Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey is bracing for the expected burial service of Bobbi Kristina Brown, who died at 22 years old Sunday. Brown had spent months in a medically induced coma after being found unconscious in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia home in January. Brown is expected to buried next to her mother, iconic singer Whitney Houston.
According to NJ.com, security is on hand to ensure that visitors to Fairview Cemetery steer clear of Whitney Houston's grave, where Bobbi Krisitina Brown is expected to be buried beside Houston. Security will likely intensify as news vans and photographers descend on the cemetery in anticpation of the service. Some news vans have already been spotted patrolling the location.
However, though all eyes are on Fairview, officials from the cemetery and the town Westfield say they have not been contacted by Brown's family to officially set up the service and burial.
"Please be advised that the Town of Westfield has not received any notification regarding a private burial for Ms. Brown in Westfield," wrote Joan Thermann, executive assistant to the Westfield mayor and township administrator, in an email, reports NJ.com.
This contradicts sources within Brown's family, who have maintained that Bobbi Kristina will be buried in Fairview, according to ABC news.
Unfortunately, when and where Bobbi Kristina is laid to rest will likely not be the last of the trauma for her family. Brown's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who found Brown unconscious in January, is being investigated in connection with his girlfriend's death. The investigation stems from unexplained injuries on Brown's body -- missing teeth and bruises -- that Gordon alleges were sustained during his attempts at administering CPR to Brown.
While the investigation ensues, Brown's family will try to grieve. Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown, broke his silence on the death of his daughter Monday afternoon in a statement to People magazine.
“Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl.”
