The lovely Bobbi Kristina Brown, whose life ended way too soon, is making waves in the headlines yet again as her autopsy results have recently been unsealed. The only daughter of celebrity couple Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s life seemed to take a downward spiral following the loss of her mother. While the death of Bobbi Kristina has been known to result from the same situation as Whitney Houston’s, the circumstances have remained shrouded in mystery.

On February 11, 2012, Whitney Houston was found face down in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The celebrated star died that day. On January 31, 2015, Bobbi Kristina Brown was found the exact same way, in her own townhome. However, Bobbi Kristina was revived and spent several months in a coma until her ultimate death in July of that year.
The whole world waited with bated breath to learn what truly happened to Bobbi Kristina Brown. Was it an accident, suicide, or murder, perpetrated by the main suspect, her boyfriend, Nick Gordon? While the autopsy reports did give us a clearer picture of what caused Bobbi Kristina Brown’s untimely demise, it failed to show if the act was purposeful or truly an accident.
It was always known that Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina had both consumed a cocktail of drugs at some point prior to entering the bathtub. According to MassLive, cocaine, marijuana, and a prescription anti-anxiety medication were present in the systems of both ladies.
Bobbi Kristina’s autopsy report lists her cause of death as lobar pneumonia “due to ‘hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, delayed effects’ and ‘immersion of face in water complicating mixed drug intoxication.’ ” The drugs Bobbi Kristina had consumed include the following:
“Marijuana, alcohol (ethanol), benzoylecgonine (a cocaine-related substance), benzodiazepines (medications used for sedation or to treat anxiety), and morphine. It could not be determined from toxicology tests whether the morphine resulted from heroin use.”
11 Alive reports Whitney Houston’s drug consumption was chillingly similar to her daughter’s. Her official cause of death was ruled “drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.”
“Cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death. Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death.”
This information, which brings clarification to the causes of death of Bobbi Kristina and Whitney Houston, open up more questions than it answers, unfortunately. Theories abound regarding the true cause behind these tragedies.
Perhaps Bobbi Kristina Brown was so distraught over her mother’s passing she chose to exit the world in the same way Whitney had gone. While this seems to make a lot of sense, it just does not sit well with many. Bobbi Kristina had been working on exciting upcoming acting projects.
In an attempt to make her death look like a suicide, someone (most believe Nick Gordon) plied Bobbi Kristina with the same drugs Houston consumed, and forced her into the bathtub. Adding to the murder theory is the belief that Houston’s death was also intentionally caused by someone — again, fingers point to Nick Gordon.
Still others believe the accident theory. This is a much weaker scenario, however, to believe both women died of the exact same accident almost exactly three years apart.

A criminal investigation has been in the works since the day Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive. According to the district attorney, the investigation will continue. Apparently, there was enough information to lead the police to believe foul play had occurred, and though the autopsy report was disappointing in that it did not reveal a clear answer to reason for the incident, the investigation will not so easily be abandoned.
