A statement from the Brown family last night revealed the tragic news the world had been waiting for, but their pain is not over yet.
Bobbi Kristina's untimely death at just 22 years old came after six months of hospital treatment, following the discovery of her unresponsive body in a bathtub at her home in Georgia on January 31 of this year. The Brown family's statement said that their beloved daughter and niece was now "at peace in the arms of God," but what remains is a difficult wait for the autopsy results, which may finally clear up what happened that tragic night.
A representative for the Fulham County Medical Examiner's Office said that the autopsy will not be straightforward one, as Bobbi's six months of hospital treatment may "complicate" the investigation.
"Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging," the rep told Associated Press. "However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death."
Bobbi was moved to hospice care over a month ago and it's believed her life support machine was turned off around that time too. A source close to the family said that the 22-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston had been reduced to "skin and bones" prior to being moved to hospice care.
Police previously confirmed that the circumstances surrounding Bobbi's death are being treated as a criminal investigation, due to a number of unexplained markings discovered on her body when she was found. Earlier this month, her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was served with a €9m civil law suit in relation to Bobbi Kristina.
Mr Gordon, who recently completed a stint in rehab, is accused of punching his girlfriend in the face, knocking out a front tooth and dragging her upstairs by her hair. It is also alleged that he "routinely" transferred funds "into an account controlled solely by him" without having her consent or authorisation.
