Despite rumors saying the family of Whitney Houston had already been contacted by the coroner to discuss the cause of death, the LA County Coroner's office is flat out denying it!!
According to assistant chief coroner Ed Winter, he's never broached the issue with her family. He did, however, say it's possible the police could have had such discussions.
No official word will be given to the media until the toxicology reports are printed. Which means we could waiting for a while…
But according to those rumors, there wasn't enough water found in Whitney's lungs for the cause of death to be drowning! So instead, her death is believed to have been cause by a lethal drug/alcohol cocktail!!
