Whitney Houston Autopsy: Cuts, Scratches, Burns Found on Body
48-year-old Queen of Pop's body was in bad condition.
While many of the injuries on the singer's body were sustained when she drowned in a bath full of hot water on February 11, many of the scars, burns, cuts and abrasions found on her body were there for years. Houston was known to have suffered from chronic heart disease and had liver problems.
The British newspaper, The Sun, is reporting that at the time of her death, Whitney was missing 11 front teeth and had a hole in her nose. The singer wore false teeth, had a wig and was missing the majority of her eyebrows. The singer also had extensive cosmetic surgery, including breast implants, which broke down her stomach, chest and thighs.
The toxicology report showed that Whitney's death was triggered by cocaine use. It also revealed a drug cocktail poisoning her system with traces of marijuana, the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril and the over-the-counter antihistamine Benadryl.
