Bobbi Kristina Brown, Daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, Dead At Age 22
UPDATE: According to People, the Fulton County Medical Examiner will be investigating the cause of her “non-natural death.”
UPDATE 2: The Fulton County Medical Examiner has issued the following statement regarding the autopsy:
“The initial portion of the autopsy has been completed. The autopsy does not show an obvious underlying cause of death and no significant injuries were noted. No previously unknown medical conditions that could have contributed to death were identified. Additional laboratory testing will be performed. Subpoenas have been issued to obtain needed documentary information. We do not plan to complete the death certificate or determine a cause and manner of death until all test results are completed and all investigative, medical, and other documentary records are received and thoroughly reviewed. We anticipate that these processes will take several weeks. See our previous press release for further details.”
“She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months,” the Brown family said in a statement given to ET.
Her death comes nearly six months after first being found unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31. According to the initial report of the incident, she was found by her husband and friend and reportedly “not breathing.”
She was then moved to North Fulton Hospital, where she was put on a ventilator and later placed into a medically induced coma.
In March, she was moved to a rehabilitation center. Her grandmother, Cissy Houston, would later reveal in a statement in April that Bobbi suffered “global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive.”
By the end of June, Bobbi was moved into hospice care at Peachtree Christian Hospice after the family reportedly consulted with a brain specialist in Chicago.
“Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s condition has continued to deteriorate. As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God’s hands now,” the family said in a statement at the time.
Bobbi’s death comes three years after her mother, Whitney Houston, was found dead in a bathtub. The coroner’s report concluded that Houston died due to “drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.”
