Dumbest Line in Autopsy Stories

This is from an article about Whitney Houston's autopsy results, but I've seen similar statements in many other stories:
No cocaine was retrieved from the Beverly Hills hotel room where Whitney Houston died even though toxicology tests found the drug in her system, coroner's officials said.
Who cares if they didn't find cocaine in her room? Gee, I wonder where all the coke was. It was up her freaking nose, obviously!* I mean, if the toxicology tests show that someone had drugs in his/her system, why do they always make a point of saying whether there was any more lying around nearby?

* Okay, she could have consumed the drug through some other method, but you get the point.
