Bobbi Kristina — the only child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston — died on July 26 at the age of 22, following almost six months of hospitalization.

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s final autopsy results are in, but the findings  which would reveal her cause of death  have not been released to the public. A court order has sealed the medical examiner’s report.

A statement published to the medical examiner’s website says that the Fulton County District Attorney and Roswell Police Department have been notified of the findings.

The statement reads: "The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown's death based on information available as of September 25, 2015. However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has been received Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public. The Fulton County District Attorney and Roswell Police Department have been informed of the Medical Examiner's findings."

“We’re not revealing any information, unfortunately,” the Fulton County Medical Examiner Office’s investigations unit confirmed to People.

Bobbi Kristina — the only child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston — died on July 26 at the age of 22, following almost six months of hospitalization.

The initial autopsy results that came in immediately following her death in July did “not show an obvious underlying cause of death,” according to a press release from the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office at the time.

TMZ speculates that the results of Bobbi Kristina’s final autopsy may be sealed because of a potential criminal investigation against Nick Gordon, her longtime boyfriend.

An amendment to an existing lawsuit was filed against Gordon over the summer by Bobbi Kristina's court-appointed conservator, Bedelia Hargrove, which claimed that Gordon "gave Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail rendering her unconscious and then put her face-down in a tub of cold water causing her to suffer brain damage”  allegedly leading to her eventual death.
