Nick Gordon “Tried To Save” Bobbi Kristina Brown, May Have Been Suicide: Lawyers
As Gossip Cop reported, Brown’s autopsy report was released last week, nearly eight months after she died. Her death came almost six months after she was found face-down in the bathtub of the home she shared with Gordon in Georgia. The Medical Examiner found that Brown died of pneumonia, brought on by water immersion and drug toxicity, but could not determine whether her death was accidental.
But while Brown’s family has pointed the finger at Gordon, and a wrongful death lawsuit against him is still pending, his lawyers believe the autopsy findings prove his innocence. In a lengthy statement, Jose Baez and Joe S. Habachy jointly say:
“Nick Gordon’s life has been tumultuous since January of 2015 when he lost the love of his life. 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.
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.
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 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.
The Fulton County District attorney’s office even now continues to suggest that there is an ongoing investigation. 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.
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.”
Brown’s family and the Fulton County D.A.’s office have not yet responded to the statement. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates as appropriate.
