Was the untimely passing of Whitney Houston caused by drug dealers?

After Whitney's tragic death last February, coroners revealed a month later that it was caused from drowning in a bathtub and the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use." But Paul Huebl, an investigator in the case, is now claiming that it wasn't a drug overdose, but drug dealers that killed her. Not only that, but he's claiming there is video evidence which proves this, according to the National Enquirer.

Media reports claim that Whitney owed $1.5 million to various drug dealers and enforcers were sent to collect the debt. She was reportedly alone in her suite at the Beverly Hills Hilton for 45 minutes, which is when Paul claims there is surveillance video of the killers sneaking into her room. He also disputes the coroners report that her death was accidental. “Whitney’s body shows classic defense wounds that would have occurred while she was battling for her life,” he said.

Paul was hired by an unnamed client who did not believe the results from the report of Whitney's official death. If there actually is video evidence of dealers walking into her hotel room, it would certainly be cause for re-examining how she died. However, there are two things working against this story. Firstly, it's in the National Enquirer. And secondly, It's hard to believe a dealer would let anyone, even a mega-celebrity, rack up $1.5 million in unpaid drugs.

Do you think drug dealers had anything to do with Whitney's death?
