Brittany Murphy's Cause of Death Inquiry Gets Really Weird

When Brittany Murphy died in December 2009 at 32, her causes of death were listed as pneumonia and anemia, along with "multiple drug intoxication."

Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti, sued the Los Angeles Coroner's Office and the LAPD to obtain further toxicology testing, according to The Hollywood Reporter (via Huffington Post).

Though the lawsuit was dismissed, Bertolotti was able to get samples of his daughter's hair, blood and tissues for testing, done at the Carlson Company in Colorado, according to the Examiner.

Results revealed 10 heavy metals in Murphy's system at the time of her death, which are above the "high" level set by the World Health Organization.

"Since the autopsy narrative recorded a number of symptoms synonymous with poisoning, I requested testing for heavy metals/toxins," Bertolotti wrote to the Huffington Post today. "My suspicions were confirmed. Ten heavy metals were found in abnormally high quantities (as much as 9 times over the 'high' limit designated by the World Health Organization). These types of heavy metals/toxic elements are commonly found in rat poison, pesticides, insecticides, etc. Since neither Brittany nor Simon would have willingly consumed any such substances, the lab concluded that they may have been introduced by a third party with criminal intent."

Murphy's husband, Simon Monjack, died about five months after her, also from causes related to "pneumonia and anemia."

    No one had anything to gain from murdering Murphy and Monjack besides the family... so... impurity of supply? Who knows. Drugs always lead to bad things
