Bobbi Kristina Brown’s autopsy results to remain private

The results of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter's autopsy have been sealed in court

The public will not be made aware of the official cause of death of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, who died in July.

Brown died following almost six months in hospital, and the initial autopsy findings (immediately following her death) did not report any immediate apparent cause. She was found unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31 of this year.

Fulton County medical examiner has now issued the following statement to its website:


“The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death based on information available as of September 25, 2015. However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has been received Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public. The Fulton County District Attorney and Roswell Police Department have been informed of the Medical Examiner’s findings.”


Bobbi Kristina was buried next to her mother Whitney Houston in late July, while the family have since sued her boyfriend over her death. The lawsuit accused Nick Gordon of giving Bobbi Kristina Brown “a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put[ting] her face down in a tub of cold water,” and seeks ten million dollars in damages.

Bobby Brown released an emotional statement following Bobbi Kristina’s death, saying:

“Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl.”
