Brittany Murphy Ill, Vomiting Before Dying of Cardiac Arrest

December 21, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Brittany Murphy, the ebullient actress notable for her roles in Clueless, 8 Mile and Girl Interrupted, was sick and vomiting for several days before her death on Sunday of cardiac arrest, according to a report by TMZ. She may also have had an underlying chronic condition. The mother of the 32-year-old actress told paramedics that her daughter suffered from type 2 diabetes.

Sources told TMZ that Murphy had been ill for several days with flu-like symptoms. And she was taking prescription medications to treat the symptoms of her illness. There were multiple prescription medications found in the home, prescribed for Murphy, her husband Simon Monjack, and Murphy’s mother. But no illegal drugs were found in the house.

Law enforcement sources, said Murphy was vomiting in the bathroom where she collapsed, and she somehow made it into the shower.

An autopsy will be performed by the medical coroner early this week.
