According to the Daily Mail UK, aide to the stars, Raffles van Exel may have given himself up as the culprit in an interview with The Dutch Telegraph newspaper days after Whitney's death. Following is what the Daily Mail has reported:
An aide to Whitney Houston has confessed to clearing her room before police arrived following her death.
Self-described entertainment consultant Raffles Van Exel admitted he carried out the action to Dutch Telegraph newspaper, saying 'Someone had to do it.'
However he stopped short of saying exactly what he removed from the suite, an important omission following claims cocaine had been removed from the scene.
Celebuzz revealed he made the confession in an interview with the respected Netherlands newspaper just four days following her death, where he also said: 'The room had to be emptied.'
On his Twitter page van Exel touts himself as a European actor, music consultant and producer, and that he is a 'highly respected entertainment consultant having guided some of the world greatest.'

She continued: 'Even the most minimal inquiry with anyone actually in contact with Whitney would reveal that Leolah Brown had been out of contact with Whitney for more than a year and was nowhere near the scene on the day of her death.
Leolah told Dr. Drew Pinksy that she witnessed Ray, real name William Ray Norwood Junior, leaving the singer's Beverly Hilton hotel room 'hiding his head on the day she died.
'Why is he hiding his face? He's always trying to show his face when he's with Whitney. Why now? Why you trying to hide, Ray J?' she asked.

Brown then accused Ray J of being a 'runner boy' for the music icon because he 'knows somebody that sells drugs' and bought and supplied them to her.
