Brittany Murphy died from rat poisoning?

Clueless actress Brittany Murphy passed away after suffering an apparent heart attack in December of 2009 after being sick with pneumonia. Only five months later, her husband Simon Monjack died of the same causes. Although the autopsy ruled the cause of death to be pneumonia with secondary causes of anemia and elevated levels of legal drugs, Brittany’s parents Sharon Murphy and Angelo Bertolotti never believed that was the case. Sharon believed mold in their house was the cause, but a new report reveals something even worse. The report shows that heavy metals found in Brittany’s hair shows signs that she ingested rat poisoning. Before they died, both Brittany and her husband were suffering from the same symptoms of headaches, dizziness, and disorientation which are common symptoms once one has ingested rat poisoning. The next part of the report suggests that the poisoning could have been intentional: “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.” ~Brie Davis

    I personally always thought it was a little weird that she and Simon, both seemingly healthy adults, passed away from pneumonia within months of each other. I’m kind of surprised that it took someone this long to ascertain otherwise. I truly believe Brittany was taken from us way too early- I thought that she was a phenomenal actress.

    Strange story, who got the money? To get the cash, whoever would have done this needed the husband gone as well. It’s just really stupid to get rid of both of them in the same manner. If that’s what really happened.

    So sad and when you are so young and under strange circumstances. Who gets the money is the perpetrator.

    Wasn’t it her mother who inherited? She lived with them, didn’t she?
