Latest lab report states that 'Brittany Murphy' was most likely poisoned.
If you believe a lot of the recent stories surrounding Brittany Murphy's death, there is more than a celebrity addict. In 2009, 32 year old Brittany Murphy and her 40 year old husband, Simon Monjack died about five months apart from each other. Murphy was officially declared death by “multiple drug intoxication, pneumonia and iron deficiency anemia,” he of pneumonia and anemia.
Last year, Brittany Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti, sued the LA Police and Coroner's Office in order to get more toxicology reports. The lawsuit was dismissed but he was able to obtain hair, blood, and tissue samples, that allowed him to get them tested independently. He sent the samples to Carlson Company in Colorado and the results as the tests, demonstrate the possibility that she was poisoned.
“Since the autopsy narrative recorded a number of symptoms synonymous with poisoning, I requested testing for heavy metals/toxins,” Bertolotti wrote in an email to The Huffington Post Monday. “My suspicions were confirmed. Ten heavy metals were found in abnormally high quantities (as much as 9 times over the ‘high’ limit designated by the World Health Organization). These types of heavy metals/toxic elements are commonly found in rat poison, pesticides, insecticides, etc. Since neither Brittany nor Simon would have willingly consumed any such substances, the lab concluded that they may have been introduced by a third party with criminal intent.”
A woman named Julia Davis concurs Bertolotti’s sentiment in a widely-cited piece for Examiner
Heavy metals can be commonly found in rodenticides (chemicals that kill mice or rats) and insecticides. Symptoms of acute heavy metal poisoning in humans can include headache, dizziness, gastrointestinal, neurological, respiratory, or dermal symptoms such as abdominal cramps, tremors, tachycardia, sweating, disorientation, coughing, wheezing, congestion, and pneumonia. Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack exhibited all of these symptoms prior to their untimely deaths. The levels of heavy metals detected in Brittany Murphy’s hair were from 2 to over 9 times higher than the levels set as “high” by The World Health Organization.
It’s hard to say whether Davis is not biased, as she’s the writer of a new documentary, Top Priority: The Terror Within
, which alleges that Brittany Murphy and her husband were murdered by the Department of Homeland Security as part of a conspiracy to discredit Davis.
The film reveals that:
‘Britt and her husband Simon didn’t deserve to be terrorized by the Department of Homeland Security for standing up to defend me,’ says Davis.
- Murphy and Monjack were on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) watch list;
- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) were trying to kick her screenwriter husband out of the country;
- Monjack was arrested over an expired visa – a ruthless tactic to intimidate Murphy after she spoke out in defence of Julia Davis, a former Customs and Border Protection agent.
So the theory is that the government murdered Brittany Murphy and her husband because they defended this whistleblower, Julia Davis? While she is cleared of all charges seems a little out of the ordinary.
The LA County Coroner responded to The Huffington Post’s request for comment with an email Monday evening.
“The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has no plans to reopen our inquiry into the deaths. We stand by our original reports,” Chief Coroner Investigator Craig R. Harvey said. “We have not been presented any [third> party lab test results for analysis, so we are unable to comment on publicized reports of private lab tests.” [HuffPo]
The new lab reports sound interesting, but we should probably wait until someone who’s not trying to produce a documentary before we rush to conclusions.
