When actress Brittany Murphy passed away in 2009, her death was ruled an accident. But a report published Monday, with shocking new details about Murphy's death, claims the actress was poisoned.
The actress, who appeared in 1995's "Clueless" as well as the films "8 Mile" and "Sin City" was found dead at her Los Angeles home in December 2009. Five months later, Murphy's husband Simon Monjack passed away with similar symptoms. (Via Paramount Pictures / "Clueless", KNBC)
The coroner's report claimed both Murphy and Monjack died of pneumonia and anemia. But Murphy's father was skeptical of the official story and had tissue samples independently tested.
