Whitney Houston, pop music icon, was pronounced dead in her hotel room on Saturday afternoon.

Houston, 48, was staying at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. Police received a call about Houston from hotel security at 3:43 p.m. on Saturday. Paramedics were onsite for a Grammy party, but were unable to resuscitate her, according to the Associated Press.

The autopsy has been completed, according to Fox News, but the results have been placed on hold, pending toxicology reports.

The Beverly Hills Police Department have confirmed earlier police comments that "no foul play is suspected."

Houston's death came on the evening of one of the biggest nights for the music community, the Grammy Awards. "It's her favorite night of the year," Clive Davis, longtime mentor of Houston, told the Associated Press.
