Just one day after a judge ruled that Bobbi Kristina Brown's autopsy and toxicology reports should be unsealed, the medical examiner has released formerly secret information about the late star's tragic death, RadarOnline.com can report.
According to Georgia's Fulton County Medical Examiner documents obtained by Radar, the 22-year-old lost her life last summer due to lobar pneumonia, caused by hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, or brain damage resulting from lack of oxygen, and by immersion of face in water complicating mixed drug intoxication.
Since six whole months lapsed between her tragic near drowning and her eventual death in July, "the autopsy alone could not reveal the underlying cause of death," the Medical Examiner explained. "Thus, the underlying cause of death is based substantially on review of medical records, the results of toxicology tests, investigative records, and the fact the autopsy did not show any other likely underlying cause of death."
Drugs discovered in her system included marijuana, alcohol, benzoylecgonin (a cocaine-related substance), benzodiazepines (anxiety medication) and morphine, which could have resulted from heroin use.
Luckily for Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon, the manner of death was ruled undetermined.
"The medical examiner has not been able to determine whether the death was due to intentional or accidental causes," the statement read.
As Radar previously reported, Brown's conservator slapped Gordon, 20, with a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit in October, accusing him of killing his girlfriend by injecting her with a "toxic mixture" following a "violent altercation."
The daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, who is reportedly in rehab for cocaine and alcohol abuse, was discovered unresponsive in her bathtub on the morning of January 31, 2015.
Tragically, she never recovered from the incident.
