Bobbi Kristina

Medical Examiner Keeps Cause of Death Secret

Criminal Investigation Looms

breaking news

0926-bobbi-kristina-getty-01Bobbi Kristina's cause of death is now known, but no one's talking, because police are still on the hunt for evidence that could lead to a homicide prosecution.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner just said it knows exactly what killed Whitney Houston's daughter, but they can't reveal it to the public because a judge ordered the findings sealed.

The M.E. did say the Fulton County D.A. and the Roswell P.D. have been clued in.

It's not hard to read between the lines. Authorities don't want the findings to interfere with their investigation ... to give persons of interests and suspects a road map preventing them from making incriminating statements. The judge's order underscores that the criminal investigation is active.

As we reported, cops have been looking at Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, almost from the beginning.

Yogi Berra

Yankees Legend Dies at 90

breaking news

0922-yogi-berra-GETTY-01Yogi Berra, a New York Yankees legend and one of the most beloved American sports stars in history, died Tuesday.

Yogi was an All-Star catcher for the Yankees from 1946 to 1963, and also played one year with the Mets before retiring as a player in 1965. He played in the Bronx alongside the likes of Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle ... earning a record TEN World Series rings.

Yogi also caught pitcher Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

He was just as famous for his quirky sayings, known as "Yogi-isms," as he was his Hall of Fame baseball career. Some of the best include:

- "Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."

- "It gets late early out there."

- "If you come to a fork in the road, take it."

- "It's like deja vu all over again."

Miller played off Yogi's idioms for a popular 1987 beer commercial that happened to co-star a young Jason Alexander -- who, coincidentally, worked for the Yankees years later on "Seinfeld."

Yogi, whose birth name was Lawrence Peter, served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, and participated in the D-Day invasion. He started playing pro baseball when he got out of the service.

The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center in NJ announced his death. Yogi was 90.

Ex-Laker Ronny Turiaf says the death of Moses Malone at only 60-years-old ... hit very close to home for him ... since he too has dealt with life-threatening heart issues.

Turns out he was right. We broke the story ... the Medical Examiner says Malone died from heart disease.

On a lighter note -- former NBA star John Salley reminisced about ballin' against the "Chairman of the Boards."
