Yesterday, an Atlanta judge granted a news media request to unseal Bobbi Kristina Brown's autopsy report which reveals her cause of death. Bobbi Kristina passed away from a combination of drowning and drug intoxication, according to the autopsy. In a press release shared withCBS News, the medical examiner's office reported alcohol, marijuana, and drugs used for sedation as well as anxiety medication were also involved. However, the report said it wasn't possible to verify if the death was accidental or intentional.

Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown, released a statement following the release of the autopsy report. “First and foremost, 23 years ago today, Bobbi Kristina was born. Krissy will always live in my heart and soul. I love my baby girl. For news affiliates to seek and obtain my daughter’s autopsy report, before anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing to me. Please pray for my family," he said.

Previously, Bobbi Kristina's autospy report had been sealed by a court order. However, the report became public after several media outlets filed requests for the documents to be made public. Media lawyers argued the sealing order violated court rules because there was no public notification or opportunity for a hearing, according to Billboard. There is still an ongoing civil lawsuit and criminal investigation as to who is responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina. Her ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, remains a person of interest in the investigation and at the center of Bobby Brown's lawsuit.
