Full Story of Brittany Murphy’s death
According to Investigator Blacklock’s notes, Brittany Murphy had been complaining of shortness of breath and severe abdominal pain for 7 to 10 days prior to her death. Brittany Murphy went into the bathroom at around 7:30 AM Sunday and shut the door.
A half hour later Brittany’s mother, Sharon Murphy, went to check on her daughter, opened the bathroom door and discovered Brittany lying on the floor unresponsive. Sharon yelled for help. Brittany’s husband, Simon Monjack, who was in bed, heard the screams and ran to the bathroom. Sharon called 911 and Simon attempted to revive Brittany by placing her in the shower and running the water.
Brittany Murphy remained unresponsive and purged her stomach contents prior to the arrival of the paramedics.
When the paramedics arrived, Brittany was without signs of life.
Paramedics moved Brittany from the bathroom to the master bedroom, where they found various prescription drugs. A check of the nightstands revealed large amounts of prescription medication in the decedent’s name. Also noted were numerous empty prescription medication bottles in the decedent’s husband’s name, the decedent’s mother’s name and unidentified third party names.
