ATLANTA (AP) — A medical examiner says Bobbi Kristina Brown’s face being immersed in water, along with drug intoxication, led to her death last year.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office in Atlanta released a statement Friday morning on the death as it prepares to release the full autopsy report.

The 22-year-old daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhome Jan. 31, 2015, and died in hospice care July 26.Related: Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston, has died

The office says it reviewed medical records, investigative files and other documents to determine how Brown likely died. The medical examiner’s office says marijuana and alcohol were involved in the death, along with medications used for sedation or to treat anxiety.

A judge on Thursday granted a request filed by media organizations to unseal the autopsy.

Bobby Brown says it’s “unsettling” and “mind blowing” that autopsy results are being made public in the death of his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

In a statement released by his lawyer early Friday, Bobby Brown said he will continue efforts with a civil lawsuit in her death and the criminal investigation.

Brown said he remains hopeful that “public indictments and prosecution” will come about in the case.
