(Newser) – No miracle recoveries: Bobbi Kristina Brown is dead at age 22, about six months after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her home. The circumstances of her death are similar to that of her mother, Whitney Houston, in 2012. "Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family," says a family statement. "She is finally at peace in the arms of God." Bobbi Kristina never completely regained consciousness since being found at home in Roswell, Ga., on Jan. 31 and had been on life support following what People calls her "near-drowning." Her family, including dad Bobby Brown, put her in hospice care last month and withdrew medications.

TMZ reports that her death could lead to murder charges because police found bruises on Brown's face and body, and it says that boyfriend Nick Gordon would the "first person of interest." He and friend Max Lomas reportedly found her submerged in the tub, and authorities think she was underwater for up to five minutes. Given her parents' fame, Brown had been in the tabloid spotlight for virtually all of her life, notes Entertainment Tonight.
