Bobby Brown Jr.’s Drug-Related Death Sparks Criminal Investigation

The death of Bobby Brown Jr. has triggered a criminal investigation.

According to TMZ, the L.A. County Medical Examiner's Office announced that the 28-year-old son of Bobby Brown died last November from an accidental overdose of cocaine, fentanyl, and alcohol.

Per the report, a witness told police that Brown Jr. had drunk tequila and snorted both half a Percocet and cocaine.

On Tuesday, TMZ reported that Brown Jr.’s narcotics-related death has prompted the police to open a criminal probe into the matter.

The outlet says officers quickly caught on to the drugs after talking to witnesses — including Brown Jr.’s girlfriend — who saw him before his death.

However, no drugs or paraphernalia were found at the scene when his body was recovered.

The L.A. County D.A.'s Office must now determine if criminal charges will be filed or if the case needs to be handed back to cops for additional investigation.

As of this writing, no arrests have been made.

Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Jeff Lee said, at the time of Brown Jr.’s death, that no foul play was suspected.

Sadly, the Brown family has endured a number of tragedies through the years.

On February 11, 2012, Brown’s wife Whitney Houston drowned in a bathtub due to a combination of coronary artery disease and cocaine intoxication.

Three years later, Brown and Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Alpharetta, Georgia, home. The 22-year-old died in hospice care on July 26, 2015.

Days after Brown Jr.’s death, Brown released a statement to TMZ, saying, “Please keep my family in your prayers at this time. Losing my son at this point in our lives has devastated my family. There are no words to explain the pain.”

Brown Jr., whose mother was Kim Ward, had five siblings: half-brother Landon; sister La'Princia; half-brother Cassius; half-sister Bodhi; and half-sister Hendrix.
