Just hours after it was reported that the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown will be investigated as a homicide, findings from her preliminary autopsy suggest there were no signs of foul play.
TMZ reports the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s autopsy shows “no obvious underlying cause of death,” adding “no significant injuries were noted.”

This is especially important for the late 22-year-old’s companion, Nick Gordon, who has been investigated by authorities ever since BK was found unconscious in the bathtub of their shared home in Roswell, Ga. on Jan. 31.
Additionally, another report by TMZ suggests Bobbi Kristina has a history of passing out, inebriated, in bathtubs.

The report claims the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston got “extremely drunk” the night before her mother’s death in February 2012 and fell asleep in the tub at Beverly Hilton Hotel, ultimately flooding the room.
Just one day later, her mother also fell asleep in the bathtub while wasted and ultimately died, with "drowning" and "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" listed as her cause of death.
While it has been said that Bobbi Kristina has been “deathly afraid of bathtubs” since her mother’s death, Nick’s lawyer Jose Baez — known for defending several high profile clients such as Casey Anthony and George Zimmerman, the man who infamously shot Trayvon Martin — is reportedly familiar with the Beverly Hilton incident and allegedly plans to use it to prove Nick’s innocence.
Following the news of Bobbi Kristina’s death, Nick is said to be suicidal. Even though he has yet to comment, his mother, Michele, has spoken out on his behalf and confirmed his distress.
“The passing of Bobbi Kristina is devastating to Nick and our family,” she tells Us Weekly.
“Nick loved and cared for Krissi deeply, and he has suffered greatly each and every day they’ve been apart. Nick and our family are in mourning, and we ask that you respect our privacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both the Houstons and the Browns during this difficult time.”
