The coroner has released Whitney Houston’s cause of death. Are you surprised by the results?

Whitney Houston wasn’t clean and sober when she died tragically Feb. 11. However, drugs and alcohol aren’t the only things that killed the 48-year-old singer.

The L.A. County Coroner has released the cause of her death, citing “accidental drowning” as the reason she passed, and noting that heart disease and cocaine use were factors as well. That said, there were no traces of cocaine in the room where she died.

Whitney was found in the bathtub of her Beverly Hilton hotel room before she was expected to make an appearance at Clive Davis’ annual Grammy party. Her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was visiting Los Angeles with her at the time of her death.

Are you surprised by the results or is that what you expected?
