Hollywood Con Raffles van Exel Admits He Tampered with Evidence in Whitney Houston’s Hotel Room

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has confirmed that there was cocaine in Whitney Houston’s system when she died. But there is a question to why were there drugs in the singer’s system but strangely enough there were no traces of drugs in her hotel room.

Now, what we are about to mention is what we felt in our heart of heart’s in the case in Whitney Houston’s death. The person that was hanging out with the singer days before and on the day of her death, has come forward. The infamous Raffles van Exel, known as a Hollywood Con and now widely known to have taken the casket photos of Whitney Houston, has admitted that he wiped the Beverly Hilton Hotel room clean of any evidence that would lead to suspicion of illegal activity, the Celebrity Buzz reported. Also, news editors estimate that van Exel may have been paid a six figure sum for the casket photos.

The Dutch newspaper The Telegraph was translated and it stated a man named Raffles van Exel admitted to them only four days after Houston’s death that he cleaned her hotel room. He never admitted exactly what he removed from the scene.

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

Chief Coroner Craig Harvey said when he announced the findings of Houston’s cocaine use appeared to have occurred “in the time period just immediately prior to her collapse in the bathtub at the hotel,” he reported.

“(Houston’s case) is still an open investigation for us… I can’t disclose any details about the investigation,” BHPD Lt. Mark Rosen told People on March 23. Source

While the Los Angeles County police are investigating the circumstances surrounding Houston’s death, it is clear that if van Exel removed items from the room, he could be charged with evidence tampering, which is a felony.
