Raffles van Exel confessed to cleaning up Whitney Houston's room on the night of her death, an admittance that comes right after the coroner's office said cocaine played a part in Whitney's death. Could Van Exel have removed vital evidence from the Beverly Hilton?
Before you answer that, let us back track!
When the photo of Whitney Houston's dead body lying in its casket surfaced, there was an uproar from the singer's family. Cissy Houston wanted blood and accused the funeral home of leaking the picture, while calling for a full-fledged investigation.
Then as the funeral home denied responsiblity, it surfaced that the leak came from within the family circle: Raffles van Exel was purported to be the culprit.
If you're wondering just who he is, Van Exel is a notorious celebrity insider with a very questionable past. He was one of the guys who urged OJ Simpson to write the never published If I Did It, a hypothetical book describing how he would have killed his ex-wife Nicole Simpson.
So after the photo leaker was revealed, the Houston family fell back, prompting the funeral home to say:
"They didn’t do anything about it, they’re protecting him. How come they haven’t gotten him out of their circle?”
Did the Houston family fall back on the casket issue because he cleaned up a messy situation?
While the family has asked for privacy, there are a lot of questions still being raised.
Do you think Raffles cleaned up the room and removed something he shouldn't have?
