    Whitney Houston’s body is back in her hometown of Newark, N.J. It was flown from Los Angeles on a plane owned by Tyler Perry, and driven from the airport in a golden hearse to the Whigham funeral home in Newark. A crowd of fans gathered outside the home. It was announced Tuesday morning that a private, invitation-only funeral will be held Saturday at Houston’s childhood church. Whether a public viewing will take place is still unknown. The singer’s body was found submerged in her bathtub at the Beverly Hills hotel on Saturday. The Los Angeles coroner says prescription drugs were found in Houston’s room but her cause of death is still unknown. A toxicology report and official investigation may take weeks to complete.
