Bobbi Kristina death investigated as possible homicide
(MYFOXNY/ AP) - Investigators are now reportedly treating the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of singers Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, as a homicide.
TMZ.com is reporting that both the District Attorney and police suspect foul play.
Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, is a person of interest.

There's been nothing more incredible in my life than having her,” Houston gushed. “God knows, I have been in front of millions and millions of people, and that has been incredible, to feel that give-take thing. But, man, when I gave birth to her and when they put her in my arms, I thought: ‘Th
