Brittany Murphy Might Have Been Poisoned, According To New Lab Results

Brittany Murphy’s already tragic story has just taken a bizarre turn for the worst. Murphy, who allegedly died due to pneumonia, anemia, and drug intoxication in 2009, is now at the center of news reports after her father had additional testing done to see if there were other causes that lead to her death. At the time of her death the LAPD closed the case within an hour after inspecting Murphy’s home.

Years later it was said that because of the cause of death Brittany Murphy was never given a complete forensic autopsy. Now Brittany’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, has secured her hair, blood and tissues for independent testing, and it looks like the results are pretty disturbing. If going by the new lab results, it’s alleged that someone might have poisoned Brittany Murphy.

Murphy’s father reportedly acted on his suspicions and now a new lab report basically points out that there might have been foul play that led to his daughter’s death. The lab report states as follows:

“Ten (10) of the heavy metals evaluated were detected at levels higher that the WHO [The World Health Organization] high levels. Testing the hair strand sample identified as [being from the] “back of the head,” we have detected ten (10) heavy metals at levels above the WHO high levels recommendation. 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.”

The last two sentences, for obvious reasons, were originally bolded for emphasis. Heavy metals that were found are said to be found in the same chemicals that kill mice or rats. If a human is given rodenticides one of the many symptoms does lead to pneumonia.

After Murphy’s death there was speculation that her fiancé, Simon Monjack, was responsible in some way, but all suspicions was dropped after Monjack was found dead in the same room, same bed, and in the same home he shared with Brittany. Currently there’s no word on whether or not additional testing had been done on Monjack.

Bertolotti said of his daughter’s legacy:

“My daughter was neither anorexic nor a drug junkie, as they repeatedly implied. Brittany and Simon were ridiculed by The Hollywood Reporter, when they complained of being under surveillance and in fear for their lives. I will not rest until the truth about these tragic events is told. There will be justice for Brittany.”

What do you think about the new allegations that Brittany Murphy might have been murdered?
