Whitney Houston coroner receives murder investigation demands

The calls have come from people claiming to be relatives of the late star

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office have apparently received calls from people claiming to be relatives of Whitney Houston and demanding a murder investigation is opened in regards to her death.

TMZ have reported that the office has received both calls and emails from people claiming to be related to Whitney Houston and her ex-husband Bobby Brown.

One caller apparently offered up their theory on who committed the alleged ‘murder’ but could not give any proof. TMZ writes that the Coroner’s Office has not been able to verify if the callers are who they say they are.

Despite these claims, Whitney Houston‘s death is likely to be ruled as accidental, according to sources close to the investigation. E! News recently reported that officials looking into the circumstances surrounding Houston’s death have not uncovered any evidence to suggest that she took her own life or that another party was involved.

A source claimed that “nothing suspicious” had been found in relation to the singer’s death. They added: “She has no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself.” Although police are unable to comment on the case until they receive the toxicology report, the source also claimed that the case was close to completion.

Houston passed away on February 11 at the age of 48, after she was discovered underwater and unconscious in a bath at a hotel in Beverly Hills. Though it has been widely reported that she died as a result of an overdose of Xanax and other prescription drugs mixed with alcohol, police had previously said it could take up to eight weeks for her cause of death to be formally confirmed.
