The investigations into the death of Brittany Murphy and her husband Simon Monjack has taken a new path. Britney passed away from what was believed at the time to be pneumonia complicated by her abuse of prescription drugs and her husband passed away five month later of the same cause. They both died in the same house.
Apparently the Los Angeles Department of Public Health is looking into the matter because they think mold may have actually killed them both. Because both of them had pneumonia and because mold attacks the respiratory system they believe mold may have been the contributing factor in their death. Brittany’s mother Sharon is allowing investigators to examine their home in West Hollywood.
