On Sunday evening, Bobbi Kristina Brown died at the age of 22 surrounded by family and friends. Brown, the daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, had been in the hospital in a medically-induced coma for the past six months after she was found unconscious in her bathtub on January 31. She was moved into hospice care on June 24.
“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” said the Brown family in a statement. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
Us Weekly reports that the circumstances surrounding Brown’s death remain unclear:
...Police confirmed to Us that the entire case surrounding her death is being treated as a criminal investigation following unexplained markings on her body. Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was questioned in regard to the circumstances surrounding her death. He also appeared on Dr. Phil in March, where his interview was quickly turned into an intervention after Gordon was clearly slurring his words and threatening his own life. He entered rehab soon after and left in April.
Brown’s death comes a little over three years after her mother was found dead in her bathtub before the 2012 Grammy Awards.
“I still feel her everywhere,” Brown said of her mother in the reality show The Houstons: On Our Own. “She’s still around me and that’s what keeps me comfortable, is knowing that my best friend, my everything, is still with me.”
