The tragic death of Brittany Murphy at the age of 32 may have been due to suicide, new reports are claiming. Murphy was found after a suspected cardiac arrest, however 32 year olds don’t usually keel over and die from a cardiac arrest unless there is a genetic disorder, or something else at play.
Reports of Murphy taking drugs have been circulating widely this year, and a drug overdose is a suspected cause of death. There was also news that she was fired from her latest movie two weeks; a blow that coincided with her husband being hospitalized both may have driven her into deep depression, and subsequently drove her to commit suicide.
The LA Coroner will be performing an autopsy on Murphy this week to confirm the cause of the death. [via Inquisitr]
