    Brittany Murphy did not die of natural causes, lab report shows

    This is the only article I can find on it. There are pictures of the lab report.

    so it says that the metal levels are higher than they should be and even suggests poisoning

    I find that strange - do labs usually suggest a reason or source for something (as opposed to just giving their findings?)

    is this a reputable lab?

    I've always had my suspicions about her and her husband's death but I wonder if something in the central air system or the house environment could've poisoned them (not necessarily murder)

    Heavy metal poisoning is the accumulation of heavy metals, in toxic amounts, in the soft tissues of the body. Symptoms and physical findings associated with heavy metal poisoning vary according to the metal accumulated. Many of the heavy metals, such as zinc, copper, chromium, iron and manganese, are essential to body function in very small amounts. But, if these metals accumulate in the body in concentrations sufficient to cause poisoning, then serious damage may occur. The heavy metals most commonly associated with poisoning of humans are lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium. Heavy metal poisoning may occur as a result of industrial exposure, air or water pollution, foods, medicines, improperly coated food containers, or the ingestion of lead-based paints.

    Highly Recommended: The first thing we recommend for anyone who is experiencing symptoms of heavy metal poisoning is to have a hair mineral analysis test done. A hair analysis can determine which toxic heavy metals your body has been excreting over time and can give you an excellent baseline before you embark on any type of heavy metal cleansing or detoxification program.

    The hair analysis also tells you which essential minerals your body is needing more of and which important mineral ratios are imbalanced due to heavy metals. It also provides valuable insight into your metaoblism and what dietary changes might be most helpful.

    Looks like they are reputable, from what I dug up.

    What is weird is at the bottom of their site.

    HM – Heavy or Toxic Metals Evaluation

    Heavy metals are natural elements e.g. Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, and many, many, others. Arsenic and its compounds are used as pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and in various Arsenic alloys. Unfortunately, it is also used for poisoning humans and animals. The strength of the dosage, the number of doses, and the time period interval of the dosages can cause a poisoning sickness or sudden death.

    Apparently, the levels of heavy metals found in Murphy’s hair were “from 2 to over 9 times” higher than levels considered “high” by the WHO — which could potentially be from ingesting rodenticides and insecticides. The symptoms of poisoning like this often times include headaches, dizziness, tremors, sweating, disorientation (to name a few), all of which Murphy and Monjack both reportedly were suffering. Additionally, at the time of her death, Murphy’s bedroom was found to contain a “staggering amount” of prescription drugs, including antibiotics.

    From what I remember her autopsy report mentions pneumonia and chronic anemia were contributing factors. Pesticides are usually anticoagulant, which could explain the anemia.

    I've looked up a few things online, apparently there was some conspiracy theory surrounding her death. I don't buy it, but I figured I would leave the article here for people to read.

    Also, her mother was sharing a bed with Brittany's husband after her death.

    she and her husband's deaths always bothered me. Will be interesting to see what comes of this if anything does.

    I am puzzled by the time span since her death and this info being released. This should have been caught well before now I would think. Which makes me think someone has recently hired an independent lab to do further testing that may have not been done prior.

    sorry bad habit, posting before reading the article.

    ah, now all becomes clearer. the findings ARE recent then because the samples were only obtained recently.

    I was happy to accept pneumonia and anemia as her cause of death until her husband died under very similar circumstances short time later. Then I knew there was something more to it. Not necessarily criminal, but worth investigating.

    Btw I wondered if the air conditioning unit had been tested for residue if heavy metals. How recent were any house renovations?

    Chromium: air conditioning coolants, engine parts, brake emissions

    (Don't think that was on the list)

    Heavy Metals: Airborne Lead and Mercury Vapors

    Lead (Pb)

    Lead is a toxic metal mainly used as an anti-knock agent in gasoline (Lead tetraethyl - Pb(C2H5)4) and in batteries (lead dioxide as an anode and lead as a cathode). Until recently, lead tetraethyl was a main source of atmospheric lead emissions in developing countries. This contribution has dropped in absolute numbers but still accounts for 30 to 40% of total emissions. Batteries are now an important source of lead for transportation, but a very limited amount of this lead is carried through the atmosphere (see water pollution). Extremely poisonous metal. Lead has effects on the metabolism and accumulates in living tissues. May causes anemia, and mental retardation for young children. For instance, an extremely high occurrence of mental retardation in some parts of Mexico city was directly linked with lead poisoning. Small doses may cause behavioral changes. Lead is fixed by plants and animals and re-contaminate the food chain. It has a high potential to accumulate in the environment. Lead can also be transported in the atmosphere over wide distances.

    -=-=-=-=-

    Since this was 9-10 times the WHO maximum recommendations and there were 10 heavy metals listed. Their house would have had to be the perfect storm of heavy metal poisoning (Apologies to any Styx fans or the song itself).
