Whitney Houston reportedly drown in up to a foot of scalding hot bath water when she died. According to the tabloids, this may mean that there is foul play. Can't they leave well enough alone?
"How could [The water be 93.5Â°F five hours after Whitney died]? It still leaves foul play possible. They shouldn't close the case," insisted Dr. Drew Pinsky according to the UK's Sun. Let the conspiracy theories begin, boys and girls... as if they haven't already. Look, there are plenty of people who are happy to argue what caused Whitney to die. Was it heart disease? Did she drown? Did she overdose on meds or cocaine? Was it foul play? One thing is for sure, for the water temp in the tub to still be that high, something seems strange.
Fans and family may never know the real cause of Whitney Houston's death, but to suggest that she somehow died due to foul play because of the water temperature is a bit of a stretch. Whitney was in a hotel room. Unlike your home hot water heater, the hot water tends not to "run out," so if the water was still running when people found Houston's body, it makes sense that the water temperature was still high. Was she boiled to death as the tabloids infer? Most likely not.
