Investigation Launched Into Whitney Houston's Prescriptions
Some are calling for a criminal investigation into the death of Whitney Houston as speculation surfaces of the possibility the pop diva was prescribed too many drugs. INSIDE EDITION reports.
It's explosive commentary from Nancy Grace, raising the suggestion there was foul play—even murder—in the death of Whitney Houston.
"Who was around her? Who—if anyone—gave her drugs, following alcohol and drugs? And who let her slip, or pushed her underneath that water?" asked Grace, "Where is she getting all these drugs? Who are all the doctors giving her these drugs? And will someone be held accountable?"
Her remarks on CNN are sparking heated reaction.
On The View Joy Behar said, "The implication that it was murder, is like, out there."
"She's just wrong. It's wrong about this, it's too soon," said Whoopi Goldberg.
And just listen to what KISS frontman Gene Simmons had to say on Fox.
"When you start to use drugs and you kill yourself that way, it's not a tragedy, it's a choice. It's pathetic. It's cowardly," said Simmons.
Authorities in Los Angeles are subpoenaing the records of the doctors and pharmacies linked to the drugs found in Houston's hotel room—Xanax, Ativan and Valium.
And some are asking, could Whitney Houston have had her own Dr. Conrad Murray? Murray was convicted just 3 months ago of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
"There's no reason why somebody should be on Valium, and Xanax, and Ativan at the same time," said Cyril Wecht, a nationally prominent pathologist.
INSIDE EDITION's Megan Alexander asked, "Would any reputable doctor prescribe all those drugs to one person?"
"My opinion? No. You just don't do that. All doctors are aware of this!" said Wecht.
Houston's death is being compared to other tragic stars who died from overdosing on prescription medication.
Anna Nicole Smith also died from combining prescription pills. So did actress Brittany Murphy, who was just 32.
We caught up with Tyler Perry at the premiere of his new movie Good Deeds. He did a good deed in real life by providing the private plane that flew Whitney Houston's body home to New Jersey.
"I have an audience that is very, very loyal that expects me to do the right thing. To have so many people who have been there with me and been there for me, I owe it to them, so that's why I feel like it's very important," said Perry.
Rebecca Romijn says she's paying tribute to Whitney Houston by introducing her young daughters to her music.
"I've been a life-long fan and I've just spent the last 48-hours playing her music for my daughters and showing them her pictures and they keep going, 'Can we see her sing? Can we go see her sing?' They're only three, they just don't understand. Everytime they ask I just burst into tears," said Romijn.
