…and it is and isn’t what you’d think. Brittany Murphy died of pneumonia, iron deficiency and prescription drug intoxication. Her death has officially been ruled accidental. Here’s more info from TheWrap:
Toxoicology reports detailing the exact nature of the drugs found in Murphy’s system have still not been released, but results from an autopsy were announced on Thursday.
Craig R. Harvey, the coroner’s department chief investigator, told TheWrap that “a list of all the specific drugs” found in Murphy’s system “will be released when the full report is issued in two weeks.” Nor would Harvey elaborate on the nature of the “drug intake” that is listed as how Murphy’s “injury” occured.
These results put the meth/cocaine rumors that Brittany battled for the last several years to rest, but continues to support the notion that there are no drugs more dangerous than the kinds the doctors are giving out these days. Between Heath Ledger, DJ AM and now Brittany, we’ve seen many celebrities leave us due, at least in part, to their use of prescription drugs. These deaths have to serve as a warning to not just all of us, but specifically celebrities who have no problem getting a doctor to write them up a prescription for anything they want. I’m talking to you, Lohan.
