Even though the doctors feel there’s nothing more to be done, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family isn’t ready to give up hope, CBS reported today, as they are holding a “Shining a Light for Healing” prayer vigil.
“There has been no change” in her condition,” a Brown family member said. “We are hoping that God will see fit to perform a miracle in her, so that he will get the glory. Everyone is praying; we have laid hands on Krissi and have been praying for a miracle. I don’t know why that is so controversial. If it were your child, you would do the same thing. Where there is life, there is hope.”
The miracle prayer vigil is being planned for Monday night and will take place at the Amphitheater at Riverdale Town Center in Riverdale, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta.
Bobbi Kristina is still in a coma with no signs of potential recovery. As we reported last week, Bobby Brown is refusing to take his daughter off life support due to his religion and belief that God will deliver a miracle. These feeling have not been shared by her doctors, who have advised that she will not improve and stopping life support is the most appropriate choice. Family members have talked to him about this, but as of this morning, he is remaining steadfast to his beliefs.
Police in the Atlanta area have reportedly begun a criminal investigation in the case for possible foul play as injuries on Brown’s body can’t be explained. The nature of the injuries are still unknown, but TMZ reports that multiple sources, including many family members, have said there is a history of violence between Bobbi Kristina and boyfriend Nick Gordon. This information, along with the injuries are leading authorities to target Gordon at the moment.
Mutual friend, Max Lomas, who discovered Bobbi Kristina facedown in a bathtub full of water, stated that he arrived at their home around 9 a.m. ET last Saturday. Gordon was around, but when asked about Bobbi Kristina, he told Lomas that she was in the bedroom. It wasn’t until an hour later that the body was discovered when a cable serviceman needed access to the bedroom so no one knows exactly how long she was without oxygen. TMZ also reports that Lomas claimed Gordon allegedly cleaned up their home along with removing blood stains.
Law enforcement sources are claiming that Lomas’ attorney insisted on immunity before his client spoke to the police, but as of Friday, there has been no immunity given to him. He has not spoken to the police any further while Gordon has also retained legal services.
This sad incident comes less two days away before the third anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death on Feb. 11, at the Beverly Hilton just hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammys bash.
