The question of how Whitney Houston died has been answered. Accidental drowning combined with effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use have been revealed as the official causes of the pop icon's death on Feb. 11 at the rather young age of 48. There was cocaine in her system when she was found submerged in water in the bathtub in her fourth-floor room at the Beverly Hilton, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner. And cocaine wasn't all the coroner found. Traces of marijuana, the antianxiety drug Xanax, the muscle relaxer Flexeril and the antihistamine Benadryl also turned up in her system, but they did not contribute to her death.
