The 28-year-old artist was found unresponsive in his bedroom by his girlfriend. She called paramedics, who pronounced him dead. No foul play is suspected.
An autopsy report released on Monday referred to his death as an accident.
The singer had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, the report said.
The night before his death, he had consumed tequila and cocaine, and “snorted” the painkiller Percocet, a witness told police.
The family said Brown Jr. was experiencing flu-like symptoms at the time, but had not been tested for Covid-19.

Her death comes eight years after her stepmother Whitney Houston accidentally drowned in a bathtub, and five years after the death of her 22-year-old sister, Bobbi Kristina in similar circumstances.
