Coroner Rules on Brittany Murphy's Death, She Died of Pneumonia with Anaemia and Multiple Drug Intoxication as Secondary Factors

LA Coroner Rules That Brittany Murphy Died of Pneumonia

In December, actress Brittany Murphy tragically died, and yesterday an LA coroner ruled on her cause of death.

Brittany died of pneumonia, and iron-deficiency anaemia and "multiple drug intoxication" from prescription medication were secondary factors in her death, which has been ruled as accidental.

It had previously been rumoured that Brittany was taking prescription medication to ease flu like symptoms. Her mother and her husband Simon Monjack have said that she did not abuse prescription drugs or have an eating disorder.
