The complete Whitney Houston autopsy is in, and it reveals a number of harrowing details regarding the singer’s death on February 11.

The document states that a “spoon with a white crystal-like substance on it” was found in the hotel room in which Whitney died, along with a “white powdery substance” later tested and determined to be cocaine.

Houston’s body was found face down in the bathtub – in approximately 13 inches of water, the report adds -with “bloody purge coming from her nose.” Moreover, a “perforation of posterior nasal septum” made it clear that the singer had a history of drug use.

There were no signs of foul play, officials included, while also writing up a detailed account of Houston’s surroundings. It reads as follows:

“Located on the south portion of the counter was a small spoon with a white crystal-like substance in it and a rolled up piece of white paper, along with other miscellaneous items.”

Located in the top drawer, in the north side of the counter were remnants of a white powdery substance, and a portable mirror on a base.
