Four days after Houston's death, Raffles van Exel admitted to Dutch newspaper The Telegraph of the post-mortem sweep, claiming, "the room had to be emptied" of illicit material and that "someone had to do it." Apparently he was one of three people with access to the room. He has not yet revealed the specifics of what he removed from the scene.
Van Exel refers to himself as a "highly respected entertainment consultant" and also had dubious ties to Michael Jackson.
