Bobbi Kristina's cause of death is now known, according to the latest media reports, but no one is talking about it for one important reason:
The police are still building a case that could lead to a homicide prosecution, and while won't name names, it's clear who their target is ...
The Fulton County Medical Examiner just said it knows exactly what killed Whitney Houston's daughter, who passed away this summer.
Bobbi Kristina was found face down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Georgia home on January 31, and never regained consciousness.
According to TMZ, the M.E.'s office won't reveal it to the public because a judge ordered the findings sealed to protect the investigation.
The M.E. notes that the Fulton County D.A. and the Roswell P.D. have been alerted to its findings, and it's not hard to read between the lines.
Authorities don't want Bobbi Kristina's cause of death to interfere with their efforts to pin the crime on someone, as the information is critical.
In other words, a person or persons of interest could essentially be given a road map to help them avoid making incriminating statements.
The judge's order to seal the records from the public underscores that the criminal investigation is active, further bolstering this point.
Investigators have been focused on Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, almost from the beginning, and he hasn't helped his cause.
Gordon lawyered up right away, and aside from scattered, unverified reports here and there, has done little to explain his side of the story.
Whether Nick Gordon killed Bobbi Kristina (allegedly) on purpose or not is a key distinction, but doesn't necessarily mean he'll beat the rap.
Rumors have run rampant that Gordon drugged and drowned Brown; Nick is guaranteed to deny that, but the police aren't tipping their hand.
