The media wins. Today, Thursday, March 3, 2016 a Fulton County, Georgia judge ordered the autopsy results of Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, to be revealed to the public. The only child of the late Whitney Houston died in July 26, 2015 after falling into a coma over a year ago. She was found face down in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia condominium on January 31, 2015.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office announced back on September 25, 2015, that it had “classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death” while citing the Fulton County Superior Court’s order preventing them from releasing any details to the public. The findings were provided to the Fulton County District Attorney and to Roswell Police who are investigating her death. Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is awaiting a ruling on a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit.
Judge Henry Newkirk granted a motion filed by Atlanta television station WXIA to unseal the autopsy on Friday, March 4, 2016. Bobbi Kristina Brown would have celebrated her 23rd birthday on Friday, March 4, 2016.
Their lawyer argues the rise of heroin in Atlanta gives credence to the motion and if Bobbi Kristina had died of a heroin overdose – as speculated – it’s in the public’s interest to know.
Following her death, Brown’s roommate, Danyela Bradley, claimed that Brown smoked crack and did heroin in addition to smoking marijuana.
Bradley denies she did any drugs harder than marijuana. She tells US Magazine, “I would just visually see her physical being and I could just tell. When she would do the heroin she’d just be very sleepy, nod off, and very less talkative, kind of keep to herself. When she would smoke crack, she would just be not even talkative. She’d just be keeping to herself as well.”
She also said Gordon smoked crack more than Brown and claimed Brown “would do [crack] like once or twice every two weeks.”
