    Brittany Murphy's Husband Simon Monjack Found Dead - Murphy only passed in December!

    A mere five months after actress Brittany Murphy died tragically from a lethal mix of pneumonia, iron deficiency and multiple drugs in her system, her eyebrow raising husband Simon Monjack has also perished. Monjack was found dead on Sunday night at the couple's Hollywood home. The Los Angeles County coroner's office confirmed the news.

    Monjack was 39 and a screenwriter from Britain. He married Murphy, who died at 32, in 2007. Ever since his marriage to Murphy, he came under intense media scrutiny. He was found dead when the Los Angeles Fire Department was called to the residence for a medical emergency. According to People, police spokesman Sgt. Louie Lozano said the preliminary cause of death was natural causes, but investigators remained at the scene for further, well, investigation.

    Monjack told People in January that he took care of his wife. While some of Murphy's friends felt that Monjack should have been investigated regarding Murphy's death, the cornoer's office said that Monjack was never considered a suspect and that no one was criminally liable since the actress' death was ruled an accident. Murphy's mother also supported Monjack and felt he had nothing to do with her daughter's death.

    Do you think Monjack's death will is from natural causes? Could he have died of a broken heart after losing Murphy?
