Nearly five months to the day after Brittany Murphy’s death, the actress’ husband, Simon Monjack, 39, was found dead Sunday night in the home the couple shared.

Monjack, a screenwriter, was still living in the home where his wife died when he passed away from an apparent heart attack. Murphy’s mother, who was living with Monjack, called 911 at around 9:30 p.m. when she found her son-in-law unconscious.

While there were prescription bottles prescribed to Monjack found near the scene, police are saying that the death appears to be of natural causes. However, nothing will be confirmed until after the results of toxicology tests are released.

Murphy who died December 20, at 32, due to a combination of pneumonia, anemia and prescription drugs — many of which were actually prescribed to her husband — was declared to have died an accidental death by the coroner. –ELENA COX

    I was saddened when I heard of Brittany Murphy's passing away, specifically at such a young age. Now her husband Simon Monjack, just months after her death, was found dead as well. They had been both said to have had a heart attack, which is odd considering they had been both so young. They later determined that Murphy's death was due to pneumonia along with some medicine she had taken that was not prescribed to her. Her immune method was bad and it just crashed. Simon Monjack was only 39 years old at his passing.
