New reports have emerged that Atlanta authorities are looking deeper into the details of what, when, where, and how Bobbie Kristina Brown, 21, was found by first responders to be “unresponsive, meaning not breathing, no heartbeat,” as per Roswell Police Department spokeswoman, Lisa Holland. The police department has said that Bobbi Kristina‘s friend, Maxwell Byron Lomas, 24, of Duluth, GA, was the person who called 911 at 10:20 a.m. from her condo. Emergency radio transmissions were heard referring to a “Twenty-one-year-old female in the bathtub, face down. PD’s en route.” When EMS arrived, Bobbie Kris was not in the tub face down, but on the floor being given CPR by her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, 25, then the EMS crew took control of the situation. The police spokeswoman also stated at the time that the event was termed a “medical incident” and a “drowning” but no indication of drug- or alcohol-related causes.
In the days that followed, Bobbie Kristina’s family has have come forward to say that drugs were found during a later police investigation but this has not been confirmed by the police department. In recent days, the Roswell Police investigators have discovered suspicious injuries to Bobbi Kris’ body.
Accusations are being made that there was an altercation one hour before Bobbie Kris was allegedly found in the bathtub. Piecing the timeline together from various sources, it appears Mr. Lomas arrived at Bobbie Kris’ house around 9 a.m. and, Mr. Gordon let him into the home, and told him that Bobbi Kris was upstairs in the bedroom. According to Mr. Lomas, Mr. Gordon then disappeared in the house for about an hour. A cable company serviceman arrived around 10 a.m.. First reports said Mr. Lomas let him in, showed him around the home, and later, the two went upstairs and found Bobbie Kris and then yelled for Mr. Gordon. Others say Mr. Gordon answered the door and stayed with the service man, while Mr. Lomas went upstairs to alert Bobbie Kris. His lawyer says that Mr. Lomas was alone and immediately called 911 at 10:25 a.m. The police have not released details as to the state of Bobbie Kris’ body, who said she was found “face down in the bathtub,” or whether Bobbie Kris was wet or dry, and where she was placed in the home, when the EMS crew arrived. Mr. Lomas is alleging that Mr. Gordon “cleaned up the home and removed blood stains before police arrived.”
As recently as January 14 of this year, Mr. Lomas was arrested, held at the Fulton County Jail, GA, and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of Alprazolam (generic for Xanax) and possession of firearm or knife during commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies, and later released on bond of $15,000, according to MyFoxAtlanta.
Mr. Gordon, who lived with Bobbi Kris, and her mother, the late Whitney Houston, since the age of 12 when his mother was no longer able to care for him. He was rumored to be married to Bobbi Kris, as per social media postings last year, but the Brown family has since disclosed that the two were never legally married. This fact has allowed the Brown family to bar Mr. Gordon from visiting Bobbi Kris. Further, RadarOnline is reporting that Marion “Pat” Houston, Bobbi Kris’ aunt and Executrix of Whitney Houston‘s multi-million-dollar estate that was left in its entirety to Bobbi Kris, filed a police incident report in Alpharetta, GA, in 2014, claiming that Mr. Gordon made “threatening” online remarks to her after she refused to increase Bobbi Kris‘ allowance. Bobbi Kris is not due to inherit her mother’s full estate until she reaches the age of 35. In the notes section of the report, the detective wrote, “After reviewing the Twitter post . . . it was discovered that Mr. Gordon has not made any threats of violence towards Marion. The Alpharetta police department will not further investigate this matter.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown is the only child of superstars Whitney Houston, deceased, and Bobby Brown, 46, who were married from 1992 to 2007, and is still in a medically induced coma at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA, after being transferred there from the hospital that first treated her, North Fulton, also in Atlanta. Reportedly, Bobbi Kris’ attorney stated that they are privately looking into events surrounding the incident. Many family members have been visiting, and reports have alleged that her medical team is suggesting taking Bobbi Kris off of life support. As the next of kin, Bobbi Krisn would be the person to take such action, but is reported to be against it and hoping for a miracle. The third anniversary of Whitney Houston‘s death is February 11, and rumors are floating that if there is any day that such action would be taken, sadly, that might be the day.
