Whitney Houston's body flown to New Jersey

Help

Whitney Houston's body has been flown from Van Nuys Airport in the Los Angeles area east to New Jersey, where a funeral will be held at the end of the week.

What killed the 48-year-old singer may not be known for up to eight weeks, as officials wait for toxicology tests.

Born in Newark, Whitney Houston began her singing career as a child at the city's New Hope Baptist Church. Her cousin, singer Dionne Warwick, also sang in its choir.
