A reinvestigation into the death of Brittany Murphy is ‘not ruled out’


It's hard to believe that it has been almost seven years since the tragic passing of actress Brittany Murphy in her Beverly Hills home at the age of just 32. 

Though the death was determined to have been from 'natural causes' at the time, there has been much speculation into the tragic case and its strange circumstances ever since. 

The actress' death was believed to have been a combination of pneumonia and anaemia, as well as the accidental mixing of prescription drugs in her system. 

But according to a recent investigation undertaken by E! News, there are many authorities close to the case who still have questions. 

"I had questions initially and those questions remain," said a respected pathologist Dr Cyril Wecht to the news site. 

Brittany's husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack, also died of the exact same issues of wife just five months after her death in their home adding even more suspicion to the case. 

Brittany's mother Sharon has since claimed both deaths were caused by toxic moulds in their house while her father, Angelo Bertolotti, has speculated that a toxicology report included evidence of deliberate poisoning. 

While the circumstances around the death have yet to be satisfactorily cleared up, authorities have revealed that the case would reopen if the evidence presented itself. 

"We would have to have direct evidence,"  L.A. County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter. 

"In all honesty, it would take something like a confession. Something connecting somebody with it.

"A reexamination could happen also if law enforcement contacted us. Or we can reopen the case if there is substantial evidence."
