Whitney Houston, who ruled as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, died Saturday. She was 48.

The Beverly Hills Police Department say Houston was found dead Saturday afternoon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The cause of death has not been reported. Her body remained in the hotel and Beverly Hills detectives were investigating.
