Investigator Claims Whitney Houston Was Murdered

Ten months after her death stunned fans around the world, a tabloid report raises the outlandish prospect that Whitney Houston may have been murdered.

According to the National Enquirer, a private investigator named Paul Huebel claims the pop singer was killed by drug dealers after she racked up $1.5 million in debt. Huebel says he has surveillance video from the Beverly Hilton where Houston was staying when she died in February that supports his story.


Contrary to the coroner’s conclusion that her death was accidental, Huebel claims that Houston’s body shows classic “defense wounds” consistent with someone fighting for her life.

Huebel won’t say who hired him to look into Houston’s death. The coroner determined that the 48-year-old singer drowned in a bathtub as a result of chronic cocaine use and heart disease.
