Brittany Murphy was very ill the previous hours of the cardiac arrest that caused her death.
The actress was taking prescription medicaments for flu-like symptoms she had been experiencing for several days. Murphy began vomiting early Sunday morning and told family members she was feeling very sick.
Several prescriptions were found in the home written for Brittany Murphy, husband Simon Monjack, and Brittany’s mom, Sharon.
Law enforcement sources tell Murphy collapsed in the bathroom and somehow ended up in the shower. There was a significant amount of vomit in the immediate area.
Authorities did not find illegal drugs in the house, but Murphy was definitely taking various prescript medicaments.
Her condition and the medicines could have triggered a heart attack, but it’s too early to know. An autopsy will be performed Monday or Tuesday, although Simon Monjack did not want it, but ultimately it’s the Coroner’s call.
Brittany Murphy’s mother told paramedics her daughter suffered from diabetes. TMZ reports it was type 2 diabetes and people involved in the case doubt her condition caused her death.
