JUDGE VACATES ORDER TO SEAL BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN’S AUTOPSY REPORT

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Autopsy Report to be Released to the Public

Atlanta-Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr. announces that on Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry M. Newkirk, after listening to the arguments of the parties involved, decided to vacate the order sealing the autopsy of Bobbi Kristina Brown. On September 25th, 2015, when my office requested that the autopsy be withheld from the public, we felt that we had valid public safety and investigative reasons for that request. It is our feeling that those valid reasons still exist; however, as citizens and officers of the court we must, nevertheless, follow the orders and instructions of the court. We would hope that news agencies and the media receiving the report would do so with the discretion and dignity a family who has lost a loved one deserves. Our investigation into the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown will continue.
