Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of singer Whitney Houston, died on Sunday in hospice care, six months after she was found face-down in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta home. Bobby Brown’s lawyer, Christopher Brown, issued a statement on his behalf saying Bobbi Kristina, or Krissy as the family called her, had succumbed to her injuries and taken “her place in heaven.” “Krissy was and is an angel. Following her passing, an initial autopsy was carried out by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office on Monday. “The initial portion of the autopsy has been completed.

Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they’ve been apart,” Michele revealed in a press release to NBC News. “Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. The autopsy does not show an obvious underlying cause of death and no significant injuries were noted,” it said in a statement according to Reuters. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time.” On January 31 she was rushed to hospital after being found unresponsive in the bathtub at her home near Atlanta, Georgia. The agency said its initial autopsy turned up “no significant injuries” or “previously unknown medical conditions.” It said the next step is ordering lab tests and issuing subpoenas for documents — most likely Brown’s hospital records.

And he attempted to control his image with a reality series based on his home life, but the show became shorthand for jokes about dysfunctional family relationships. Bobbi Kristina never regained consciousness and she met her demise at the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia last Sunday while surrounded by family members.

Born and raised in the shadow of fame and litigation, shattered by the loss of her mother, Bobbi Kristina was overwhelmed by the achievements and demons of others before she could begin to figure out who she was. She identified herself on Twitter as Daughter of Queen WH, Entertainer/Actress with William Morris & Co, and “LAST of a dying breed.” She told Oprah Winfrey shortly after her mother’s death in 2012 that she wanted to carry on her mother’s legacy by singing, acting and dancing.

He said the first obstacle for forensic pathologists in Brown’s case will be a living body’s ability to mend itself and erase medical evidence. “Normally, when we do autopsies, we do them in people who freshly died.

Her voice, an ideal blend of power, grace and beauty, made classics out of songs like Saving All My Love For You, ’I Will Always Love You and The Greatest Love of All. Things like toxicology and injuries are clear,” said Baden, who helped investigate high-profile cases including the deaths of comedian John Belushi and civil rights worker Medgar Evers. “Because she was in the hospital for a long time, any drugs that may have been in the body will be gone after a few days. Bobby Brown, who had a bad-boy image, also became a huge star, selling platinum records with New Edition and going solo before drugs and legal woes derailed his career. Authorities found prescription drugs in the suite, and evidence of heart disease and cocaine in her body, but determined her death was an accidental drowning. For the entirety of their union, Brown and Houston were scrutinized — with the brunt of the vitriol from critics, fans and the media aimed toward Brown.

Bobbi Kristina, then 18, was at the hotel and became so hysterical she had to be taken to hospital. “She wasn’t only a mother, she was a best friend,” she told Winfrey. From the moment the pair began courting each other after meeting at the 1989 Soul Train Music Awards, the media, and Houston’s own family, loudly wondered why.

Henry Lee, the forensic scientist whose famous cases include the death of child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, said the passage of time could make Brown’s autopsy “much harder.” But he said valuable clues could possibly still be gained from examining her lungs and digestive system. The massively successful R&B group helped lay the groundwork for modern boy bands such as New Kids on the Block, ‘NSync and Backstreet Boys with syrupy R&B-steeped pop hits and legions of fans.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said he and his office are interested in reviewing the investigative file to determine whether any charges will be filed. With fame and fortune, however, came drinking and drugs, and by the time he broke out with 1988’s “Don’t Be Cruel” — its new jack swing sound and mature lyrics a departure from the bubble gum fare of his earlier work — he was an R&B bad boy. He would be arrested for numerous offenses over the years, including driving under the influence, drug possession and battery for allegedly striking Houston. The headlines were endless during their marriage, with rumors of the pair abusing cocaine, crack and heroin — and given the perception of the pair when they met, it’s not hard to see why much of the public assumed Brown was the dark cloud over Houston’s sparkling pop image.

In the case of solving her daughter’s death, much will depend on how thorough an investigation police launched when Brown was first admitted to hospital in January, said Ken Hodges, a former Georgia prosecutor who’s now a defense attorney in Atlanta. “The level of intensity that law enforcement gives things oftentimes is based on the severity of what they’ve got,” said Hodges, who served 12 years as district attorney in Dougherty County. “In a homicide, it’s often given to the more seasoned detectives. That perception may have played a role in Brown’s solo career, which never quite regained the same momentum under the glaring wattage of Houston’s superstardom and his continuous legal troubles. If this is perceived at the beginning as a drug overdose and not necessarily criminal, it may not be investigated at all or might be given to a less experience detective.” Any fingerprints, blood, hair samples or other physical evidence that police failed to collect six months ago would likely now have vanished, Hodges said.

Houston and Brown seemed unaware of their dysfunction in Bravo’s short-lived reality series “Being Bobby Brown,” a show rife with more lows than highs. Or any evidence still at the scene months later — such as a fingerprint on a doorknob — would have far less value now because of potential comings and goings since. “They may have done it all six months ago,” Hodges said. “But time is never a law enforcement officer’s or a prosecutor’s friend.

They were the butt of frequent parody — none as aggressive as the skits on Fox’s “MadTV” — and years later when Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna and their saga of off-and-on-again romance played out in public, the young singers were called “the new Bobby and Whitney.” But in her 2013 memoir, “Remembering Whitney,” Houston’s mother, Cissy, admitted that Brown wasn’t the one who introduced the singer to hard drugs. She even sat down with Oprah Winfrey and said the same, but it was hard to imagine Houston being the one to introduce Brown to substances beyond marijuana.
