Brittany Murphy's Husband Found Dead

Just five months after actress Brittany Murphy tragically passed away at age 32, her husband Simon Monjack has been found dead in the couple's Hollywood home. He was 39.

The Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed receiving a 911 call seeking medical aid just before 9:30 p.m. The cause of Monjack's death was not immediately known, but local newscasts are reporting that the screenwriter may have had a heart attack. Detectives are still investigating.

In addition to marrying Murphy, who died of cardiac arrest in their home on Dec. 20, Monjack was most known for writing the 2006 Andy Warhol biopic Factory Gir, which starred Sienna Miller.

Murphy's death was said to be the result of a combination of pneumonia, anemia and prescription drugs, many of which were prescribed to Monjack.
