop star Whitney Houston.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said the autopsy on Houston had been completed, but a cause of death would only be announced once toxicology tests are finished.

"I'll just comment that she was found in the bathtub," Winter said. "I believe somebody removed her from the bathtub and the paramedics did CPR on her. There was no visible signs of trauma and foul play is not suspected at this time."

Meanwhile, entertainers have honored Houston at the Grammy music awards in Hollywood as well as the British film and television awards in London.
Houston was found dead at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on February 11.
Her popularity soared in the 1980s and 1990s with consecutive No. 1 hits, including the smash single "I Will Always Love You" from the soundtrack of the feature film "The Bodyguard," in which she starred.
Whitney Houston was 48.
