The Fulton County District Attorney's Office confirmed to Us Weekly on Thursday, June 25, that it is taking over the Bobbi Kristina Brown case from Roswell Police after she was found facedown and unresponsive on Jan. 31.
"The Roswell Police Department has forwarded its investigative file to our Office," Fulton County DA Paul L. Howard, Jr. told Us. "In view of the new circumstances regarding the health status of Bobbi Kristina Brown, we will be reviewing the case with greater interest. An announcement regarding a charging decision, if any, will be made at the appropriate time.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown's co-guardian, her aunt Pat Houston released a statement on Wednesday, confirming that the late Whitney Houston's daughter was moved into hospice care. "Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," Pat said on behalf of the family. "She is in God's hands now."
Bobbi was found unconscious in the bathtub of her Roswell, Ga., home (which she shares with her boyfriend Nick Gordon) by the couple's friend, Max Lomas, nearly five months ago.
The Roswell Police Department told Us Weekly in February that the high-profile incident was being treated as a criminal investigation. "The Roswell Police Criminal Investigation Division, who is investigating the incident, conducts criminal investigations," the statement to Us read on Feb. 12. "The incident has always been under criminal investigation and has not been reclassified as a criminal investigation."
Subsequently, Bobbi's boyfriend, Nick Gordon — whose bizarre tweets raised eyebrows while he was unable to visit his love in the hospital — was the subject of a Dr. Phil intervention in March. Gordon's mom Michelle Gordon revealed during the program that her son, 25, had gotten into a fight with Bobbi, 22, hours before she was found facedown in the bathtub.
"Nick walked away from the argument," she told Dr. Phil. "He went to another bedroom to fall asleep.” Meanwhile, Bobbi "went up to her room and drew a bath." Gordon eventually ended up in rehab.
Shocking new claims were made in a lawsuit filed on Wednesday, June 24, by Bobbi's conservator Bedelia Hargrove accusing Gordon of assault, fraud, and misappropriating funds from her account. The suit seeks $10 million in damages.
