The cause of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death has been determined, but the medical examiner’s office is keeping the results under wraps.

“We’re not revealing any information, unfortunately,” the Fulton County (Ga.) Medical Examiner investigations unit told People.

That’s because a court order says the autopsy results must remain sealed.

“The Fulton County Medical Examiner has classified the cause and manner of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death based on information available as of September 25, 2015,” a statement on the website says. “However, a Fulton County Superior Court Order dated September 25, 2015 has been received Sealing the Autopsy Report and ordering the Medical Examiner to not release any further information to the public. The Fulton County District Attorney and Roswell Police Department have been informed of the Medical Examiner’s findings.”

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

Brown, 22, was the only daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. She died surrounded by family in hospice care in July, six months after being found unresponsive and face-down in a bathtub at her Atlanta-area townhouse.

“We prayed and hoped for six months … for something better to happen,” Bobby Brown said during the premiere episode of The Real this month. “But when God calls you, he calls you.”

Bobbi Kristina’s conservators filed a lawsuit against her partner, Nick Gordon, accusing him of wrongful death, but no criminal charges have been filed.
