The cause of Bobbi Kristina Brown's death has been determined, but the medical examiner's office says it will not publicly unveil autopsy results because of a court order.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner said its office in Atlanta, Georgia, was not releasing details because of a Fulton County Superior Court order to seal the results. Ms Brown, 22, the only daughter between Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, died in hospice care on July 26.

The Fulton County district attorney and Roswell Police Department have been notified of the findings.

Ms Brown was found face-down and unresponsive in a bath in the townhouse she shared with Nick Gordon, whom Houston raised as her own, on January 31.

A police report earlier this year described the incident as a drowning.

Her death was similar to the way her mother died.

Houston's body was found face-down in a foot of water in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles just before the 2012 Grammy Awards.

The authorities found prescription drugs in the suite and evidence of heart disease and cocaine in her body but decided her death was an accidental drowning.
