Brittany Murphy‘s dad, is suing the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office over access to his late daughter’s hair samples so he can conduct his own testing because he disagrees with the official cause of her death, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Angelo Bertolotti states in the court docs: “Plaintiff discussed the findings in the Autopsy Report which attributed his daughter’s death to Community-Acquired Pneumonia and Iron Deficiency Anemia. Plaintiff repeatedly voiced his concerns about these findings as being incorrect, since the testing/toxicology was incomplete and the death of Brittany Anne Murphy Monjak was never fully investigated.”
Five months after Murphy’s tragic death, her husband, Simon, died, after Brittany’s mom, Sharon, found him unresponsive. Simon also died from pneumonia and anemia.
Bertlotti wants a judge to order the Los Angeles County Coroner to release hair samples, facial hair, and other specimens that the office has in its possession so he can pursue further testing.
