I am extremely happy they are doing this. Something is awful fishy to me about not wanting an autopsy. I understand the wishes of the family, but I don't understand why you wouldn't want to know why your 32 yr old wife would randomly die.

The thought of that vibrant girl just lying on a cold table being cut open just makes me feel horrible.

Brittany, I hope that you will rest in peace...

Another one bites the dust. It should be common sense not to mix prescriptions. Your heart has to go out to the family.

I hope they are listening to Rollin With The Homies, while they are doing the autopsy.

I bet she was being treated by Dr. Murray.

By the way...stop sentationalizing her death. I've just heard by other tv news that they are thinking she died of natural causes... even though she was 32, it is possible and it happens lots of times every year even with younger people.

What a coincidence that the house
Brittany Murphy died in, she purchased from Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake back in 2003.

Who would've guessed that out of the two Brittanys, Brittany Murphy would have been the one to go first..

My condolences go out to the family, and to those wholm loved her.
Brittany was a joy to work with, and to have met.

You will be missed baby-girl.....Artofwar

There is always an autopsy when the cause of death is unknown, especially in a case like this. Shady~ prob adderall and eating disorder, her little heart couldn't keep up-it was fried! RIP
