"I have been away working Xtra hard on getting this book to you guys and I am finally and completely done!!!! Yayyyyyy!" Leolah announced via social media. "We will be taking Pre-orders soon so stay tuned in with me to get your book in your hand asap! I am also going to invite you all to come out to my book launch and book release party-so that we can meet each other-which I am really excited about!"

Leolah has been effusive in sharing her thoughts and theories throughout her niece's hospitalization and after her death and takes issue with recently released autopsy findings. The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office found the presence of "marijuana, alcohol (ethanol), benzoylecgonine (a cocaine-related substance), benzodiazepines (medications used for sedation or to treat anxiety), and morphine" during its investigation. It ruled that her cause of death was "immersion in water and drug intoxication."

The report is not entirely conclusive, though. Investigators don't know how Bobbi Kristina ended up in a bathtub, for example. "Death was clearly not due to natural causes, but the medical examiner has not been able to determine whether death was due to intentional or accidental causes, and has therefore classified the manner of death as Undetermined,” the Medical Examiner's statement concluded.

The autopsy also revealed Bobbi Kristina's body was scarred and missing teeth.

Leolah Brown is convinced her niece met with foul play and detailed her beliefs in an exhaustive social-media post:

"To every single person in this world,

Hear me and hear me good. Do not believe the sick, sad and disrespectful rumors about my niece dying of any drug use. They are nothing more than another way to trick you into believing such lies while covering up the actual facts of the truth! Furthermore, anyone trying to force you to believe this is a malicious, evil and deceiving devil! Make no mistake about it; my niece Bobbi Kristina did not die of any drug overdose nor anything pertaining to drugs."

The post goes on to proffer details regarding what Leolah believes happened to Bobbi Kristina.
