Brittany Murphy's Cause of Death Revealed

Brittany Murphy's Cause of Death Revealed

Brittany Murphy died from pneumonia and “iron deficiency anemia” as well as multiple drug intoxication, the Los Angeles County Coroner reported.

The 32-year-old Clueless star’s death was ruled accidental, and TMZ reports that the drugs found in her system were for cramps and over-the-counter medicine, including cough syrup.

Underlying problems of pneumonia and iron deficiency were to blame in what’s believed to have been a preventable death.

R.I.P. Brittany. =/

The ironic part is that the druggie, Casey Johnson died of natural causes. And this chick, whose husband said didn’t do drugs, dies of a drug overdose.

Lo, can you read? it says she died of pnemonia and an iron deficiency. the “drugs” in her system were for cramps and probably to treat her pnemonia since it was cough syrup. I wish people would learn to read and stop making such idiotic statements. You make yourself look like a moron.

It sucks that she died and it could’ve been prevented.

Casey Johnson didn’t die of natural causes-she died because she was too busy partying to take her insulin.

@Cristobal: then come over so i can accomplish what you ask of me lol


that’s sad, since it was preventable

such a talented girl

she will be missed

@Kate Bosselin: Funny. Even if I did have a STD, I don’t like girls anyway however I am sure you wouldn’t have a problem finding a guy to dive into that vortex you call a ******.

I hope her husband doens’t milk her death

A very stupid death, so preventable !

SOOO SAD!!! I Just loved her acting!!!!!

BLAME THE HUSBAND... @ 02/04/2010 at 2:44 pm

So lets have Britney’s husband stand trial for manslaughter too.. since
he did not take her to the hospital when he knew she was way too
ill.. This could of been prevented if he took her to the hospital.. instead
he would rather blame a studio for her death instead..CHARGE HIM


I feel so sad about death. Most of young women have low iron and and thats because of our monthly. The medicine that they talked about taking most of us take that medicine over the counter for our cramps. I wished she would have talked to her mom more and she would have told her about these things. I dont know about hard drugs but so far I think she should have been in the hospital. Brittney, RIP

it was just her time =(

Kate Bosselin @ 02/04/2010 at 3:37 pm

@Cristobal: what grade are you in? wow.

she should be immortalized in film

Kate Bosselin @ 02/04/2010 at 3:58 pm

there are so many words to describe you; rude, idiotic, foolish, insensitive; etc. etc. but i think the word we should use for you is schadenfreude (taking pleasure in the pain of another person; or the death of another person) which is common in psychopathy. some psychopaths exhibit this behavior. you should have it checked out.
