Bobby Brown Jr's death investigation 'may have been linked to drugs' as autopsy set to be released in days

BOBBY Brown Jr's death investigation "may have been linked to drugs" and his autopsy results are set to be released within days, The Sun can exclusively report.

The 28-year-old son of singer Bobby Brown Sr, Whitney Houston's ex-husband, was found dead in his Encino home on November 18, and his autopsy was placed on a security hold after a request from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Detective Kenneth White exclusively told The Sun: "The death investigation may have been linked to a criminal investigation, narcotic related, and that's why there was a security hold.

"The case has now been completed, it's closed. And that's it. Forthcoming in the next few days, the autopsy report will likely be available."

The autopsy was previously "deferred," while cops said last year there was no criminal investigation and no foul play was suspected.

Police arrived at Bobby Brown Jr's home after a report of an unspecified "medical emergency" in the 5200 block of White Oak Avenue shortly around 1.50pm and officers pronounced him dead at the scene.

Bobby Brown Sr released a statement after the tragic death saying the family was left "devastated."

He said: "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.”

Mikey Polo, a close friend of Bobby Jr's, also spoke out in an exclusive interview with The Sun, saying he was adamant he did not have a drug problem – but could have been partying. 

He shared: "Bobby was one of my close friends – we would be at the same house, making music together, partying together, chilling together, waking up on the couch and talking to each other.

"It's a huge shock to me – I was only just with him.

"Bobby was a real energetic person, he was cool, we'd all hang around in the same group of friends making music.

"He wasn't badly harmed or anything like that, he was found dead and we're still waiting for news on that."

He added: "It was probably too much partying or something like that.

"But I want everybody to know that my bro Bobby was one of the best people – I know people are going to look at how his father grew up and everything that Whitney did – but not Bobby.

"He had a lot to live for and if he had a drug problem, trust me, we would have stopped it. I would not let Bobby do anything and f**k up in front of me. I've lost too many people to drugs.

"I know people are going to say, 'Oh he's Bobby Brown's son he must have taken too much coke or too much whatever' – I don't want anybody looking at him like a druggie who overdosed."

The young singer's mother, Kim Ward, dated Bobby Sr on and off for 11 years before he began his relationship with Whitney Houston.

Kim gave birth to Bobby Jr the same year the singer married the late Whitney.

He was one of Bobby Sr's seven children, the second to have an untimely passing.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the performer's daughter with Whitney, also tragically died back in 2015.

She was found in her bathtub with high levels of cocaine and alcohol in her bloodstream at age 22.

The family kept her on life support for several months before she passed in a desperate attempt to save her life.

Her tragic end was strangely reminiscent of her mother Whitney's death in 2012.

The 48-year-old hitmaker was also found dead in her bathtub from cocaine intoxication and coronary artery disease.
