Whitney Houston’s untimely death on February 11 is expected to be officially ruled an accident, a source with knowledge of the ongoing investigation confirms exclusively to E! News.
Ms. Houston’s family has always believed her death was an accident and not a suicide or murder.
While the actual cause of death was temporarily listed as "deferred" on Houston's death certificate pending the result of toxicology tests, "nothing suspicious" has been found to connect any physicians or other people of interest to Houston's case and the inquiry is nearing completion, the source says. The source for E was not revealed.
Plus, "she had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself."
The L.A. County Department of Coroner will not confirm, citing the ongoing investigation.
The autopsy toxicology screen could be in the Beverly Hills Police Department's hands by next week and, depending on the status of other elements of their investigation, the case could be closed very soon afterward.
