Bobbi Kristina Autopsy Is Necessary, Medical Examiner Says
Six months after being found facedown, unresponsive in a bathtub full of water, Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s only child together died on Sunday evening in a hospice center in Duluth, Georgia. Bobbi was just 22.
On January 31, Brown was rushed to an Atlanta hospital after being found inside her Roswell, GA townhouse. Krissi was immediately placed in a medically induced coma where she remained for several months. Brown, who has been unresponsive since the January incident, was taken to a hospice center in late June and was taken off life sustaining medications.
According to the Fulton County Medical Examiners Office an autopsy is “necessary” to further evaluate possible causes of death or contributing factors.
“The time which has elapsed between the initial event on January 31st and her resulting death will complicate reconstruction of the events surrounding her initial unresponsiveness,” the examiners office said in a statement posted on their website. “Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging. However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death.”
Details surrounding the incident have not been confirmed, but according to Bobbi’s conservator, the aspiring singer’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon might have something to do with it.
In a lawsuit filed in June by Bedelia Hargrove, the documents state that Bobbi confided in a friend and set up a time on January 31, 2015 to explain that Gordon “was not the man she thought he was.” Unfortunately, that same day, the 22-year-old was found unconscious in her bathtub.
“Today I filed a lawsuit on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown,” Hargrove said in a statement. “I filed this lawsuit to pursue justice on behalf of Bobbi Kristina Brown. No human being, male or female, should endure what Bobbi Kristina endured.Pat Houston and Bobby Brown have done all they can to take care of Bobbi Kristina since this terrible tragedy occurred. I have worked closely with both of them and we all want the very best for Bobbi Kristina. This lawsuit represents our collective efforts to get justice for Bobbi Kristina.We pray that justice will be done for her and that it will be swift.”
