A fatal cocktail of marijuana, booze and anxiety drugs led to Bobbi Kristina’s drowning, in chilling echoes of mum Whitney Houston’s death.
Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office in Atlanta released a statement on the death of Whitney and Bobby Brown’s daughter as officials prepare to release the full post-mortem report.
It states immersion in water and a drug intoxication did lead to her death and that the cause of death was Lobar pneumonia. Marijuana and alcohol were involved, along with medication used for sedation or to treat anxiety.
The autopsy was carried out by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office, and was revealed after a judge order.
“The cause of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death as determined by the Fulton County Medical Examiner is: Lobar pneumonia,” the statement from the examiner’s office read.
“Due to: Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, delayed effects. Due to: Immersion of face in water complicating mixed drug intoxication.” The drugs included marijuana, alcohol, benzoylecgonine, benzodiazepines and morphine.
Her tragic death at age 22 has been classified as “undetermined” as it is still not clear whether her death was “intentional” or “accidental”.
Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in her bathtub in January of 2015, and was in a coma till she died on July 26, 2015.
