Whitney Cause of Death Weeks Away

The day after Whitney Houston was at the center of an outpouring of grief and love at the Grammys, the Los Angeles coroner’s office announced that a cause of death for the singer is weeks away, and that he has performed "routine" toxicology tests. Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter also confirmed that Houston was found in the bathtub at her hotel room. Gossip site TMZ claims that while many pill bottles were found in her room, few actual pills were discovered. Meanwhile, sales of Houston’s music soared online over the weekend, with 42 of her songs in the top 200 on iTunes. On Amazon, her albums claimed half of the top 20 spots.
