File this one under really strange. Star Brittany Murphy passed away back in 2009. Several months later in 2010 her husband, Simon Monjack, died as well. Both causes of death were listed as natural – pneumonia and anemia. Now that doesn’t seem to be the case.
According to The Wrap, Brittany Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, long suspected that she and her husband died not of natural causes, but of poisoning by someone out to kill them. Bertolotti sued to gain access to her hair samples and hired a private lab, the Carlson Company, to look for signs of poisoning.
“It’s a bona fide report,” the lab’s general manager, Denny Seilheimer, told the site. “It was our client’s prerogative to release the report. That’s all I can tell you.” The lab found evidence she was poisoned — probably by “a third party perpetrator with likely criminal intent,” according to the report, which was authorized by Seilheimer. The report found that Murphy’s body had dramatically elevated levels of aluminum, manganese, barium, and other metals.
LAPD spokesman Officer Cleon Joseph said it would be up to the coroner’s office whether to take further action. “Whatever the findings, if there was something to report, they would report it to us,” he said.
Murphy starred in several horror films during her short career including Cherry Falls, Deadline, and Sin City.
