Whitney Houston Cocaine: Raffles Van Exel Admits To Removing Evidence From Singer's Hotel Room

After the L.A. County Coroner's Office confirmed that cocaine was involved in Whitney Houston's death, many were left wondering why, if the illegal substance was found in the legend's system, there were no traces of the drug in her hotel room.

A source has since come forward, claiming that he wiped the Beverly Hilton Hotel room clean of any evidence that would lead to suspicion of illegal activity, Celebuzz reports.

According to a translation of Dutch newspaper The Telegraph, a man named Raffles van Exel came forward four days after Houston's death, admitting that he cleaned Houston's hotel room -- although he has not revealed what exactly he removed from the scene.

"The room had to be emptied," Van Exel, who calls himself a "highly respected entertainment consultant," told The Telegraph.

Houston's bodyguard found the singer unresponsive in her hotel bathtub on Feb. 11. Since her passing, the headlines have focused on daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who is rumored to be carrying on a romantic relationship with unofficially adopted brother, Nick Gordon.

Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown has also been at the center of much media scrutiny, most recently he was arrested for an alleged DUI in Los Angeles on Monday.
