Reports have surfaced that Singer Vesta Williams has passed away. There are no specific details  at this time, but it’s being reported that the singer’s body was found in a Los Angeles hotel room.  The cause of death is unknown. She was 53.

Williams, a Coshocton, Ohio native, was originally credited by her full name, but she has also been billed as Vesta since the 1990s.


TMZ reports

Multiple bottles of prescription pills were found in the El Segundo, CA hotel room where R&B singer Vesta Williams died … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We’re told “several bottles” were discovered — some empty. Law enforcement sources tell us officials first received a call related to Vesta’s death around 6PM Thursday night.  Sources tell us the death is being treated as either an accident or suicide, but not a homicide.

The coroner won’t know if drugs played a part in her death until the toxicology reports are in — and that could take 6 weeks.
