LOS ANGELES – Whitney Houston’s body was devastated by scars, cuts and burns when she died, autopsy details revealed.
Years of drug and alcohol abuse left the “Bodyguard” star with heart and liver damage, a hole in his nose and eleven missing front teeth.
She also had a needle stick in an arm and was high on a nine drug cocktail when she died in a Los Angeles hotel bathroom on February 11, 2012.
Evidence from police and medical teams showed strips of skin burned off Houston’s back after she got into the boiling water. It also resulted in “skin slipping” on her legs.
Sources said the temperature could have been as high as 150 ° F when she got into the tub.
Six hours after she died, the water was still 91 ° F and medical sources said she may have been so high that she didn’t realize how hot her bath was.
Traces of cocaine, cannabis, the anxiety pill Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril, the allergy drug Benadryl and the pain reliever ibuprofen were found in her body.
The 48-year-old has also been marred by decades of cosmetic surgeries, alcohol-fueled fights, and falls.
She had spots on her stomach, chest, and left thigh that were believed to have been cosmetic surgery. A scar on her left forearm could also have been made by herself.
Houston’s lifestyle had also weakened her heart so badly that one of her coronary arteries had narrowed by 60 percent.
The official cause of death was accidental drowning, with heart disease and cocaine use as contributing factors.
