A shocking new toxicology report claims actress Brittany Murphy may have been murdered.
Her death on December 20, 2009, was originally attributed to pneumonia and anemia—but according to an independent report, commissioned by her father, Angelo Bertolotti, the actress did not die from natural causes.
The death has always been shrouded in mystery, as Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack, died from the exact same causes just five months after his wife, and now her father believes both were poisoned by a third party.
Bertolotti has been fighting for the legal right to obtain samples of his daughter’s hair, blood and tissue samples for testing, since her sudden death, as he suspected foul play, and it seems his suspicions may have been confirmed.
The Carlson Company found ten heavy metals in Brittany’s system and according to reports in the run up to her death she was displaying all the symptoms of heavy metal poisoning including, headaches, abdominal cramps, dizziness, disorientation, wheezing, coughing, sweating, congestion and pneumonia.
“If we were to eliminate the possibility of a simultaneous accidental heavy metals exposure to the sample donor then the only logical explanation would be an exposure to these metals (toxins) administered by a third party perpetrator with likely criminal intent,” their report claims.
Rat poisons, along with many insecticides, include high levels of heavy metals.
“Vicious rumors, spread by tabloids, unfairly smeared Brittany’s reputation,” Bertolotti tells the Examiner. “My daughter was neither anorexic nor a drug junkie, as they repeatedly implied.
“Brittany and Simon were ridiculed by The Hollywood Reporter, when they complained of being under surveillance in fear for their lives. I will not rest until the truth about these tragic events is told. There will be justice for Brittany.”
