Although the L.A. County Coroner’s office found no signs of trauma or foul play in its investigation of Whitney Houston’s death (toxicology tests are still pending), it seems that a fair number of skeptics are still suspicious of the circumstances surrounding her passing.

The late singer’s official cause of death is still pending on a full toxicology report, and while police have already ruled out the possibility of foul play, many aren’t so sure.

The coroner’s office has reportedly fielded multiple phone calls and emails from people — some claiming to be relatives of Houston or her ex-husband, Bobby Brown — who believe that Houston was murdered, according to TMZ. One caller even claimed to have information regarding a specific relative who may have committed the murder.

TMZ adds that the coroner declined to comment on these reports, as the investigation is still ongoing.
