Autopsy findings in case of Brittany Murphy’s death

Moreover, the autopsy result was released Thursday by the Los Angeles County Coroner, and answered questions that swirled about her sudden and tragic death.

It seemed that Murphy, 32, the star of “8 Mile” and “Clueless”, was suffering from pneumonia when she collapsed and died in the shower of her California home on Dec. 21, 2009, the autopsy showed.

Nevertheless, the autopsy found “multiple drug intoxication” due to medications, said coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey.

Consequently, her death was ruled accidental, he said, and a full autopsy report was expected in two weeks.
