Hey guys, guess what? Young actresses in Hollywood don’t normally just up and have a heart attack unless they’ve been chugging down a drug Slurpee. Yeah, shocking, right? I didn’t want to start speculating right away about what might have caused Brittany Murphy’s untimely death, but the Los Angeles Coroner’s office has released some notes about a large number of prescription medications in her room. Says Us Weekly,
According to the notes (obtained by TMZ.com), the medications included Topamax (anti-seizure meds also to prevent migraines), Methylprednisolone (anti-inflammatory), Fluoxetine (depression med), Klonopin (anxiety med), Carbamazepine (treats Diabetic symptoms and is also a bipolar med), Ativan (anxiety med), Vicoprofen (pain reliever), Propranolol (hypertension, used to prevent heart attacks), Biaxin (antibiotic), Hydrocodone (pain med) and miscellaneous vitamins.
The notes state Murphy “had been complaining of shortness of breath and severe abdominal pain” for 7 to 10 days prior to her death.
Around 7:30 a.m. Sunday, she went into the bathroom of her Hollywood Hills home and shut the door, according to the notes.
A half hour later Murphy’s mother, Sharon, went to check on her daughter, opened the bathroom door and “discovered the decedent lying on the floor unresponsive,” the notes read.
According to the notes, Sharon yelled for help. Murphy’s husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, who was in bed, ran to the bathroom.
The notes reveal that Sharon called 911 and Monjack “attempted to revive the decedent by placing her in the shower and running the water.” But Murphy “remained unresponsive and purged her stomach contents prior to the arrival of the paramedics,” according to the notes.
When the paramedics arrived, Murphy was “without signs of life.” Paramedics then moved her from the bathroom to the master bedroom, where they found the prescription drugs.
“A check of the nightstands revealed large amounts of prescription medication in the decedent’s name. Also noted were numerous empty prescription medication bottles in the decedent’s husband’s name, the decedent’s mother’s name and unidentified third party names,” the notes read.
According to the notes, “No alcohol containers, paraphernalia or illegal drugs were discovered.”
The notes state that the night before her death Murphy “had consumed some noodles, leftover Thai food, Gatorade, water and tea with lemon.”
So there you have it. I don’t care if they haven’t released an official cause of death, I think the fact that she had a bunch of prescription meds, some not even her own, is pretty damn telling. It’s like when I eat a whole tub of BonBons. You might not have seen me stuff them down my face, but the brown shit smeared all over my face is the big tip-off. Plus the fact that I weigh 300 pounds.
