Whitney Houston Death Certificate Released, Uninformative
The official death certificate for Whitney Houston has been filed with Los Angeles County and made available to the public – but it reveals very little about the singer that we didn’t already know.
The document runs through the basics – name, date of birth, occupation (“entertainer”), marital status, next of kin (Bobbi Kristina) and place of death – and also confirms that she’ll be buried at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey.
But it lists “deferred” pending further investigation as the cause of Whitney’s death.
It’s strongly believed, of course, that Houston died because she mixed prescription pills with alcohol, but no specific drugs have been confirmed. Autopsy results may not be back for weeks.
