Whitney Houston’s death is expected to be officially ruled an accident, according to a source.This is in line with what her family has believed since she was found dead in her bathtub at the Beverly Hills Hilton on February 11.

The family held that her death was not a result of deliberate action taken by Houston - or anyone else, according to the insider.

While the actual cause of death was temporarily listed as “deferred” on Houston’s death certificate pending the result of toxicology tests, “nothing suspicious” has been found to connect any physicians or other people of interest to Houston’s case and the inquiry is nearing completion.

“She had no marks on her body whatsoever to indicate a struggle, and she was the furthest thing from trying to kill herself,” E! Online quoted the source as saying.

The source added that the autopsy toxicology screen could be in the Beverly Hills Police Department’s hands by next week and, depending on the status of other elements of their investigation, the case could be closed very soon afterward.

Houston reportedly had prescriptions for antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications, and a handful of pill bottles were reportedly found in her hotel room.
