Shocked and Saddened: A follow-up on Brittany Murphy’s Death

Watched her films and loved her for that sunshine spunk she has all lit up on her face. From Sidewalks of New York, to Just Married, to Uptown Girls, to Little Black Book,–she was spectacular. I love her so much that hearing about her sudden death was indeed a shock. I was shocked and saddened to hear Brittany Murphy is dead.

December 20, 2009—Brittany Murphy was found unconscious in her home in the hills above West Hollywood, Los Angeles California. It was her mother who had seen her in the bathroom; at 8am a call was made to 911 to report of the incident.

Media had search for people who can give statements regarding the actress’ death. According to neighbors, they have seen the paramedics stay at the residence for an hour until they have seen them take someone pale outside the stretcher wearing a mask. They didn’t even know that that was Murphy already. They just heard later on that she died of a heart attack.

Recent reports say that Murphy may have indeed died a natural cause; however the heart attack issue is yet to be confirmed.  Background check regarding the real cause is still ongoing by the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office who at present is still looking at her medical records. Announcement regarding the result may still take weeks since they still have to conduct a toxicology test to check any presence of alcohol or drugs.

This Atlanta born gal has starred in many acclaimed films one of which, The White Hotel, where she met her husband, British director and writer Simon Monjack (it was on 2007 when she married him). Her acting career started at the age 14 starring the series Drexel’s Class. She even had a single teaming up with DJ Paul Oakfold: Faster Kill Pussycat, which became a No.1, hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play.  Just last month, there was news regarding her getting fired on the movie she was working on in Puerto Rico. According her representative, this was clearly due to creative differences since Murphy had never been fired before. Murphy felt mutual over the production and had settled to parting ways.

At present the family wished to thank all those who supported their daughter. They have but one request and that is to keep things in private. Many of today’s stars even started to express their condolences on Twiter, one of which is Murphy’s co star in Just Married: Ashton Kutcher tweeted “2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany’s family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon … see you on the other side kid.”

The news on Brittany Murphy’s death definitely can find a person shocked in disbelief. She died at the age of 32; her death proclaimed at around 10:04 am at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She will definitely be gravely missed….
