Whitney Houston autopsy: Preliminary results possibly out Wednesday

Speaking to reporters today, an L.A. coroner official said preliminary results of Whitney Houston's autopsy may be available on Wednesday. Officials indicated earlier that the full report, including toxicology tests, could take weeks. The coroner official also indicated that speculation on medication found on the scene did not come from the corner's office. Prescription pill bottles were found in her room, however. The coroner's office also earlier reported that Houston was found in a bathtub.

“I had a conversation with the family at the hotel and at no time did I discuss prescription meds or the drowning issue. I don’t know if detectives discussed that with the family. But no, we have not released any info like that," said Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter.
