The L.A County Coroner’s Office have confirmed that they have received phone calls and emails from people claiming to be relatives of the star who believe she was murdered.
According to TMZ the Coroner has said: “There was no sign of foul play or trauma,” but are awaiting to report on the official cause of death until toxicology results are available.
Pat, who was also manager of the ‘I Will Always Love You Star’ also revealed that Whitney had been desperately trying to get hold of her in the hours before her death.
She explained: “I was going to her room she had been asking for me she had called my phone twice and I was going to see her.”
“I headed down the hallway I heard screaming.”
Pat went on to describe the crushing moment that paramedics stopped in their efforts to revive the 48 year-old and she realised the singer was lost.
She tearfully said: “I couldn’t leave her and I said don’t touch me please and I saw them cover her up and I knew that that was it. I knew that was it. “Just looking at her and watching that I still could not believe it I could not believe it.”
Whitney died on the 11th of February. Her only daughter Bobbi Kristina also took part in the interview and revealed she was changing her surname from Brown to Houston to carry on her mother's legacy.
