Brittany Murphey Death Cause: Pneumonia And Drugs

February 4, 2010

California (ChattahBox) – A preliminary report has been issued on the cause of 32-year-old Brittany Murphey’s death, and while pneumonia was the primary factor, drugs and anemia also played a part.

According to coroner spokesman Craig Harvey, the use of multiple prescription drugs and a severe iron-deficiency caused by anemia were serious factors in her death.

It was, however, the pneumonia that killed the young actress.

The drugs that were found in her system will be released in the next few weeks, once a full list has been made.

It is not clear whether it was due to her abusing her prescriptions, or just a bad mix, that might have contributed to her death.
