In a story that only gets more bizarre by the moment, Britney Murphy’s husband, British Screenwriter Simon Monjack, has now been found dead of apparent “natural causes”.
Yes, Simon was found dead in the Hollywood home he and his wife and mother-in-law formerly shared a mere five months after her death. A woman, who has yet to be identified, called 911 last evening after she found his body. At this point the (busy) L.A. Coroner’s Office is running lead since there is no evidence of criminal activity or foul play. No details classifying it as a suicide have been released either.
Murphy’s death was determined to be by a deadly combination of prescription medications apparently used to treat a cold or respiratory infection.
I’m sure, just as it was in the case of his wife, details of Monjack’s death will be slowly released over a few weeks.
We’ll report the details as they are released.
