The news was released by Lieutenant Mark Rosen after Houston's autopsy report had been fully reviewed and the case closed.

Heart disease and cocaine use were deemed factors in the death, and criminal activity was completely ruled out.

Houston died in a bathtub at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11, the day before the Grammy Awards. She was 48-years-old. Her final film, "Sparkle," will be released later this year.

TMZ obtained a copy of the 911 phone call made from the hotel alerting police of the discovery of Houston's body in the bathtub.
