This is sad news. My thoughts are with the family through such a tragic loss. Ms. Murphy was a gifted actress who should have been given the opportunity to make more films in her lifetime.

This is terrible !! Thought she was very funny and sweet. Sorry to say that I have suspected an eating disorder and/or drug use lately. I hope I´m wrong. R.I.P and god bless her and the family.

I remember when she married her husband some of the blogs were saying he was a really bad person for her to be involved with.

There isn't a single other news source with this story either you guys got a HUGE jump or it's a hoax, waiting for conformation, maybe it was her husband, not her, wasn't HE just treated for heart issues? Something fishy if it's really her. I hope it's not.
