Brittany Murphy’s autopsy report results are in but the cause of death is still unknown. The Coroner ruled that Brittany died from ‘natural causes’, but to many, this term can be misleading. Natural causes refers to foul play or criminal activity, by stating that she died of natural causes, we understand that Brittany did not die from a gunshot wound, or visible trauma to the body. That doens’t mean, however, that a drug overdose may not be involved.
Elvis Presley died from natural causes but it was determined that he had a vast drug cocktail that contributed to his cardiac arrest. The remainder of testing will be for the purpose of determining the cause of death and finding out why Brittany Murphy suffered a cardiac arrest at 32 years old.
There are many factors that may have contributed to the cardiac arrest. It will take approximately 4-6 weeks before testing is complete and the cause of death will be confirmed.
