Brittany Murphy’s Husband Found Dead
Simon Monjack, Brittany Murphy’s 39 year old husband, was found dead by his mother in law late Sunday evening in the home that they shared with Brittany. According to Los Angeles Chief Coroner Ed Winter, it looks like he may have suffered a heart attack.
“He was discovered by Brittany’s mom as being unresponsive” in the Hollywood Hills home at around 9:40 pm on Sunday, says Winter. Brittany Murphy’s mother, Sharon, contacted paramedics, who pronounced him dead.
No signs of foul play or injury to Monjack’s body were reported and although prescriptions were found in the home, overdose is not suspected. An autopsy is planned for Tuesday.
The British producers death comes just 5 short months after the death of his wife, Brittany Murphy, who is best known for her roles in the films “Clueless” and “Girl, Interrupted.”
