Bobbi Kristina Brown is finally going home. According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office, Bobby Brown, Cissy Houston, and the other members of Bobbi Kristina's family will soon start the next chapter of their long and public ordeal, on their way to healing. And Nick Gordon may begin a new chapter, too.
"Bobbi Kristina Brown's body was released to the family's designated funeral home at about noon today (Tuesday, July 28, 2015)."
The Medical Examiner's Office had previously released information about their preliminary findings in the autopsy of Bobbi Kristina. The public has waited to hear these results, since they may have a bearing on the investigation of Nick Gordon.
"The initial portion of the autopsy has been completed. The autopsy does not show an obvious underlying cause of death and no significant injuries were noted. No previously unknown medical conditions that could have contributed to death were identified. Additional laboratory testing will be performed. Subpoenas have been issued to obtain needed documentary information. We do not plan to complete the death certificate or determine a cause and manner of death until all test results are completed and all investigative, medical, and other documentary records are received and thoroughly reviewed. We anticipate that these processes will take several weeks."
Hot on the heels of that news, Nick Gordon was seen out in public, still wearing his engagement ring on his left hand.

Nick Gordon's mother had issued a statement of her own when Bobbi Kristin's death was announced.
"The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family. Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they've been apart," Gordon's mother said. "Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time."
But Nick's brother, Junior Walker, said Nick Gordon learned about Bobbi Kristina's passing the same way everyone else did: in the news.
"He didn't even know," Junior said. "I told him ET posted it ... and then his lawyer called on the phone while I was talking to him. He was on the phone with me and I told him that ET [was] posting saying Kris is gone."
