Brittany Murphy’s hubby died of possible prescription drug OD

Hollywoodnews.com: The late screenwriter husband, 39, of Brittany Murphy was found with prescription drugs close to his body in the master bedroom. The coroner held off on listing them. No foul play was involved either.

TMZ reports: “There were a number of pill bottles on the nightstand in the bedroom, and some were empty.” The site further explains:

There is, obviously, an eerie similarity to the death of Monjack’s wife, Brittany Murphy, just five months ago. In her case an array of prescription drugs were found on the nightstand of the same bedroom where Monjack died. Many of the drugs on Simon’s nightstand were the same as the ones found after Brittany died.

“There were some prescription drugs found that belonged to Mr. Monjack, and we’ll have an ongoing investigation. Cause of death is pending, and there will be an autopsy after a day or so, and pending toxicology reports, we’ll be releasing the results after we get all those tests back,” said Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter to RadarOnline.

Oddly, Murphy and Monjack had heart problems.

“The preliminary cause of death for Mr. Monjack seems to be natural causes,” Los Angeles Police Department Sergeant Louis Lozano further tells RadarOnline.
