Whitney Houston Passed Away, Houston’s body was found inside a bathtub in a room on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California, OnTheRedCarpet.com has learned.
Investigators for the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office worked on the scene to find the cause of her death as celebrities poured into the building for a pre-Grammy gala that Houston was supposed to attend. Producer Clive Davis, her mentor, dedicated the event to her. The Coroner’s Office workers transferred Houston’s body out of the building early on Sunday.
Beverly Hills police Lt. Mark Rosen said authorities received a 911 call from hotel security at 3:43 p.m. There were “no obvious signs of foul play and no obvious signs of a cause of death,” he said.
“Upon arrival, first responders discovered Whitney Houston unresponsive,” police said in a statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.com. “They initiated CPR, but were unable to revive her. At approximately 3:55 p.m. Whitney Houston, age 48 was pronounced dead at the scene.”
“Whitney Houston was positively identified at the scene by members of her entourage which included friends, co-workers and family,” the statement added.”Ms. Houston’s daughter and mother were notified of her death.”
Police would not say if there were any drugs or alcohol were found in the room. The pop, soul and R&B singer had struggled with substance abuse for years. She relapsed and returned to rehab in May.
Houston was set to perform on Saturday at the Beverly Hilton at a pre-Grammy gala for producer Clive Davis, who discovered her. The event took place as scheduled. A crime lab bus was seen parked outside as guests gathered inside the building. Davis and scheduled performer R&B singer Alicia Keys embraced in front of the vehicle.
“It’s semi-festive and .. surreal,” television personality Larry King, 78, told CNN. “I’ve never been at a party like this. Her remains are still in this hotel. They haven’t removed them yet. The police are here. Crowds are outside. The room is packed.”
