Today, the official cause of death of Bobbi Kristina Brown was released: drowning associated with drug intoxication.

Now, just hours after the announcement, Brown’s father, Bobby Brown, has released an official statement regarding the death of his daughter.

"First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born," Brown told Us Weekly in a statement.

"Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl. For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter’s autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing to me. Please pray for my family."

The singer’s lawyer, Christopher Brown, included a statement as well:

"Yesterday we were informed that two news affiliates were granted access to the autopsy of Bobbi Kristina Brown. While this action is unsettling, we will continue in our efforts in the civil lawsuit and the criminal investigation. 

"Bobby Brown has had to be strong and mourn his loved ones in a fashion that is foreign to most people. So public, so raw, with apparently no end in sight. Hopefully public indictments and prosecution will lead to private healing and closure for Bobby Brown and his family."

Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious and face down in a bathtub in January of last year in a home she shared with boyfriend Nick Gordon.

She was placed in a medically-induced coma and died six months later in July.

Gordon is now facing a civil suit filed by her family.

He has been accused of killing Bobbi Kristina by injecting her with poison following a "violent altercation" that "left her battered and bruised, with a tooth knocked out.”

Bobbi Kristina is buried next to her mother, the late singer Whitney Houston, in New Jersey.
