Simon Monjack Found Dead In His Home Five Months After Wife
May 24, 2010
California (ChattahBox) – Simon Mojack, a British screenwriter and husband of the late Brittany Murphy, was found dead in their Los Angeles home just five months after the actress was found in the same house.
Mojack had long since suffered from seizures, and had had a heart attack in 2009.
He was found unconscious in his bedroom, and Sharon Murphy, Brittany’s mother, found him and called 9-1-1. She also found her daughter’s body earlier this year.
When paramedics arrived they pronounced Mojack dead on the scene.
While the cause of death has not yet been confirmed, it is believed to have been natural.
Brittany Murphy’s death was, likewise, believed to have been natural. She had had pneumonia, and had been a long sufferer of anemia. The coroner on her case believes that the mixture of the two, plus a large number of legal drugs meant to treat cold and flu symptoms, contributed to her death.
Our condolences to both the Monjack and the Murphy families in this fresh loss.
