If Whitney Houston Was Murdered Over Huge Drug Debt, Her Story Becomes Even Sadder

whitney houstonCan't say I saw this coming -- a new report has emerged that claims Whitney Houston was murdered. A private investigator on the case says that the famed singer didn't die of an overdose, but was killed by thugs looking to collect on a drug debt. P.I. Paul Huebl asserts that Whitney's body had classic self-defense wounds and suggests that she was offed by men sent by the high-powered drug world. There might even be videotape of the killers entering her Beverly Hills Hotel room.

Whitney died in February and the autopsy report in March said she drowned after having a heart attack in the bathroom. Cocaine use was listed as a contributing factor. So how much did Whitney allegedly owe her drug dealers?

Huebl claims she was indebted $1.5 million. Ouch. That's a lot of cash, and a lot of cocaine, too. No wonder the dealers wanted their money. It's not like $1.5 million can be repaid with signed copies of "I Wanna Dance With Somebody".

When it comes to Whitney, I feel like anything's possible. The story of her drowning in a tub after an overdose, excuse me, a heart attack, sounded about right, and this latest tale of her being murdered after running up a drug tab she couldn't or refused to pay also, well, sounds about right.

There may be a lot of mysteries surrounding Ms. Houston (not the least of which was what she saw in Bobby Brown), but when it comes to her substance abuse and a troubled private life, those sound like clear-cut certainties to me.

There's no doubt in my mind that drugs killed her -- it's just a matter of figuring out how. Did her heart stop because cocaine clogged her arteries? Or did it stop because someone killed her over the money she owed for said cocaine?

Huebl's taking his story to the FBI, so maybe we'll eventually find out the truth.

What do you think of this claim that Whitney Houston was murdered?

This is nothing more than slanderous, ridiculous, speculative dribble. Whitney Houston was a talented woman who loved the Lord, yet she struggled with addiction, something millions of people around the world do. And many hide it. If the coroner says she died of a heart attack, caused by the damage done to her heart by the drugs, which caused her to drown - accept it. Don't drag her and her family by extension through the mud for the sake of getting headlines.

Its written so technically its libel not slander, which in order to be libel it must be proven false. So as of right now is freedom of speech whether you agree with it our not.

O Brother. Ditto kelticmom.

I suppose the aunt was paid off to leave the room, and is in on the murder plot too??

I just love how someone just has to throw some 'claim' against the wall, for others to wipe off and DISprove. This is the new news/blog standard, right??

It's probably one more stupid conspiracy theory. That said, I refuse to coddle addicts. Sickness, my behind. Cancer is sickness. Pneumonia is sickness. Addiction is foolishness and selfishness.

I agree with tuffymama. People CHOOSE to do drugs. It's selfish and they deserve the consequences.

You're on a roll with idiotic blogs today. Although I agree with the above posters, "No wonder the dealers wanted their money. It's not like $1.5 million can be repaid with signed copies of "I Wanna Dance With Somebody". - that was a trashy thing to say. I wonder how the writers on this site would like it if strangers blogged about your deceased family members in the same way.

Agree with Miss Catalina, that was a callous thing to say. It sounds like Whitney's work "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" means nothing more to you, L. Mannering, than a skid row pawn store ticket. Maybe you should get a headstart writing your New Year's resolutions.

Well this is another blog that won't get another look. I agree with kelticmom and MissCatalina. This post is nothing more than thinly veiled libelous and cruel garbage. I'll add that it says more about the author as a lowlife than it does about Whitney Houston's shortcomings.

Whitney was not alone in her hotel room.  She was in the bathroom and a number of people were in her suite.  Also, why kill her when she owed them money insuring they would never receive their money?

God has his number reguardless if ms Houston was addicted to drugs or a angel in church. She lived her life and she live it as she so desired .....so please stay out the lady business and let her rest in peace.........Did you know heaven is a beautiful place to be as said in the Bible.........
