Brittany Murphy’s toxicology results were composed of high levels of heavy metals often found in rat poisoning

Brittany Murphy may been poisoned, according to new to a new toxicology report. Brittany Murphy was found dead when her mother went to visit her at her home on December 20, 2009. Her original cause of death according to the LA Coroner’s report was pneumonia and anemia, but after her husband died from the same causes 5 months later, her father Angelo Bertolotti began to suspect that the couple had been poisoned.

Bertolotti then ordered an independent report for his daughter from The Carlson Company and after years of trying to obtain blood and hair samples he finally got results and it confirmed the suspicions that he had.

According to the report that The Examiner obtained, “Ten (10) of the heavy metals evaluated were detected at levels higher that the WHO [World Health Organization] high levels. Testing the hair strand sample identified as “back of head” we have detected ten heavy metals at levels above the WHO high levels recommendation. If we were to eliminate the possibility of a simultaneous accidental heavy metals exposure to the sample donor then the only logical explanation would be an exposure to these metals (toxins) administered by a third party perpetrator.”

This makes sense considering Brittany Murphy complained of all of the related heavy metal poisoning symptoms right before she died. She complained of headaches, dizziness, cramps, sweating, disorientation, wheezing, congestion and pneumonia. These are all things associated with poisoning.

Angelo Bertolotti proceeded to sue the LA Coroner’s Department and the Los Angeles Police Department under the allegations of “failure to conduct toxicology tests on specimens.” Bertolotti told The Examiner he was frustrated with the slander that his daughter was receiving at the time of her death because of the false LA Coroner report.

“Vicious rumors spread by tabloids, unfairly smeared Brittany’s reputation,” he told The Examiner. “My daughter was neither anorexic nor a drug junkie, as they repeatedly implied. Brittany and Simon were ridiculed by The Hollywood Reporter, when they complained of being under surveillance and in fear of their lives. I will not rest until the truth of these tragic events is told. There will be justice for Brittany.”

Unfortunately, the LA County Coroner Office told The Huffington Post that they had no plans to reopen the case and examine this tragedy further. “The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has no plans to reopen our inquiry into the deaths. We stand by our original reports,” said the Chief Coroner Investigator, Craig R. Harvey. “We have not been presented any [third] party lab results for analysis, so we are unable to comment on publicized reports of private tests.”
