Roswell Police Department spokeswoman Lisa Holland said investigators interviewed people who were at the home at the time. While they don't know exactly what happened, early reports indicated no sign of a struggle, Holland said.

Houston died at age 48 in 2012 after being found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel room.
