Was Brittany Murphy Poisoned?

Brittany Murphy died in 2009 at an incredibly young 32 years of age, and her creepo husband, Simon Monjack, went five months after her. Oddly, they both were said to have died from complications of the same illness: pneumonia and anemia. It was a weird ass story and it isn’t over yet. While the story never seemed very clear-cut to me (the incidence of prescription and over-the-counter medications in her bloodstream, the mother moving in with Monjack after Brittany died  and then trying to sell her belongings – including an old passport – at an auction, etc.), now some lab reports from hair tested by Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti.

“Ten (10) of the heavy metals evaluated were detected at levels higher that the WHO [The World Health Organization] high levels. Testing the hair strand sample identified as back of the head we have detected ten (10) heavy metals at levels above the WHO high levels recommendation.

“If we were to eliminate the possibility of a simultaneous accidental heavy metals exposure to the sample donor then the only logical explanation would be an exposure to these metals (toxins) administered by a third party perpetrator with likely criminal intent.”

So wait, she was poisoned with rat poison? That must mean Monjack was too, which must mean a third party was involved, which… sorta points to Brittany’s mother, Sharon. But then, that doesn’t make much sense because she presumably would have fought the father getting this lab test, knowing that substances would show up in them? Who knows?

What do you think happened here? Do you think we’ll ever find out?
