Bobbi Kristina Brown Cause of Death Revealed

Daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown died on July 26, 2015

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s cause of death has been revealed months after her death, TheWrap has learned.

The daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown died of Lobar pneumonia, which was the result of brain damage due to oxygen loss from water immersion and “mixed drug intoxication,” per the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s report.

The report states that Bobbi Kristina had marijuana, alcohol, benzoylecgonine (a cocaine-related substance), benzodiazepines (medications used to treat anxiety), and morphine in her system when she was found face down in a bathtub in her Georgia home on January 31, 2015.

The report goes on to state that at this time it is unclear if Bobbi Kristina’s death was intentional or accidental, so it is currently being classified as “undetermined.”

The autopsy records had previously been sealed, but a judge ordered them unsealed on Thursday following requests by the media.

Brown remained in a coma from the time she was found until her death on July 26. Before she died, her father Bobby Brown, Pat Houston, Pat’s brother Ray Watson and her sister-in-law Donna Houston, Gary Houston, conservator Bedelia C. Hargrove and other family members joined together in prayer at the Atlanta, Georgia, hospice where she had been moved. They then sang hymns together following the 22-year-old’s death.

A preliminary autopsy did not identify any obvious underlying cause of death. It also did not reveal any “significant injuries” or previously unknown medical conditions that could have contributed to her death, according to a statement from the Fulton County, Georgia, Medical Examiner’s Office.

In a tragic coincidence, Whitney Houston was also found submerged and unresponsive in a bathtub on Feb. 11, 2012. She was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. Houston had multiple drugs in her system at the time of her death.
