Whitney Houston’s FBI Records Released to the Public
An FBI investigation requested by Whitney Houston, has been released a year after her untimely death.
On Monday, the FBI released records showing the agency investigated an alleged extortion attempt of the singer back in 1992, the investigation proved inconclusive. Later it was determined that no crime occurred.
The agents also investigated an alleged threat to Houston by an obsessive fan. Apparently the unnamed fan sent Houston more than 79 letters. Letters were also sent to her family and friends.
The fan shares with Houston in one letter his longing to meet with her, he writes, “I might hurt someone with some crazy idea and not realize how stupid an idea it was until after it was done.” The investigating agents attempted to discover the intent of his threat and the identity of who he said he might harm. They also wanted to determine whether he was capable of carrying out the threat.
In one of the letters, the writer states that, “Miss Whitney, you are a beautiful lady and a beautiful person. I really and truly am in love with you. Please believe in life and in love and trust in yourself, and in your friends and trust in God.” He goes on to write, “Miss Whitney, you are a special person with a wonderful gift. Please keep singing and helping people to be happy, but most of all, Miss Whitney, please keep smiling.”
He also threatened to go public with personal information he had about the singer. And he claims to have had several offers for the information that are “in the six figure range.”
He then says that should she decide to be cooperative he would, “expect a similar offer from you.”
The report, covering 128 pages, does not show any new personal information on the star, and the information is combined to produce one document. The file was released after Fox News and other media requested the information according to the Freedom of Information Act.
Houston was found drowned in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards. She had accidentally drowned due to heavy cocaine use and heart disease according to a toxicology report.
