Bobbi K's condition may speed up probe

Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has deteriorated and she's been moved to hospice care, her aunt, Pat Houston, announced Wednesday.

Houston's spokeswoman emailed a statement to reporters, saying the 22-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston, who's been unconscious after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Roswell, Ga., home earlier this year, is "in God's hands now."

"Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate. As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now. "

It was signed by Pat Houston, who is married to the brother of Bobbi Kristina's late mother, singer Whitney Houston, and is the executor of Whitney's estate.

When a patient is moved to a hospice, it's usually to provide specialized care for the final stages of a terminal illness, with the goal of providing comfort and pain-control medication.

Update: Police in Roswell say they've turned over their investigative file in the case to Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard to determine whether any charges will be filed. Howard said Thursday in a statement to the Associated Press that his office will be "reviewing the case with greater interest" in light of new circumstances regarding her health.

In an eerie echo of Whitney Houston's 2012 bathtub death in a Beverly Hills hotel, Bobbi Kristina was found face down in a tub in her townhouse, on Jan. 31.

It is still not clear what happened to her or why. Roswell police investigated but have not announced their findings nor brought charges against anyone.

Despite months of treatment in two Atlanta hospitals and a rehab facility, including being placed in an induced coma, she has never regained consciousness.

Her father, Bobby Brown, and members of his family have said at various times that she was awake or that she was getting better. Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, with whom she shared her home, has begged to see her and been refused by her family.

Now, the conservator appointed to look after her assets is suing him in civil court, alleging he assaulted her and stole money from her.

Her grandmother, gospel great Cissy Houston, has been candid from the beginning about her condition not improving. She said in April that doctors told her Bobbi Kristina suffered "global and irreversible brain damage" and that she remained unresponsive.

Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend Nick Gordon could be investigated for murder, report says
If Bobbi Kristina Brown dies, her boyfriend Nick Gordon could be investigated for murder, TMZ reports.

The Fulton County District Attorney told the gossip site: "In view of the new circumstances regarding the health status of Bobbi Kristina Brown, we will be reviewing the case with greater interest."

A source told FOX411 "The DA had assured [the family] that they have been investigating and will certainly step up efforts to present case to grand jury now that [Bobbi] is expected to pass anytime now. Nick Gordon is their primary -- if not only-- target." 

TMZ reported that shortly after Brown was found unconscious in a bathtub on Jan 31, prosecutors began investigating Gordon because bruising was found on the 22-year-old’s body.

Brown’s aunt Pat Houston told the press on Wednesday that her niece was in hospice care. A source told FOX411 that the family had made the decision to "unhook everything, no medication, anything."

The source continued, "It is literally anytime now before she's pronounced dead, unfortunately."

Pat Houston’s solemn statement added, “She is in God's hands now."

On Wednesday a court-appointed representative for Brown filed a lawsuit against Gordon, claiming he took money from her and abused her physically and emotionally.

Gordon is accused of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unjust enrichment and conversion in the suit, which seeks $10 million in damages.

The Fulton County DA did not immediately return FOX411’s request for comment.

Brown has been in various hospitals since she was discovered in her home unconscious on Jan. 31 by Gordon and a friend. She is the daughter of singer Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, who died after drowning in a bathtub.
