Brittany Murphy's Husband Reportedly Doesn't Want Autopsy

Brittany Murphy's Husband Reportedly Doesn't Want Autopsy

Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack was seen arriving back at home this afternoon, just a few hours after the shocking news that 32-year-old Brittany died today. According to TMZ, the LAPD is launching an investigation into her death, but Monjack doesn't want there to be an autopsy performed. The coroner's office will go ahead with the procedure anyway — though foul play is "not suspected." Meanwhile, there has been an outpouring of love for the Clueless star including from celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson, and her ex Ashton Kutcher on Twitter.

It is a little strange - but if I had just lost a loved one only hours ago and it was a complete surprise - I would be horrified at the idea of them on a steel table, being sliced open, examined and so on. I know it sounds odd, but if someone had been near you, completely animated and full of life so recently it would be so hard to come to terms with the fact that their body is now just an empty shell.

so sad. i cried. I heard that she changed after marrying him. something is off about him for sure.

If she had diabetes and she wasn't taking care of herself, she could've died from cardiac arrest. My mother-in-law died the same way. Although she was 50, not 32.

regardless of religion, if a person dies and their medical history doesn't state something obvious at the time of death, an autopsy has to happen if for no other reason than the death certificate..."unknown" won't cut it with a 32 yr old...the husband may or may not have something to hide or maybe he doesn't want her secrets exposed to the media...most likely, they used some kind of drugs, pills or whatever else...he is indeed creepy, I agree 200%

So what if he does not want an autopsy?! He probably wants a closure, bet I would be that way if a loved one passed away, what good will knowing details do?! She is dead end of story! Let the bereaved family move on..

Maybe her husband doesn't want her reputation tarnished, meaning he probably knows what she died of. I hate to say it but its definitely not the first time a celebrity has died from drug overdoses etc. I guess we will know in 8 weeks. It is a sad situation :(

yep and here come the people who "knew her" they always come out of the woodwork. Personally if i "knew" a star that had died, i would keep my mouth closed because its personal. and since this person put her address and website? i find it tasteless.

Maybe he just doesn't want to cause more media scrutiny on his wife's untimely demise and that can cause more pain to her family.It may be that it's his religion, or maybe he already knows the reasons but he just doesn't want things to turn into a media circus. (I'm saying that because in the past some celebrities who passed away young had their autopsy record publicized and invited critical reactions--perhaps--and might cause more dismay and grief to the family members).Or this report by tmz may also be false. RIP.I really did like her, I remembered her on SNL too and how I was LMAO when watching her. She's a good comedic actress as well as good dramatic one too.

I've known Brittany Murphy since I worked with her on Clueless and continued to be acquainted with her over the past several years. She is a lovely young woman, full of grace, kindness and was a ray of sunshine on every movie set or charity event that I've ever encountered with her. I'm deeply saddened and shocked by her death. I'm also angry at the insensitive comments left by some anonymous people accusing her of drug use. Brittany has died of natural causes and has had health issues in the past with asthma and diabetes from my understanding. I would ask that people be respectful of the family, especially her fantastic mother, Sharon. My prayers go out to Brittany and her loved ones during this horrible tragedy. God bless you Brittany, you are already tremendously loved and missed.Respectfully,Cheryl ShumanExecutive DirectorBeverly Hills NORML90210http://www.NORML90210.org

Evidently she had the flu for several days and had been throwing up from that, which might be a factor in her untimely death. A lot of otherwise healthy adult people do die from the flu every year.I think using twitter to send condolences on someone you actually knew or had a relationship with is pretty tacky. Hopefully cards, calls, flowers, etc have also been sent, but that still doesn't take away from the twitter tackiness.She had a lot of memorable performances in her long resume, from a far too short life.
