The investigation into Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death and the Jan. 31 incident that left her hospitalized for close to six months has taken a new turn following the 22-year-old's passing on July 26.
According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office, an autopsy will be conducted on Bobbi Kris. But officials noted that since she initially fell ill at the beginning of the year, the process of pinpointing what exactly led to her hospitalization and death will likely be more difficult.
“Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging,” officials said. “However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death.”
The statement from officials also said that Bobbi Kris’ boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is still being investigated as authorities continue to piece together the tragic events that led to her hospitalization. “The Roswell Police Department continues its investigation into the circumstances preceding and surrounding the time of the original incident leading to her death," the statement said. They added that because of “the time which has elapsed between the initial event … and her resulting death will complicate reconstruction of the events surrounding her initial unresponsiveness.”
Following her move to a Duluth, Georgia, hospice center, Gordon remained quiet about his girlfriend’s hospitalization and the situation that left her unresponsive in a bathtub in the Georgia home the couple shared. Gordon has added a few new members to his legal team over the past few months. He is also still facing a $10 million lawsuit filed against him by Bobbi Kristina’s conservator, accusing him of stealing money from his girlfriend and beating her during their time together.
Depending on the outcome of the investigation, Gordon could face possible criminal charges related to Bobbi Kris’ death. And family and friends of Gordon say he is now on sucicide watch after Bobbi Kris’ family confirmed her death on Sunday.
Sources speaking to HollywoodLife.com said that Gordon was “out of control with regret and sadness” over the situation, and his family is now worried that he may hurt himself. Jack Walker Jr., who was close to both Gordon and his mother, also told Access Hollywood that Gordon is "distraught" over Bobbi Kris’ death. "I can’t put it into words right now," Walker said. However, he claimed that to his knowledge, Gordon was not suicidal over her death. What do you think about Nick and Bobbi Kristina’s troubled relationship?
