Brittany Murphy Died Today

Brittany Murphy Died Today on Hot Topics -- Brittany Murphy died today and the Los Angeles Police Department and Coroner’s Office has launched a full investigation into her death. Though it appears that the young starlet died of natural causes, an autopsy will be performed to determine whether there were underlying factors involved. Drug use, eating addictions or disorders, and even prescription medication can cause cardiac arrest: the condition attributed to causing Brittany Murphy’s death.

The ironic thing is that many celebrity death hoaxes come out on Sundays around the time that news of Brittany's death circulated. However, the news was broadcast on many major media outlets including CNN and Fox News. Once you see reports about celebrity deaths on mainstream media outlets, you can be almost positive that they aren't hoaxes.

Ashton Kutcher and other Hollywood stars are Tweeting about Brittany Murphy's untimely death. She is said to have had movies in post-production that are due out next year. She was such a beautiful young woman and had a very promising career.

Murphy got her first break in the 1995 film "Clueless" co-starring with Alicia Silverstone. Her first acting gig on TV was in 1991 on Murphy Brown. Her first feature film was "Family Prayers" in 1993. She also worked besides powerful celebrities such as Angelina Jolie ("Girl Interrupted") and rapper Eminem ("8 Mile").

There is a lot of speculation about Brittany Murphy's death. There are some reports surfacing that indicate that the actress may have had a history of diabetes. Some speculate that she was on drugs, while others have a feeling she was anorexic.

Only an autopsy will give us concrete evidence as to what happened to the actress. Her husband has expressed that he does not want to have one performed, although it's almost certain that the authorities will have one performed.

Reports say that her mother found her collapsed in the shower. 9-1-1 was called, and emergency rescue workers performed CPR on the actress with no response. Once she arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, she was pronounced dead on arrival.
