Was Brittany Murphy Murdered In Her Hollywood Hills Mansion?

The Brittany Murphy death conspiracy is one of the wildest rabbit holes out there. Did this 32-year-old Hollywood Star die of an accident or was she murdered?


On December 20, 2009 Brittany Murphy’s mother, Sharon, and her husband, Simon, discover the 32-year-old actress on her bathroom floor struggling to breathe. The 911 call details Brittany’s last breaths as we hear Simon in the background performing chest compressions on his unconscience wife.

Paramedics rushed Brittany to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and they pronounced her dead on arrival; doctors officially marking her time of death at 10:05am. According to her mother Sharon, her daughter’s last words were “Mommy, I can’t catch my breath, help me, help me, I’m dying.”

The official autopsy report (here) states that Brittany Murphy died of pneumonia, an iron deficiency, and the interaction of multiple prescription drugs found in her system. Brittany developed symptoms of pneumonia after a trip to Puerto Rico with her husband and mother to appear in the film The Caller which they kicked her off just one day on the set.

Ed Winter, the LA medical examiner known as the “Face of Hollywood Death”, stated that Brittany’s death was accidental, although there is heavy doubts by conspiracy theorist and Brittany’s fan base that her death was a murder.

The first big theory that Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack’s shady business dealings got the couple killed. Simon Monjack died 5 months later in the same house and same bathroom. One man that some believe to have something to do with the deaths is Arturo Globenfeldt, which you can see from his blog here.

Perhaps the most wild conspiracy theory involves Julia Davis and her husband BJ Davis and their unbelievable government coverup story.

Finally, there is the theory that the mother, Sharon Murphy, killed her own daughter before killing Simon 5 months later. Brittany’s husband seemed close to his mother-in-law. Simon demanded that the coroner not perform an autopsy on Brittany. Larry King interviewed Simon and Sharon, where they claimed this decision was not a religious one, but the couple didn’t want Sharon’s daughter cut up.

Brittany’s father, who according to Sharon only wanted to be a part of her life after finding success in acting, pushed the ‘poisoning theory’ by having some of his daughter’s hair tested at a 3rd party testing lab. The test was done at the Carlson Company and apparently the results show that Brittany Murphy was definitely poisoned. What do you guys think?

  • Have you ever watched “Autopsy: The Final Hours Of Brittany Murphy” on amazon prime? The whole series is very good but they did one for Brittany.

    • No I haven’t seen that one. I’ll be honest, I really don’t buy the conspiracy theory on this case. I did the episode and sort of played that part up, but honestly I think it was just an accidental death. Just my opinion though.
