Bobbi Kristina's Cause of Death to Remain Sealed

Judge orders report to stay private pending criminal investigation.

Published September 28, 2015

After weeks of speculation, Bobbi Kristina Brown's cause of death has been determined, but you won't hear about it anytime soon. The Fulton County Medical Examiner, who conducted the autopsy on the music scion, has been ordered to keep the results sealed.

"We're not revealing any information, unfortunately," the investigations unit at the Fulton County Medical Examiner office tells People. 

The medical examiner's office can't release information about the autopsy to the public due to a court order, the representative shares. "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," a statement on the website says. "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 Fulton County District Attorney and Roswell Police Department have been informed of the Medical Examiner's findings." 

The autopsy results are likely being kept under wraps due to an ongoing criminal investigation centered around Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon. The only daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown was found unconcious in her bathtub on January 31, and died in hospice care surrounded by her loving family members on July 26, at the age of 22. Following her death, Brown's case was labeled a murder investigation, though no charges have been filed against Gordon. He does, however, face a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit brought on by Brown's conservator Bedelia Hargrove.
