Celeb Tributes Pour in for Brittany as More Details Emerge

Details are emerging about Brittany Murphy's death as the coroner prepares to carry out an autopsy "as soon as possible". Brittany had been suffering from flu like symptoms and was taking prescription medication to ease them in the days before her death.

"The sudden loss of our beloved Brittany is a terrible tragedy. She was our daughter, our wife, our love and a shining star. We ask you to respect our privacy at this time."
