Now a postmortem has discovered what killed Bobbi, who passed away at a hospice in July aged 22 – but the results WON’T be shared with the public.

A medical examiner was ordered to seal them by a court in the state of Georgia, officials have confirmed, meaning that the nature of her death remains shrouded in mystery.

‘The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death,’ the office said in a statement reported by CNN.

‘However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has been received Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public.’

Bobbi – the only child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston – died six months after she was found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub at her home in Atlanta.

She spent several months in a medically induced coma before being transferred to a hospice in Georgia in June due to her failing health.

On 26 July the youngster lost her battle for life, just over three years since Bobbi’s mother Whitney passed away at the age of 48.

In an eery similarity the singer was also discovered in the bath like her daughter came to be, though her passing was deemed to be due to an ‘accidental’ drug overdose.

There has been much speculation surrounding what happened to Bobbi, with much of it focusing on her boyfriend Nick Gordon who found the aspiring singer unresponsive in the bath.

In July local authorities informed US gossip site TMZ that they had ‘amped up’ their investigation into Bobbi Kristina’s death, which was being treated as a homicide investigation – with Nick remaining a ‘person of interest’.

Nick has never been charged in connection with Bobbi’s death though.
