PI claims to have proof that Whitney Houston was murdered

A private investigator is claiming that the late songstress Whitney Houston, who died in February, reportedly of accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub, was actually murdered — maybe.

MailOnline reports that Paul Huebl says he has turned over evidence to the FBI that shows the 48-year-old singer was likely killed over a drug debt. If true, this version of events would contradict the medical examiner’s finding that the singer drowned in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel after taking a “cocktail” of cocaine, marijuana, and several legal drugs.

The story, published initially by The National Enquirer, holds that the troubled star was targeted by “high-powered drug dealers who sent thugs to collect a huge debt she owed for drugs.” According to some reports, the amount owed was $1.5 million.

Huebl admits he can’t say with certainty that Houston was killed — only that he has evidence pointing in that direction. He says he obtained surveillance video that shows two unknown men who repeatedly visited the hotel during Houston’s stay and integrated themselves into her entourage. He further asserts that these men may have slipped into Houston’s hotel room and killed her.

Confronted with the report of the Los Angeles County Coroner that ruled the death accidental, Huebl contends:

Whitney’s body shows classic defense wounds that would have occurred while she was battling for her life.

He added that he has evidence that Houston’s hotel room was ransacked, providing further proof that a violent struggle took place. “I think that if you put all these things together,” he told MailOnline, “they do kind of spell homicide, with a big red capital ‘H’.”

The FBI has not responded to MailOnline’s request for a reaction.
