Bobby Brown is not happy that Bobbi Kristina Brown’s autopsy report was unsealed and released to the public. The New Edition singer released a statement Friday saying it was “mind-blowing” that media published the findings before the family could close their criminal investigation into his daughter's death.
“First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born,” Brown said in a statement to E! Online. “Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl.”
He continued, “For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter’s autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death, is mind-blowing to me. Please pray for my family.”
The family’s lawyer, Christopher Brown, told E! that they received notice earlier this week that two news outlets were granted access to the autopsy report. He said it was “unsettling,” but the family would still continue their “efforts in the civil lawsuit and the criminal investigation.”
Bobbi Kristina’s autopsy results were originally sealed from the public in September 2015. TMZ reported at the time that the Fulton County, Georgia, medical examiner didn’t want to release the information because it might interfere with the death investigation. Roswell, Georgia, police believed Bobbi Kristina’s death may have been a homicide.
As previously reported, Bobbi Kristina’s then-boyfriend Nick Gordon has been publicly accused several times of playing a role in her death. The aspiring actress’ aunt, Leolah Brown, has often claimed Gordon murdered her niece. Gordon has denied any wrongdoing and has never been arrested or charged in the case.
In the autopsy results, the Fulton County medical examiner stated that Whitney Houston’s daughter died from lobar pneumonia, caused by “hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy” and “immersion of face in water complicating mixed drug intoxication.”
