On what would have been Bobbi Kristina Brown’s 23rd birthday, the cause of her death has been revealed.
On Friday, March 4, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office in Atlanta, released autopsy results that show that the only child of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston died from a combination of alcohol, marijuana, morphine; “a cocaine-related substance” called benzoylecgonine, anti-anxiety medication and immersion in water, CBS News reports.
“The underlying cause of death is the condition which starts the downhill course of events leading to death and in this case is the immersion associated with drug intoxication,” the medical examiner’s office said in the statement. “Death was clearly not due to natural causes, but the medical examiner has not been able to determine whether death was due to intentional or accidental causes, and has therefore classified the manner of death as Undetermined.”
Bobbi’s boyfriend Nick Gordon has been called a “person of interest” in the investigation into the death by Georgia authorities. His lawyer, Randy Kessler, believes the results vindicate his client.
“He’s always maintained his innocence. I personally hope this puts to rest all the negativity surrounding him,” Kessler said.
The autopsy results were unsealed by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry Newkirk after a motion was filed by media organizations.
Bobby Brown released a statement expressing his anger at the media.
“First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born. Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl. For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter’s autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing to me. Please pray for my family,” Brown said.
In August 2015 a wrongful death lawsuit was filed against Gordon by Bobbi Kristina’s estate administrator, Bedelia Hargrove, alleging that he had physically abused his girlfriend and stole nearly $11,000 from her bank accounts during her hospitalization.
Bobbi was found by Gordon and a friend in a bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia home on January 31, 2015. At the time she unresponsive, face down and submerged in water. She was rushed to the hospital, but never regained consciousness after falling into a coma. She died in hospice care on July 26.
**UPDATE** March 5
The Atlanta Journal Constitution has obtained more information from Bobbi Kristina’s autopsy.
The 22-year old had scars all over her body and several missing teeth. See the information below.
These results could explain why the police had not yet released this information to the public, if they are still investigating the possibility of a crime that may have been committed leading up to Bobbi’s death.
