Death Certificate Issued for Brittany Murphy; Official Cause of Death “Pending Investigation”

Still awaiting toxicology reports, the Los Angeles County Coroner issued the Death Certificate for Brittany Murphy, who passed away in her home last week at age 32.

At the time of her death, various outlets reported the presence of numerous prescription drugs in the home, though foul play and “overdose” were ruled out by officials as related to the cause of death.

However, no final cause of death will be concluded for at least another month while the County Coroner awaits the results of the posthumous toxicology and related lab tests.
