Actress Brittany Murphy was reportedly experiencing and taking prescription medication for flu-like symptoms for several days before her tragic death.
Prescriptions were found in her home not only for her but also for husband Simon Monjack and her mother. An insider reveals, "There were a lot…a lot of prescription drugs in the house."
Brittany began vomiting early Sunday morning and after collapsing in the bathroom she ended up in the shower surrounded by mass amounts of vomit.
The police did not find any illegal drugs in her home, but numerous prescription meds which may have caused her to go into cardiac arrest.
We will know more after the autopsy which IS being performed on Monday or Tuesday, despite her husband's request for no autopsy.
Brittany was also living with type 2 diabetes, but it is not believed that the illness caused her death.
