Murphy's mother Sharon found Monjack unconscious in the house he shared with Brittany. Sharon called 911 but by the time the paramedics arrived, he had already passed away.
An emotional Sharon is heard telling the dispatcher: "My son-in-law, he stopped breathing...he was just breathing and now he stopped breathing. He's sleeping." She added: "Hurry up, please!...He had fluid in his mouth...and he snored and then he stopped breathing." Sharon said she found Monjack on his back on his bed.
The dispatcher is heard walking Sharon though steps to assess Monjack's breathing and administer CPR.
No illegal drugs were found in the house but prescription drugs were present in the home.
