Investigators seek Whitney Houston’s medical history

Washington: Investigators probing Whitney Houston’s death are looking into her medical records.

The singer, 48, was found unresponsive in the bathroom of her suite at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Saturday, and declared dead at 3:55 pm.

LA Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter said that “prescription medication was recovered from the scene”.

“We are trying to locate some of her doctors to get all possible medical records,” People magazine quoted him as saying.

Winter declined to comment on what drugs were found in Houston’s room, but he does say investigating the records “is normal procedure for us”.

Asked if the case appears to be similar to the Dr Conrad Murray investigation, he said, “It doesn’t appear so”.
