In fact the matter "has always been under criminal investigation," spokesperson Lisa Holland said in a Wednesday statement. Previously it had been described as "a rescue case."

Semantics aside, the matter "may or may not result in criminal charges being brought against individuals," Holland said. "This remains an active investigation and the Roswell Police has no further statement or information to release at this time."

Bobbi Kristina remains hospitalized with family and friends by her side and supporters lifting the family up in prayer. On Monday night, night hundreds gathered at the Riverdale Town Center for a vigil in Bobbi Kristina's honor. Afterward her aunt Leolah Brown thanked supporters for coming out.

Bobbi Kristina, 21, is the only child of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown. She has been hospitalized since Jan. 31 when she was found unresponsive and face down in a bathtub.
