By Jen HegerRadar Legal Editor

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.
