She posted a photo of her niece when she was a baby, sitting on a high chair and enjoying cake. In the photo, Lauren looks beautiful. And her grieved aunt can’t forget it, and captioned the post saying:
“…I waited till the end of my day because I didn’t want to post this. I’m still in disbelief that It is real. A whole 365 days and nights later…”
Cause of Lauren’s sad demise
Lauren was Tamar’s older brother, Michael Braxton’s daughter. Michael is a singer and songwriter. Lauren passed away on 29 April 2019 at the young age of 24 in Maryland. Initially, it was believed that she died of a heart condition. Later, Maryland’s office of the chief medical examiner revealed that it was due to heroin overdose and fentanyl intoxication.
The young girl was discovered after a call was made to 911. But once help arrived, her body did not respond to any standard first aid procedures.
Unfortunately, Tamar was unable to attend her beloved niece’s funeral.
