Nick Gordon's attorneys have issued a statement following the release of Bobbi Kristina Brown's autopsy results. Joe Habachy and Jose Baez tell Us Weekly that Gordon's "life has been tumultuous" since he "lost the love of his life" last year.

"On top of being prohibited from visiting Bobbi Kristina at the hospital for the last six months of her life, Nick has been publicly humiliated for more than a year. And throughout that time, the Fulton County District Attorney's office has tried to make Nick a murderer despite having clear and convincing evidence that Bobbi Kristina's death was nothing more than a tragic accident, evidence that the District Attorney's office fought to seal and conceal from the public rather than allowing her fans to know the truth," Habachy and Baez say in the statement.

"The truth is that Nick tried to save Bobbi Kristina's life. The truth is that Nick cooperated with law enforcement since day one," the statement continues. "The truth is that no one loved Bobbi Kristina more than Nick and no one has suffered more as a result of her death than Nick."

As previously reported, the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office revealed on Friday, March 4, that Brown had evidence of alcohol, morphine and more drugs in her system when she was found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub at her Atlanta-area home on January 31, 2015. Many of her family members, including dad Bobby Brown, believed that Gordon had something to do with the incident.

After the results were unsealed, Brown released a statement of his own. He told Us that "for news affiliates to seek and obtain" the autopsy information before "anyone has been brought to justice for her death is mind blowing" to him.

According to Habachy and Baez, the Fulton County District Attorney's Office "continues to suggest" that the investigation is still ongoing.

"However, at the recent hearing regarding unsealing the autopsy report, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry Newkirk repeatedly reiterated that the Fulton County District Attorney's Office has had 13 months to investigate. By failing to acknowledge that there is simply no evidence of any wrongdoing, they have in essence helped feed the slanderous media frenzy regarding Nick Gordon," Gordon's attorneys tell Us. "Frankly, the right thing for the District Attorney's office to do right now is to tell the public the truth … that this was an accident … or even a suicide, but not a murder. And the right thing for everyone to do is let Nick live his life now and let Bobbi Kristina rest in peace."
