Whitney's relatives allege she was murdered07/03/2012 - 08:36:59
Whitney Houston’s ‘relatives’ have reportedly bombarded the coroner with claims she was murdered.
The 48-year-old singer’s February 11 death looked set to be officially ruled an ‘accident’ after a post-mortem revealed no evidence of foul play.
But a source says the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has received numerous phone calls and emails from people claiming to be friends or relatives of Whitney or her ex-husband Bobby Brown – all alleging she was murdered.
The insider told TMZ.com that one person even claims to have information that could prove the murder theory.
Bobby’s sister Leolah Brown has already gone on the record with her belief that Whitney’s death was ‘no accident’.
She told Access Hollywood: “It's very important to know that she did not just pass away like that. No. And if it's the last thing that I do, I'm going to find out what truly happened to my sister."
The Coroner's Office – which has not verified the identity of the callers – is now awaiting the results of toxicology reports to determine if prescription drugs played a role.
However, a source told E! News that nothing has been found to link her death to any of her associates, staff or doctors.
The insider said: “She had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself.”
A spokesman for the Coroner's Office confirms the investigation is ongoing but refused to comment further.
