Authorities say they know how Bobbi Kristina Brown died — but they’re not telling the public.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of death of the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown, who died at age 22 in July, six months after being found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home.

The medical examiner’s office said that the results of their examination were sealed under order of the Fulton County Superior Court.

“The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death based on information available as of September 25, 2015. However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has been received Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public,” the medical examiner’s office said in a statement.

“The Fulton County District Attorney and Roswell Police Department have been informed of the Medical Examiner’s findings,” the statement concluded.

Brown, who was found in her bathtub on July 31, fought for her life for six months before finally succumbing on Juy 26. According to her grandmother Cissy Houston, Brown suffered from global irreversible brain damage, meaning that the entire brain showed signs of inadequate oxygenation.

Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is being sued by her court appointed conservator, who claims that Gordon physically abused her, siphoned money from her bank account and gave her a “toxic cocktail” and nearly drowned her. Gordon’s attorney has firmly denied the allegations.
