Report: Brittany Murphy Died of Natural Causes

December 21, 2009

The Associated Press is reporting that a Los Angeles County coroner has ruled that actress Brittany Murphy died of natural causes.

From the Associated Press:

Murphy, 32, collapsed in the shower of the West Hollywood home she shared with her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, on Sunday and was pronounced dead two hours later at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Her death “appears to be natural,” assistant chief coroner Ed Winter said.

Cops are investigating the “Clueless” starlet’s sudden death. An autopsy is planned for today or Tuesday reportedly against the wishes of Murphy’s hubby, Monjack, who told hospital staff he didn’t want one performed, according to TMZ.

The Hollywood stunner’s weight loss in recent years sparked rumors of eating disorder or drug use, which she denied. She reportedly suffered from flu-like symptoms and was vomiting in the hours before her death, according to TMZ.com. Meanwhile, friends and family showed an outpouring of support for the young starlet.
