Authorities have released autopsy results for Bobbi Kristina Brown, revealing that she died from a combination of drowning and drugs.
TMZ.com reports that her “official cause of death is eerily similar to her mother, Whitney Houston — drowning while using a bunch of drugs, but the autopsy could not determine if there was foul play.”
The official report released today by the Medical Examiner for Fulton County, Ga., says the full cause of death was pneumonia and encephalopathy. TMZ notes that this means “her lungs filled with water and her brain was injured — clearly caused by the time she spent submerged in her bathtub on January 31, 2015.”
Brown was placed in a medically induced coma after being found face down in the bathtub at her home in Duluth, Ga. She never came out of the coma, and died on July 26. She was 22.
The statement says: “The underlying cause of death is the condition which starts the downhill course of events leading to death and in this case is the immersion associated with drug intoxication. The pneumonia and encephalopathy are more immediate causes which resulted from the immersion and drug intoxication.”
TMZ adds: “The drugs found in her system were marijuana, alcohol, a cocaine-related substance called benzoylecgonine, benzodiazepines (prescription anti-anxiety meds) and morphine.”
Whitney Houston, Brown’s mother, died in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton on Feb. 11, 2012.
