LOS ANGELES (CBS) — One day after Whitney Houston’s body was flown to New Jersey, fans and friends here in Los Angeles are remembering both her career and heartbreaking final days.

Houston’s body was returned to her home state on Monday night aboard Tyler Perry’s private jet, which departed from Van Nuys Airport.

A funeral service for the pop icon will be held Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church, where she grew up.

Meanwhile, Beverly Hills police are continuing their investigation into Houston’s death. She was found unconscious and unresponsive in the bathroom of her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday afternoon.

There are reports that Houston was pulled from the tub by her aunt, Mary Jones, but the results of an autopsy completed by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office are sealed.

Officials have confirmed, however, that a small amount of prescription drugs were found in Houston’s room.

Toxicology reports are due within the next seven weeks.
