After a request from the Brittany Murphy's father to reopen the case about her death, new lab results suggested that the "Clueless" actress might have been poisoned. This was entirely different cause compared to drug intoxication, anemia and pneumonia as initial causes of her death.

New toxicology reports claimed Murphy had high dosages of metal in her hair, skin, blood and tissue during her death Dec. 20, 2009. Angelo Bertolotti, Murphy's father, sued the Los Angeles Coroner's office and wanted to reopen the case. Bertolotti said, "His daughter's death was incorrectly determined to have been allegedly caused by pneumonia and anemia," as reported by the Examiner.

Because of this, a new test was performed by Colorado's Carlson Company, and it found heavy metals in prominent elements of Murphy's body, hugely suggesting that the actress was poisoned. The LA Coroner's office was unable to release these findings, let alone consider testing Murphy for poisoning.

"Ten of the heavy metals evaluated were detected at levels higher than the World Health Organization high levels. If we were to eliminate the possibility of a simultaneous accidental heavy metals exposure to the sample donor then the only logical explanation would be an exposure to these metals (toxins) administered by a third party perpetrator with likely criminal intent," stated in the report, as posted by the Examiner.

Murphy died at 32 and hospital reports said the actress experienced symptoms of extreme heavy metal poisoning moments before her death. Dizziness, nausea, abdominal cramps, tremors, sweating, disorientation, coughing and wheezing were all she felt shortly before her death. Simon Monjack, Murphy's husband at that time, died of similar results shortly after the actress passed away. These new findings suggested that the similar deaths were not coincidental at all.

Bertolotti told Examiner, as reiterated by Contact Music, that he will use this new information to clear Murphy's name and image.

"Vicious rumors, spread by tabloids, unfairly smeared Brittany's reputation, my daughter was neither anorexic nor a drug junkie, as they repeatedly implied. Brittany and Simon were ridiculed by The Hollywood Reporter, when they complained of being under surveillance and in fear for their lives. I will not rest until the truth about these tragic events is told. There will be justice for Brittany."
