Pop superstar Whitney Houston died Saturday in Beverly Hills California at the age of 48.
The singer and actress was found in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel at 3:55 p.m. Paramedics spent 20 minutes attempting to revive her to no avail, authorities said.
The cause of Houston's death is yet to be determined, but authorities indicated no signs of foul play. "There was no visible signs of trauma," said Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner's office.
"While Houston had battled drug addiction for years, she was attempting a comeback," The New York Times.
