Brittany Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti, is suing the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office because he claims her autopsy was "never fully investigated.â€
Bertolotti, who is also suing the Los Angeles Police Department, has requested samples of his daughterâ€™s hair for his own testing. â€œIâ€™m not going to rest until my daughterâ€™s untimely demise is properly investigated, which hasnâ€™t happened so far. Her case deserves more than a superficial glance,â€ Bertolotti said in a press release.
In 2009 the coronerâ€™s office ruled that the 32-year-old actress died of pneumonia, anemia and prescription drug intoxication, but Bertolotti believes toxic mold in her Hollywood Hills home could have caused her death, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
