The medical examiner said it wasn't possible to determine whether her death was accidental or intentional.

On what would have been the 23rd birthday of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the late daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office has made public the results of her autopsy.

Bobbi Kristina died from a combination of drowning and drug intoxication, according to the autopsy. The medical examiner's office said alcohol, marijuana and drugs used for sedation and to treat anxiety were involved, according to CBS News. The medical examiner said it wasn't possible to determine whether her death was accidental or intentional.

The previously sealed autopsy results were made public on Friday morning after several media outlets filed requests for the documents to be unsealed. Bobbi Kristina Brown died on July 26, 2015, after spending several months unresponsive in hospice care.

Bobby Brown criticized the unsealing of the autopsy results in a statement.

"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," Brown said in a statement.

"While this action is unsettling, we will continue in our efforts in the civil lawsuit and the criminal investigation," said Christopher Brown, the Brown family's lawyer. "Bobby Brown has had to be strong and mourn his loved ones in a fashion that is foreign to most people. So public, so raw, with apparently no end in sight. Hopefully public indictments and prosecution will lead to private healing and closure for Bobby Brown and his family."

The aforementioned civil lawsuit was filed against Nick Gordon in June 2015, with reps for Bobby Brown alleging that Bobbi Kristina's former boyfriend was emotionally and physically abusive toward her.
