Brittany Murphy's Death Explored in New Documentary Special

Brittany Murphy's Death Explored in New Documentary Special

A new documentary special is exploring the death of actress Brittany Murphy and the cause of her death at the age of 32.

The Investigation Discovery network’s new ID Mystery special questions if Brittany‘s husband Simon Monjack had something to do with her death.

After Brittany passed away in 2009, the Los Angeles County coroner said that her death was an “accident caused by a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and ‘multiple drug intoxication.’” Months later, Simon died from acute pneumonia and severe anemia.

The documentary features the final interview with Brittany‘s father Angelo Bertolotti, who passed away last year. In his interview, he “casts doubt on the conclusion that she died of natural causes and reveals bizarre allegations against other family members.”

Then downfall of Brittany‘s career is also explored in the documentary. After having big hits in the early 2000s with 8 Mile, Just Married, and Uptown Girls, she was only offered low budget roles in the years before her death. People close to her associated this with the introduction of Simon into her life.

“Many connect Brittany‘s diminished career to a change in her life,” the show’s narrator stated in the special.

You can watch the full special for free on ID’s website. Check out the trailer below!

The 10-year anniversary of Brittany‘s death was last year and one of her former co-stars paid tribute to her on that day.
