Authorities are now reporting Whitney Houston appears to have died from taking a ‘cocktail’ of prescription drugs and alcohol.

Police and investigators say other factors may be involved, but initial toxicology results indicate the troubled singer probably died from the mixture.  An official cause of death has not been released, and the city of Beverly Hills has put a freeze on the case due to the ongoing investigation.  Police reportedly found several prescriptions in her room, including anti-anxiety medication, after her death.  Houston, in her last few public appearances, appeared to be, according to reports,  highly intoxicated and acting erratically, including a pre-Grammy award party she attended Thursday.  Houston appeared to perhaps, however, be on the road to a comeback as she just wrapped up making a movie called “Sparkle” (a re-make of a 1976 Motown themed film) and reports indicated she was being considered for a judges position for the upcoming X-Factor fall season.
