Nancy Grace speculated on Monday that someone might have "pushed" Whitney Houston underwater, leading to her death.

The HLN host was speaking to CNN's Brooke Baldwin about the late music icon, who died suddenly on Saturday. Police said on Monday that she had been found underwater in the bathtub of the hotel room where she was found.

Grace appeared before the police's press conference. But she seemed to sense that some kind of foul play was afoot. Speaking about the prescription drugs found in Houston's hotel room, she wondered "who if anyone put it in her system or gave it to her?" Then, she went further.

"I'd like to know who was around her, who, if anyone gave her drugs...and who let her slip, or pushed her, underneath that water?" she said. "Apparently, no signs of force or trauma to the body. Who let Whitney Houston go under her water?"

"Might it have been one person, might it have been multiple people, all excellent questions," Baldwin said. "Again, we don't know the cause of her death."

Grace also said that she had learned that Houston was getting three different prescriptions for the same drug from three different doctors. "They were medicating her out the yin-yang," she said.

Minutes later, CNN's Don Lemon appeared on air. Without mentioning Grace's name, he stressed that any talk about Houston's prescriptions should not be taken as gospel.

"That is not CNN's reporting," he said. "We don't know that to be true."
