Brittany Murphy's Home Contained Many Prescription Drugs; Star's Final Hours Detailed

by at . Comments

Authorities do not suspect any foul play, but  Brittany Murphywas taking prescription medication and very ill in the hours before she died of a heart attack Sunday.

The actress was taking prescriptions for flu-like symptoms she had been experiencing for several days. Murphy began vomiting early yesterday and became sick.

Rest in Peace Brittany

In the home, various prescriptions were found written for Brittany Murphy, her husband Simon Monjack, and Brittany's mother. The amount of drugs? Not small.

A source said, "There were a lot ... a lot of prescriptions in the house."

Law enforcement sources say Brittany Murphy collapsed in the bathroom and ended up in the shower, having vomited significantly in the immediate vicinity.

Authorities did not find illegal drugs in the house, but Murphy was definitely taking various prescription medications. Did that contribute to her tragic death?

R.I.P. Brittany Murphy (1977-2009).

Sources say her condition and the medication could have triggered Murphy's fatal heart attack, but it's too early to know. The LAPD is currently investigating.

Simon Monjack, who married Brittany in 2007, does not want an autopsy performed, but it's not his decision. The L.A. County Coroner's office will conduct one.

Murphy's body should be autopsied today or tomorrow, but the results of the full battery of toxicology tests they're sure to do may not be available for weeks.

Brittany's mother told paramedics her daughter suffered from diabetes, but sources involved in the case doubt the star's diabetes (type 2) led to her death.

More details to follow as the story develops ...

He doesn't want an autopsy? Fishy!! She was so young, he should want to know what caused her death! Or does he already know?!

Quit hatin on AngeL just because you guys are jealous that she is properly educated. RIP Britt! A young beautiful woman lost too soon. Regardless of how she died this is tragic. If it were your deceased child whose death was accused by speculation of drug abuse...YOU GUYS would understand that death is death and regardless of how her life abruptly ended...she was too too young to leave!!! Shame on all of you who passes judgements!!! You'll be missed babygirl!

Many people who have advanced Anorexia Nervousa (sp) suffer from cardiac arrest. Mixed with prescription drugs... fatal.
But is it necessary to speculate how this beautiful youing woman died? Who cares how she died. The point she did.
However it seems here as well as other blogs people r more interested in runours and bullshit than they r about people dying and the people left behind in pain. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

I sincerely hope the L.A.P.D. overrides Mr. Monjak's objections and performs an autopsy and every type of toxicology test, not that I think she was a drug abuser but because of the person she married. After all, he is referred to as "Con-Jack". Check out his alleged background. And why wouldn't he want to know what the real reason is behind his wife's young demise. Diabetes or not, she was only 32. May she rest in peace.
