Brittany Murphy & Simon Monjack Died from Same Causes!

Talk about a very creepy coincidence. Reports from the L.A. County Coroner show that Brittany Murphy and her husband Simon Monjack died of the same non-drug-related causes: acute pneumonia and severe anemia.

The 39-year-old Monjack was found dead on May 23, in the home he shared with Murphy, just five months after she died at the age of 32.

Though some prescription drugs were found in Monjack's system, none were taken at any level that would cause death.

The actress' mother, Sharon Murphy, says she feels a sense of relief now that the preliminary autopsy reports have hit the press, as she hopes the results will "stop the reckless innuendos that my daughter and son-in-law misused any kind of prescription medications."

"It is with great relief that Simon's preliminary autopsy findings have been released, so the media speculations can stop," Murphy said. "As I was sure of, just like my daughter Brittany, there was no kind of drug overdose."

Monjack's family has requested that another test be conducted before the full autopsy report is released.

Do you think it's strange that Simon Monjack and Brittany Murphy died of the same causes? Chime in below!
