Simon Monjack — Brittany Murphy’s Husband — Found Dead

Only five months after the death of actress Brittany Murphy, her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, 39, was found dead yesterday. The preliminary cause of death was natural causes, with some suggesting that a heart condition might be to blame. Monjack was found by Murphy’s mother Sharon, who also was the first to find her daughter’s lifeless body in December. Murphy’s death was eventually ruled to have been caused by pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication, with some suggesting her passing could have been prevented. Murphy suffered from anemia and, at the time of her death, the LA County coroner said that she should have been getting medical treatment. Early on, suspicion surrounded Monjack — at least among some of Murphy’s friends and in the blogosphere, though he was never considered a suspect by the police — but he maintained that he took good care of Murphy and loved her very much. Whatever you make of their love story, it certainly has ended quite tragically for both of them. [People] Keep reading »
