No cause of death has been reported yet for Whitney Houston so let's try to guess before it is, as this remains a mystery for now

here's what's known, according to news accounts: the body was found in a bathtub, no evidence of drug use, meaning no pill bottles or drug residue or paraphernalia at the scene, no evidence of foul play, meaning no visible marks on the body such as stab wounds, gunshot wounds, bruising

i'm going with heart attack...not necessarily from drug overdose tonite or last nite, but years of coke abuse and whatever else caught up with her on this nite...if she was doing coke there'd be residue and/or paraphernalia likely...if it was a suicide, which happens frequently in a tub when one cuts one's wrists, there would be wounds on the wrists and lots of blood and a blade or knife around...none of that reported

what is your guess? the online sportsbooks that take bets on this sort of thing have already posted odds: drug overdose 3-1, heart attack 4-1, suicide 6-1, murder 10-1, accidental drowning 30-1, poisoning 50-1

Why would books post a line on something so easily leaked? I mean a coroner has friends and other people that work in the office. Not hard to call a few friends or family members and place a few bets and make some $. Kinda sick they would post a line on it or that people could potentially profit off of it.

some books take action on WWE wrestling, and award shows, so this is fair game too I guess, and probably not as much inside info money on this as is on other things

It sounds like she passed out in the bathtub and drowned herself.

Statistically black people don't OD from street drugs. Street drugs were designed to flood the poorer neighborhoods to tear apart the families and communities dealing with the problem and increase local crime rate. So if your typical user dies prematurely the drug problem kind of corrects itself. The drugs that your local ghetto person gets their hands on are not that powerful and have stepped on so many times. The majority of your OD victims on street drugs are white people from the suburbs because they can afford the better grade of stuff and can afford to consume a lot more of it.

For those of you that will say yeah what about Len Bias? Well Len Bias somehow got his hands on some pure uncut shit that never should have been out on the street.

You couldn't name your black musicians or actors on one hand that have OD'd from street drugs. What Jimi Hendrix? Some would say he was poisoned. Or Ol Dirty Bastard? He swallowed his stash out of paranoia and the baggy burst in his stomach. It wasn't like he was trying to get high. Michael Jackson had to be given heavy doses of anesthesia to die.

Your white entertainers ODing off of street drugs the list just goes on and on. Two members of Alice In Chains, The lead singer of Blind Melon, Anna Nicole Smith, River Phoenix, The little surfer kid from Point Break, Brad Renfro, Andy Gibb, etc, etc, etc, ....

It isn't a contest of who is the more durable race it is just a state of fact.

I'm pretty sure it was drugs, so I'll take the 3-1. Not too many celebs die alone in a hotel room at 48 who weren't doing drugs. And we ARE talking about Whitney Houston. I have my doubts it was coke or crack. Probably a pharmaceutical coctail of some type.

That's what I was thinking. Like the incense thing that almost killed Demi Moore.

And you have no stats to verify your claim. Don't try to sound smart.
