LOS ANGELES (CBS) —Cocaine was found in Whitney Houston’s system when she died, according to the final report from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office.

The report, which was released Thursday, determined Houston’s final cause of death to be from drowning, the effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine intake. The report said that her manner of death was an accident.

A toxicology report found that cocaine and metabolites were identified in Houston’s system and contributed to her death. Other drugs, including marijuana, Xanax, Flexeril and Benadryl were also identified, but did not contribute to Houston’s death, according to the report.

No trauma or foul play was suspected, the report concludes.

Houston, 48, was found dead in the bathtub of her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton on Feb. 12, the day before the Grammys.
