This Is What Caused Nick Gordon’s Death


Authorities have determined the cause of death for Nick Gordon, the former fiancé of Bobbi Kristina Brown, according to media reports.

On New Year’s Day, the 30-year-old was found unresponsive in a hotel room in Maitland, Florida, which is a suburb of Orlando, according to a statement from the Maitland Police Department.

Gordon reportedly died of a heroin overdose, according to a toxicology and autopsy report obtained by TMZ. The report shows that he was found suffering cardiac arrest. He died seven hours after paramedics arrived to his hotel to attempt to revive him.

The former metro Atlantan died nearly five years after Bobbi Kristina Brown, who was found unresponsive, facedown in a water-filled tub at her Roswell home in January 2015.

Gordon became a part of the Houston-Brown family when his mother Michelle Gordon, a former friend of  Whitney Houston, asked the pop icon to look after her troubled adolescent son, according to Houston began raising Gordon like a son alongside her then-8-year-old daughter. Houston never legally adopted him nor put him in her will.
