As soon as reports were released last week from the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office revealing Houston’s exact cause of death, a serious question presented itself: who removed cocaine from Whitney’s hotel room? The answer is now clear. Houston confidant Raffles van Exel admitted he wiped her room clean in an interview just four days after her death.
Speaking with The Telegraph, Exel said “someone had to do it.” He went on to tell the journalist, Colette Boegman, “the room was empty” when he was done. There is word yet if charges will be filed against Excel.
