A week before Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face-down in a bathtub and hospitalized, a neighbor in her gated townhouse community reported a domestic dispute at her address. The 911 call made on January 23 to the police was released February 10, according to the Associated Press.
The caller identified himself as a security guard at the community and told a dispatcher that one of Brown’s neighbors reported a fight at Brown’s address, and that people were “hitting each other and swinging” outside Bobbi’s townhome. The guard failed to give any specifics regarding how many people were fighting or their identities. Although the Associated Press requested a copy of the police report and 911 recording, the materials were not yet provided.
Christopher Brown (no known relation to Bobby or Bobbi Kristina), Bobby Brown’s Boston-based attorney, released a statement indicating that some media reports about Bobbi’s condition or about the family’s plans regarding her were false, and stated the following.
This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence.
Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant confirmed in an email sent to CNN that there is an ongoing criminal investigation.
Daphne Barak, a friend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, said that police have questioned her about bruises on the young woman’s chest after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub January 31. Barak indicated that Nick Gordon, Brown’s boyfriend, told her that the bruises resulted from him performing CPR on her, as noted by CNN.
According to a source with knowledge of the investigation, police are conducting an investigation focusing on everyone who was in the house the night before Bobbi Kristina was found and on those who had contact with Gordon.
“Immediately, from the beginning, they asked him about injuries to the chest,” Barak told HLN’s Nancy Grace, adding that Brown is “very tiny.”
Daphne, who has been in close contact with the couple for over a year, said that she believes that they were very much in love and were “everything to each other.” She stated that she was praying for Bobbi.
On February 11, 2012, just three years ago today, Whitney Houston, Bobbi’s mother, was also found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills Hotel suite before she was to attend a pre-Grammy awards party.
Authorities concluded that her death was caused by an accidental drowning. Investigators found a dozen prescription drug bottles in her suite and listed heart disease and cocaine use as contributors to her death.
