More than a year after the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, a judge finally allowed the medical examiner to release her autopsy results the public.
According to the findings gathered by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office in Georgia, several substances were found in Bobbi Kristina’s system, including alcohol, marijuana, morphine, prescription sedatives, anxiety medication, and even a cocaine by-product.

The death of Bobbi Kristina Brown has been compared to that of her famous mother, Whitney Houston due to the similar nature of their deaths. Like Whitney, Bobbi Kristina was also found unconscious in a bathtub, although she made it alive to the hospital as opposed to her mother who was pronounced dead after unsuccessful resuscitation attempts by paramedics.

Autopsy reports of both mother and daughter reveal similar substances in their systems as well. The 22-year-old daughter of Whitney and Bobby Brown reportedly died of "hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, delayed effects" and "immersion of face in water complicating mixed drug intoxication."
Just hours after his late daughter’s autopsy report was released, Bobby Brown canceled his appearance at the Charleston Jam Fest in North Charleston, South Carolina. He was set to perform with other R&B greats such as Keith Sweat, Jagged Edge, and 112, but pulled out due to an “illness.” The release of Bobbi Kristina’s cause of death auspiciously fell on March 4th – or what would have been her 23rd birthday.

Aside from drugs and alcohol found in her system, the ME also indicated signs of acute injury on the body of Bobbi Kristina Brown. The report stated that there were depressions in her skull as well as bruises called ecchymosis found on her arms and thighs. They also noted dozens of “well-healed scars the head and neck, torso, and extremities."
