But authorities won’t release findings until criminal investigation is completed’
- Authorities in Georgia now know what caused the death of Bobbi Kristina
- But a judge has ordered examiner’s conclusion must remained sealed
- The daughter of Whitney Houston died in July after being in a coma for six months
Authorities in Georgia now know what caused the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown but they’re keeping the information to themselves.
A judge has ordered that the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s conclusion about how the 22-year-old died must remained sealed, according to TMZ.
That’s because a criminal investigation into her death is still ongoing and law enforcement doesn’t want any information made public that could hinder their inquiries.
Investigation: A medical examiner in Georgia has determined the cause of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death but the findings have been sealed by a judge pending completion of a criminal investigation
The daughter of Whitney Houston died in July after being in a coma for six months.
She was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in Georgia in January.
She was buried beside her mother in New Jersey, three years after the singer’s eerily similar death, aged 48, in a bathtub in the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Partners: Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon lived together in the Georgia townhome that she inherited from her mother Whitney Houston.
The circumstances surrounding what happened that fateful night have been the subject of an investigation by law enforcement in Fulton County and her partner Nick Gordon has been the focus of inquiries.
Gordon, 25, was served with a ‘wrongful death’ civil suit in August filed by the conservator of Bobbi Kristina’s estate.
The complaint alleged that Gordon fed Bobbi Kristina a ‘toxic cocktail’ then placed her face-down in a tub of cold water on the last night she was seen conscious.
Bobbi Kristina’s estate first filed suit in June accusing him of assault, battery, causing emotional distress and stealing Bobbi Kristina’s money. On August 7, the complaint was amended to include an accusation of ‘wrongful death.’

While the estate is pointing the finger at Gordon, he has not been criminally charged.
The 25-year-old has denied he was responsible for what happened to Bobbi Kristina and said he tried to resuscitate her when she was unresponsive but was unsuccessful.
He’s also denied claims he physically abused the young woman and fraudulently benefited from her wealth by pretending they were married.
Gordon’s attorneys described the allegations as ‘slanderous and meritless’, according to USA Today.
Grieving father: Bobby Brown, seen here in LA last month, has been left devastated by his daughter’s death and said the family did all it could to save her after she was found unconscious and unresponsive in January
Appearing on the talk show The Real earlier this month, Bobby Brown, 46, said the family did everything they could for his daughter in the six months leading up to her death.
‘We prayed in hope for six months, you know, for something better to happen, but when God calls you, He calls you,’ Brown said during the interview.
‘I’m pretty sure her mother had a part with like … ‘c’mon let’s get her up here’ … in the best way possible,’ he added. ‘She was not comfortable by herself, I guess, and she just called my daughter with her.’
Together: Bobbi Kristina’s death was eerily similar to her mom’s. Whitney was found unresponsive in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11, 2012. Her daughter was buried next to her in a New Jersey cemetery
