Drugs and Alcohol Play Roles in Bobbi Kristina Brown's Death, Says Medical Examiner

Fulton County Medical Examiner concluded that the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown died from a combination of drugs and drowning.

AceShowbiz - The results from Bobbi Kristina Brown's autopsy have finally been unsealed. According to a document released by Fulton County Medical Examiner on Friday, March 4, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston died from a combination of drugs and drowning.

A toxicology report found drugs, including "marijuana, alcohol (ethanol), benzoylecgonine (a cocaine-related substance), benzodiazepines (medications used for sedation or to treat anxiety), and morphine" in her system at time of death. It could not be determined from toxicology tests whether the morphine resulted from heroine use.

The report also noted that Bobbi Kristina showed signs of acute injury (bruising and scarring) and that, at 95 pounds, was "under-nourished." It, however, cannot be determined if her death was intentional or unintentional.

The autopsy results were previously sealed due to ongoing investigation involving her boyfriend Nick Gordon. A judge granted a request from a local media outlet to unseal them on Thursday, while police "investigation into the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown will continue."

Her father Bobby Brown's attorney said in a statement on Friday, "We will continue in our efforts in the civil lawsuit and the criminal investigation." Her conservator has also filed wrongful death lawsuit against Nick, claiming he "injected" her with a "toxic mixture."

Meanwhile, a source close to Nick insists that the autopsy report "backs up his claim" that he didn't kill Bobbi Kristina. "She had drugs in her system, and this wasn't a cocktail. Nick didn't inject drugs into her," the source tells PEOPLE, adding, "Sadly, Bobbi Kristina used drugs for a long time, and she drowned in her bathtub. It's a tragedy, but Nick didn't kill her."
