  • The world received sad news Sunday evening when the Houston family confirmed that Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, passed away after being in a coma for months.
  • She was the daughter of singer Bobby Brown and the iconic Whitney Houston, who also passed away in 2012 from an accidental drowning in a bathtub.
  • Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive and faced down in a bathtub late January. She was emitted into the hospital in a critical state and entered into a coma.
  • An autopsy is being performed to determine cause of death.


As many of you know, Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of famed entertainers Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, passed away on Sunday evening as a result of injuries she sustained from unknown causes back in late January. For many family members close to Bobbi Kristina, this is a crucial time to really find out what caused her death and why she was in a critical condition that left her in a coma for months.

Bobbi Kristina was found in a tub, face down and unresponsive in late January.

Some speculations reported she suffered from possible severe brain trauma due to lack of oxygen to her brain. However, these reports unconfirmed. Bobbi Kristina’s unresponsive state was similar to her mother’s situation when she was also found dead in a bathtub in 2012, according to the Associated Press from ABC News.

Bobbi Kristina’s exact cause of death will be hard to pinpoint because any drugs or substances that she may have took are no longer in her system, the AP reports. The medical examiner will have to work with sure doctors, who originally treated Bobbi Kristina, to decipher certain clues or red flags as to why she was face down in her bathtub.

Is this a murder case?

There is a chance that this isn’t foul play, but at this early stage, there’s no confirmation. Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who also lived in that same house where she was found unconscious, has not been charged with any crime. However, there was a media whirlwind in February when Gordon allegedly was not allowed to see her, but reports changed, saying he had visitation rights. According to a June article by the International Business Times, family members allegedly wanted Gordon to take a polygraph test in order to see her. Both families believe that he was somehow involved with Bobbi Kristina’s critical state because of evidence of marks left on her body when she was originally found.
