Investigators will question Whitney Houston’s doctors to determine who gave her the sedatives that may have played a role in her untimely death.

“We will try to obtain medical records from her doctors,” said Ed Winter, assistant chief of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. “There were some prescription bottles that were not identified in terms of what they were.”

Winter told reporters that cops did not find a large number of pill bottles in the fourth-floor luxury suite at the Beverly Hilton where she died.

Winter said there were a couple of older pill bottles in Houston’s hotel room and one that had been filled recently.

According to reports, Whitney Houston was seen visiting 2 different Beverly Hills doctors within a 5-day period before she died – one on Feb. 2 and the other on Feb. 7.

Some of the meds in her room were reportedly benzodiazepines, including Xanax and Valium.

Toxicology tests are being conducted to determine exactly what she took, and how much.

Whitney’s good friend, singer Chaka Khan, had strong words on CNN for the entourage that didn’t protect Houston – and may have enabled her.

“Whoever flew her out to perform at that party should have provided someone to be there,” Khan said. “To keep the dangerous people away.”

She said the “machine around us, this so-called music industry, is such a demonic thing. It sacrifices people’s lives and their essences at the drop of a dime.”

One report said at least some of Houston’s pills came from the Mickey Fine pharmacy in Beverly Hills, where Michael Jackson allegedly shopped before his untimely death.

“You can bet they’re checking every single person who prescribed her anything — when and where and in what quantities — and whether each knew there was more than one doctor,” said forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht.

A similar investigation after Michael Jackson’s death uncovered he was doctor shopping — leading to the manslaughter conviction of Dr. Conrad Murray.

Whitney Houston, who appeared physically fit and looked terrific arriving at parties earlier last week, died Saturday at just 48 as she prepped for a pre-Grammy party.

There have been no reports of illegal drugs found in her room.

Wecht said 40% of the 300 cases he worked on last year were deaths from prescription pills, often combined with alcohol. “It’s not an exaggeration to say we are dealing with a major epidemic,” he said. “Doctors are prescribing like they’re sugar-coated gumdrops.”
