Brittany Murphy had a lot of drugs in her system when she died in December. Her death has been ruled an accident, but several questions about it linger.
The actress obtained a prescription for 120 hydrocodone (Vicodin) pills 11 days before her death, but on the day she died, there were only 11 pills left.
Suspicious, no? Moreover, the L.A. County Coroner's Office cannot locate the doctor who prescribed the pills and are currently on the hunt to find him.
According to the Coroner's report, the medication prescribed specifically to the fallen star were supposed to be taken a maximum of four times a day.
But since 109 of the pills were missing from the bottle when she died, only 44 should have been gone if Brittany had maxed out on the prescription.

Brittany's husband, Simon Monjack, says he is vindicated by the accidental death findings, but officials want to know why so many pills were prescribed at all.
A member of the Coroner's Office recently went to Simon Monjack to assist them in locating the doctor who prescribed the meds, but he was not any help.
Why are we not surprised in the least?
The cause of Murphy's death is listed as "accidental" - the result of pneumonia, prescription and over-the-counter drugs - but is still far from a closed case.
Will the missing doctor be found? And if so, will he ultimately face legal action like the enablers/doctors who treated Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson?
