UPDATE: The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office completed Bobbi Kristina Brown’s autopsy on Monday and said in a statement, “The initial portion of the autopsy has been completed. The autopsy does not show an obvious underlying cause of death and no significant injuries were noted. No previously unknown medical conditions that could have contributed to death were identified.”

The office said they would perform additional tests. “Subpoenas have been issued to obtain needed documentary information. We do not plan to complete the death certificate or determine a cause and manner of death until all test results are completed and all investigative, medical, and other documentary records are received and thoroughly reviewed. We anticipate that these processes will take several weeks.”

EARLIER: Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death will be evaluated with an autopsy, authorities confirmed Monday. “Interpretation of autopsy findings and other information will also be challenging,” the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said in a statement given to the Associated Press the morning following her death. “However, an autopsy could be helpful to address questions which may arise about the cause of her unresponsiveness and eventual death.”

Brown, 22, died Sunday at the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia, six months after she was found unresponsive at her home near Atlanta. Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobbi Brown, had been in hospital and hospice care since then. According to the examiner’s office, the time between the incident and her death may “complicate” the autopsy report.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” Houston family representative Kristen Foster said on Sunday. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
