Brittany Murphy's Father And Mother-In-Law Call For Death To Be Reopened, Claims Star And Husband Were Poisoned

This story just keeps getting weirder!
Brittany Murphy's mysterious 2009 death at the age of 32 shocked Hollywood -- and the story only further floored us when her husband Simon Monjack died in the same house as the Clueless star, only six months later. The coroner later ruled that Murphy had died from pneumonia and anemia. However, the 2010 findings are looking doubtful after Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, commissioned an independent toxicology analysis that found the actress’ body contained abnormally high levels of the toxic metal Barium, which is common in rat poison, as well as arsenic, lithium and tin.
Bertolotti released the results found by Colorado-based laboratory the Carlson Company on Monday. The testing was done on a hair sample from the back of Murphy’s head and resulted in the detection of “ten heavy metals at levels above the World Health Organization high levels recommendation.”
The summary also said if one was 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 with criminal intent.”
Monjack's mother, who is calling for both cases to be reopened, also seems to suspect some foul play. "I have a feeling that something is terribly wrong," Linda Monjack told MailOnline.
"I believe that lots of things were covered up that should not have been covered up and I do know that my son died unnecessarily in circumstances that are very, very suspect," she added.
The Los Angeles Coroner's office said that pending a review of the toxicology report, they could exhume Murphy's body for further examination.
We hope authorities finally get to the bottom of this sad mystery.
