The investigation into the sudden and untimely death of Whitney Houston is nearing its end, as investigators complete the logistical part of their inquiry into the circumstances surrounding her passing.
According to CNN, investigators have contacted all physicians and pharmacies associated with the late singer, and so far, they have uncovered nothing criminal in nature.
Authorities said, however, that the review of additional medical information that will be used in the final ruling on the cause of Ms. Houston’s death is still going on. The estimated completion date of the toxicology tests, on the other hand, is “on or around March 23rd.”
In addition to physicians and pharmacies, investigators also got in touch with Whitney Houston’s relatives. They are said to be trying to speak with her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, as well, although it was unsure as to whether the 18-year-old will consent to an interview. She had been questioned briefly by Beverly Hills police on the day of her mother’s death, but she was understandably too upset at the time to offer any helpful information.
Houston passed away on February 11, in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. During that time the Los Angeles Coroner’s office said that her body had no visible signs of trauma, and that they were not suspecting foul play. They also downplayed speculation that the singer had overdosed, with Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter saying that “not many prescription bottles” were found in her hotel room.
