Brittany Murphy – Simon Monjack possible cause of death: mold

This parasitic fungus has the ability to attack the breathing system.

The American actress Brittany Murphy and her husband, Simon Monjack, died within five months of each other, and both deaths were initially put into pneumonia.

The two deaths are now investigated by the Department of Public Health in Los Angeles, and mold is considered a relevant factor for the respiratory health systems of the two artists.

The presence of mold in the West Hollywood Hills residence of the couple was seen by police officers since December 2009, when they were investigating the circumstances of death of actress Brittany Murphy, but at that time, it was considered “a factor”.

Sharon Murphy, the mother of Brittany Murphy, allowed U.S. investigators to examine again the victims residence. Monjack Simon’s mother decided to leave Europe and move back in the United States to be present while investigation occurs.

Recently, Roger Neal, Simon Monjack’s press officer, confirmed that Simon needed a bypass intervention, but it was postponed because he was – professionally – too busy.

Brittany Murphy, known for her roles in “Clueless” and “8 Mile”, has died at the age of 32 following a cardiac arrest on December 20, 2009. She was discovered in the bathroom of her residence in Hollywood Hills.

According to forensic experts, in her blood was discovered a combination of medicines with and without prescription. The doctors didn’t detect any drugs in Brittany’s bloodstream.

Her husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack has been found dead in his home in LA, five months after her death.

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

Brittany Murphy : a star who hasn’t shine enough.RIP 1977-2009

Brittany Murphy’s death is no hoax. She died from a cardiac arrest on Sunday morning. She was only 32 years old. For months there have been rumors of celebrity death that usually start on Sundays. Unfortunately, this rumor came true for actress Brittany Murphy.
Usually, when someone who is young and in good health goes into cardiac arrest, it is because of some event or some foreign substance that enters the body and gets into the bloodstream. For example, a bullet can cause cardiac arrest – and a lot of bleeding. A traumatic event can cause a heart attack and be fatal. And, yes, drugs taken improperly can also result in cardiac arrest.We may never know just what caused Brittany Murphy to go into cardiac arrest, nor do we need to know. She is, sadly, dead!

It’s always tragic when someone so young dies, whether it be at home or on a battlefield thousands of miles away. It’s even more tragic if you ultimately learn that the death could have been prevented – either by a medical screening or an Act of Congress to stop all pointless and losing wars, like the two we are currently involved in now.
