The world will be mourning for a while of the death of OUR American Princess, Whitney Houston. The latest reports confirm that Whitney Houston did not drown in the bathtub where her body was found. There simply was not enough water in her lungs. The coroner has identified a mixture of presciption drugs and alcohol in her system. We won’t know for sure what killed Houston for 6-8 weeks when the toxicology report is completed.
NBC New York reported that the family has been given the okay to have her body flown back to the East Coast. Tyler Perry has offered his private jet for the transportation of her body tonight. A police escort will travel with Houston’s body to the Whigham Funeral Home, which is handling the arrangements, according to sources working with the family.
A wake is planned for Thursday, and the funeral will be Friday at the Prudential Center, according to a source close to the arena.
