Bobbi Kristina Brown: Official Cause of Death Confirmed

by at .

Today, Bobbi Kristina Brown would have turned 23.


Instead, the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office in Atlanta, GA released Brown's official cause of death.

On January 31st, 2015, Brown was found face-down in a bathtub in the home she shared with boyfriend Nick Gordon.

Marijuana, alcohol and prescription sedatives were involved in Brown's death, according to the medical examiner's office.

"The underlying cause of death is the condition which starts the downhill course of events leading to death and in this case is the immersion associated with drug intoxication," the official statement read, according to ABC News.

After being found unresponsive that day, Brown was put in a medically induced coma, and died nearly six months later on July 26th, 2015. 

She is buried next to her mother, Whitney Houston in New Jersey.

Media outlets filed a request to have the autopsy results sealed, which a judge granted on March 3rd, 2016.

Gordon has been accused of murdering Brown by her family members in a civil suit, who claim he injected the then-22-year-old with "poison."

Attorneys for both the Brown and Houston families claimed that Brown “died following a particularly violent altercation with [Gordon] that left her battered and bruised, with a tooth knocked out.”

Brown's fatal circumstances were eerily similar to her mother's, who passed away in February 2012 when authorities found her face-down in a bathtub inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA
