Whitney Houson's Autopsy Reflects Other Celebrity Deaths
As Whitney Houston's family heads to Mexico in the wake of her final autopsy report being released, some are asking if the report revealed too much personal information. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
Whitney Houston's devastated family is heading to Mexico for an Easter weekend vacation after the release of that shocking final coroner's report.
Whitney's sister-in-law, Patricia Houston, the executor of her estate, and Patricia's husband, Gary are accompanying Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina and her purported fiancé Nick Gordon.
Now, some are questioning why the final Los Angeles coroner's report contains so much intimate information about Whitney, right down to breast implants, that she wore a full wig, and all her upper teeth were implants. All was information she clearly wanted to keep private.
INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney spoke to famed pathologist Cyril Wecht.
McInerney asked, "Why is it necessy for us to hear all of this private information?"
"You do not, you cannot, you must not, as a foresic pathologist working in governmental office, medical examiner's or coroner's office, edit as you go along or as you prepare your final report," replied Wecht.
This isn't the first time the intimate secrets of a famous celebrity have been exposed for all the world to see.
Whitney's full body diagram, detailed the condition of her body with abrasions on the shoulders, arms and knees, contusions on the upper arm and hand, all apparently due to her having fallen into a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
We also learned that Whitney had emphysema and artherosclerotic heart disease—a 60 percent blockage of the arteries of the heart.
Comparing it to this full body diagram of Michael Jackson, who died in 2009, his autopsy revealed Jackson had an enlarged prostate, the skin condition Vitiligo, a colon polyp, and even an extra rib.
Whitney's report notes she was nude, wearing a "bracelet made up of a band of numerous small white stones and attached was a cross."
Whitney's final report is so detailed, it even mentions she had acute gastritis and colitis, and lists the size of her breast implants, 230 CC, a full size B.
Is all this too much information?
HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell told INSIDE EDITION, "If you're a celebrity, you have no secrets, especially in death, especially if your death is controversial, especially if the whole world is going to be reading your toxicology report."
