2012: Grammy-winning singer and actress Whitney Houston, who from the 1980s to the late 1990s was one of the world's best-selling artists, is found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, face down in 13 inches of water in the bathtub. She was 48. An autopsy later showed the troubled "I Will Always Love You" singer died of accidental drowning, though cocaine use and heart disease were also contributing factors.
