Bobbi Kristina Brown was the only child of Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown, but she lost her life in July 2015, in a way very similar to the death of her mother. Ultimately, Brown’s official cause of death was reported as Lobar pneumonia induced by immersion and drug intoxication. According to CBS News, Brown’s face was “immersed in water and she was intoxicated with a mix of marijuana, alcohol, morphine and other drugs – both conditions that caused pneumonia that led to her death.” This was reported by the medical examiner in an official statement. Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office in Atlanta and it was reported that marijuana and alcohol were absolutely involved in the death, along with medications used to treat anxiety. There was also “a cocaine-related substance” called benzoylecgonine involved, along with morphine, but “it could not be determined from toxicology tests whether the morphine resulted from heroin use.” The medical examiner also released the following statement when it came to the question of whether Brown was murdered:
Death was clearly not due to natural causes, but the medical examiner has not been able to determine whether death was due to intentional or accidental causes, and has therefore classified the manner of death as Undetermined.
Brown was found unresponsive in the bathtub at her Atlanta townhouse on January 31, 2015. She died months later in hospice care on July 26, 2015.
