Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack Not Killed by Toxic Mold

July 27, 2010 (7:34 am) GMT
After doing a brief examination, Los Angeles County coroner's officials ruled out the possibility that toxic mold played a part in the deaths of Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack.

Los Angeles County coroner's officials have ruled out reports mold played a role in the deaths of actress and her husband Simon Monjack. The authorities briefly examined whether toxic mold played a part in the deaths of the couple, who died five months apart - and quickly ruled it out.

Ed Winter, the coroner's assistant, tells the Los Angeles Times, "There were no indicators that either death was related to mold." Both Murphy and Monjack died of pneumonia combined with anaemia.

Over the weekend, the "Clueless" star's mother Sharon dismissed the "absurd" reports suggesting mold in her daughter's marital home may have contributed to the untimely deaths of the actress and her husband. She says, "It's absurd that this kind of misinformation is being reported by the media."
