Bobbi Kristina Brown died on Sunday – six months after she was found unconscious in a bathtub.
The 22-year-old aspiring singer was rushed to hospital and placed in a medically-induced coma on January 31 after she was discovered face-down in the tub at her townhouse in Roswell, Georgia.
She was later transferred to Peachtree Christian Hospice, where her distraught family and loved ones maintained a bedside vigil and eventually said their goodbyes as her condition deteriorated.
She passed away, surrounded by her family, at the hospice on Sunday – just three years after her famous mother, singer Whitney Houston, died aged 48 in a bathtub at a hotel in Beverly Hills.
According to TMZ, officials are planning to treat the death of Bobbi Kristina – who was found in the tub with bruises on her face and body, swollen lips and a missing tooth – as a murder investigation.
The first person of interest in the case will reportedly be her boyfriend, Nick Gordon.
On Sunday night, Gordon – who was banned from visiting his girlfriend by the Brown and Houston families – was said to be ‘out of control with regret and sadness’ after learning of her death.

‘Nick is on suicide watch. He keeps saying that if only [Bobbi Kristina] had heard his voice, things would have been different. She may have lived,’ an anonymous source toldHollywoodLife.com.
Another source close to Gordon toldPeople; ‘Nick is very upset. You can say what you want about him and Bobbi Kristina, but he really did love her very much, and is devastated that she is gone.’
They then added; ‘Nick was holding out hope that he would see her one final time. He is very emotional.’
The Houston family said in a statement that Bobbi Kristina – who was the sole heir to her late mother’s fortune, estimated to be a huge $20million – ‘is now finally at peace in the arms of God.’
In a statement via a representative, they said: ‘Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. 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.’
Meanwhile, a relative said Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, was ‘very emotional’ about his daughter’s death but knows ‘that [she] is in a better place now’.
Entertainment Tonight is reporting that Bobbi Kristina’s funeral will be held in Atlanta, and that she will be buried next to her mother in New Jersey.
As for the autopsy, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a statement that the time that has passed since Bobbi Kristina’s death will ‘complicate’ the process.
‘Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging,’ said the medical examiner’s office.
‘However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death.’
