'Brittany Murphy: An ID Mystery': Viewers are convinced actress's husband and mother were behind her death
More than a decade later, actress Brittany Murphy's death still haunts us. Her death was made even more suspicious by the circumstances during and after her demise. When her husband Simon Monjack died five months later of reportedly the same causes including pneumonia and anemia, it got even more suspicious. At the time of her death, Brittany was living with her husband Simon Monjack and her mother Sharon Murphy. Monjack was an English screenwriter, director, producer and make-up artist.
In 2013, Brittany's father, Angelo Bertolotti, ordered an independent toxicology report, which found high levels of toxic metals including ingredients used in rat poison in Brittany's hair. Bertolotti initially thought Monjack was to blame, but he later pointed the finger on Brittany’s mother when Monjack died. In ID's latest special, 'Brittany Murphy: An ID Mystery', few details were shown which exacerbated suspicions that Brittany's mother and husband might have been behind her death. After Brittany's death, Monjack gave an odd "tour" of the death room and Brittany's closet, without exuding the image of a mourning widower.
When Monjack died, officers were informed that Brittany's mother Sharon and Monjack were sharing a bed to comfort each other in the aftermath of Brittany's death. Moreover, it was revealed that neither Monjack nor Brittany's mother wanted an autopsy done on Brittany's body.
One viewer tweeted, "They shared the bed.... comforting each other ??? This just don’t sit right with me at all #BrittanyMurphy." Another wrote, "Sharon used their own murder plot against him and that's why Simon died #BrittanyMurphy." One viewer opined, "Hmm so now everybody think it was the Husband and the mother... I been said somebody should’ve been on that mama #BrittanyMurphy (sic)," while another shared, "I’ve always suspected foul play. Seemed suspicious that both Brittany and her widower husband died of pneumonia and anemia, and the common denominator in all of this is the mother, Sharon Murphy. #BrittanyMurphy."
A viewer tweeted, "It’s odd to me to why her mother still stuck around him even after Brittany died like why was she still living in the house with him #BrittanyMurphy," while another wrote, "I think Sharon Murphy is a fraud, those 911 calls were both seemed shady! Strange she was the only one not to get sick! Especially of the mold!! #BrittanyMurphy #BrittanyMurphy." One viewer wrote, "Sharon denied any interviews cuz she didn’t want to get caught up about killing her daughter and son in law. Meanwhile they were f**king. This is sickening #BrittanyMurphy." Another tweeted, "I am just trying to rationalize Sharon killing her daughter her so called 'Soulmate'? Was it to be with her Husband? They planned it together then she killed him for the money?! It just so bizzare to me!" Another shared, "#BrittanyMurphy Listen I’m not saying she did it, but I AM SAYING why do I feel like Sharon Murphy and Carole Baskin share ALOT of similarities...."
