The room Whitney Houston died in can’t be booked by guests. TMZ has confirmed that the fourth floor room Whitney stayed in has had its room number – 434 – taken down with hotel staff members. Sources tell the site that the number was taken down “after scores of prospective hotel guests called to request the room.” Sigh. Thankfully, there are no immediate plans to make the room available to your creepy cousins guests again.
Meanwhile, a Dutch newspaper is claiming that Raffles van Exel, a man known to be around the late pop icon, has admitted to cleaning out Houston’s hotel room before investigators appeared. He is quoted saying, “Someone had to do it. The room was empty.”
I’ve watched enough of Scooby Doo and The Mystery Machine to know that someone’s about to get investigated one way or the other.
