How did Brittany Murphy Die? What is the Causes of his Death?
Brittany Murphy: On December 20, 2009, the world learned that Brittany Murphy, 32, had died unexpectedly after falling in the Hollywood Hills home she lived with her mother, Sharon, and husband, Simon Monjack. Her death was ruled to have been an accident. However, the mystery surrounding Murphy’s death has troubled fans and loved ones for nearly a decade.
Murphy died as a result of pneumonia, anaemia, and “multiple drug intoxication” from both prescription and over-the-counter medications, according to Los Angeles County Coroner Asst. Chief Ed Winter in 2009. Her system, however, contained no illegal narcotics.
In a 2011 Hollywood Reporter article, Murphy’s family friend, Alex Ben Block, wrote about the strangeness of Murphy’s final months. When Block interviewed Simon Monjack shortly after Murphy’s death, Monjack stated that he was convinced his wife had perished from a broken heart.
Murphy’s career was on the downfall due to rumored drug use and lateness, which hindered her from getting jobs. Tabloids also gossiped about a possible struggle with anorexia. But according to Monjack, those rumors were falsehoods. The actress supposedly had a heart murmur, which could have been seriously amplified if drugs entered her system. And she was at a healthy weight when she died.
According to Block, the events leading up to Murphy’s death began with a vacation to San Juan. Monjack and Murphy’s mother both suffered colds while there, and Murphy caught the same sickness after coming home.
In addition to the prescription medication she was taking for pain from a previous automobile accident and seizures triggered by an accident on the set of 8 Mile, Murphy treated her illness with “the antibiotic Biaxin, migraine pills, cough medicine, and an over-the-counter nasal spray,” according to Block.
Her period was what caused her anemia and ultimately weakened her body even more during the bug’s duration. Ten days from when she first fell ill, Murphy could barely breath. Her lungs were filling with fluid and, according to Block, her lips were turning blue from lack of oxygen.
She had only consulted doctors over the phone and had an office visit planned for the day after her death. Monjack and Murphy rarely went to doctors due to the fact that they were afraid that if the paparazzi got wind that either of them were ill, it would only hurt their career prospects more.
Monjack was the one to incite said paranoia regarding paparazzi in Murphy, Block wrote. He was a frequent liar and an ultimate manipulator and used those traits to control Murphy and separate her from the outside world. Monjack supposedly suffered from heart problems and a seizure disorder, yet his autopsy report showed no issues with his heart. This led many to believe he developed Munchausen’s syndrome, and lied about his multiple illnesses.
It was Monjack who eventually insisted on calling 911 the morning Murphy collapsed, but it was too late. There was nothing doctors could do. The coroner stated that if Murphy had been to the doctors early on, her death could have been prevented.
The official cause of death on Murphy’s postmortem report only discloses half of the story. Yes, Murphy was sick with pneumonia, and yes, she was anaemic. But there were more factors at work in her demise than what was written on that piece of paper. Murphy also frequently placed fictitious names on her prescriptions in order to alleviate pharmacists’ concerns about several drugs being prescribed by multiple doctors.
Monjack’s prescription medicine mixture and harmful paranoia explain the other side of Murphy’s terrible narrative. If she had gone to the doctor, she would have lived. If she hadn’t taken this, that, or the other prescription, she would have lived. She would have survived if she had recognized Monjack’s deception.
Murphy, on the other hand, departed us far too soon. The issue of who is truly to blame for Murphy’s murder remains unanswered, and while this is disheartening, we must remember Murphy not for her death, but for the talented, attractive, and giggly girl she was in life.
