Los Angeles prosecutors are considering filing criminal charges against drug dealers responsible for supplying the drugs that contributed to the death of Bobby Brown, Jr.
A toxicology report shows Bobby Brown, Jr. died from an overdose of cocaine, fentanyl and alcohol.
The 28-year-old son of R&B singer Bobby Brown and Kim Ward was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home on November 18, 2020.
Illegal narcotics in Bobby Jr.’s system prompted his parents to demand a criminal investigation into how Bobby Jr. obtained the drugs.
Specific details about the case have not been released, but according to TMZ, authorities became involved after learning certain drug dealers are known to cut with powerful painkiller fentanyl to get users hooked.
Bobby, Jr. is the second child of the former New Edition singer to die from a drug overdose.
Brown also lost his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, in July, 2015, six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta, Georgia home.
Bobbi Kristina also had toxic levels of alcohol and cocaine in her system.
Bobbi Kristina’s mother, Brown’s ex-wife Whitney Houston, died from accidental drowning following a drug overdose in February 2012.
