Whitney Houston passed away from an accidental drowning, and there was no foul play involved in her death, according to the now-closed case file.

The Beverly Hills Police Department has been investigating Whitney’s death since February 11, and officially closed the book on the case Wednesday.

The lack of foul play isn’t really news, as the BHPD was working under the assumption of Houston’s accidental death at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

Moreover, police never believed anyone took cocaine from her hotel room because they found the cocaine residue and powder inside Whitney’s room.

Cocaine was a contributing factor in her death, according to the L.A. County Coroner, who published the Whitney Houston autopsy results last week.

Hopefully, her passing serves as a cautionary tale for many, including her own daughter. That Bobbi Kristina Brown bong video is a little unsettling.
