Brittany Murphy Autopsy -- 'Normal'

12/21/2009 7:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brittany MurphyTMZ has learned Brittany Murphy's autopsy is complete. There were no signs of foul play, we've learned, and there was nothing that pointed to a cause of death. The cause of death has been "deferred" pending other tests.

Sources say the L.A. County Coroner will wait for the toxicology report, as well as the histopathology (study of her organs and tissues) and neuropathology (study of her brain).

One source said the body appeared "normal." In addition, we're told she did not appear overly thin -- in contrast to some photos that surfaced several weeks ago. There was no evidence of trauma to the body.

We're told the Coroner will not determine cause of death until the other reports are submitted -- in 4 to 6 weeks.

One issue the Coroner is interested in -- what prescription drugs were in Brittany Murphy's system.

Sooo Sad how does a 32 just drop dead and vomit before dieing. I believe something other than cardiac arrest killed her

And the plot thickens! Just like the arteries of her fat f[u]ck husband's heart. :-)

I really think people are going to be surprised. I think the prescription pills were antibiotics for her flu and that she died from flu complications.

Hmm...well if it was a heart attack I imagine they would have seen it maybe combo of prescription drugs I wonder if they would be able to tell if she was ill with H1N1 or it would come back with the other tests sad very sad

She may have died from complications of the flu: dehydration and strain on her heart from vomiting too much.

You're not supposed to take antibiotics if you have the flu - unless there's an infection.

This sounds scary and horrible.

How can her heart just suddenly stop if she was taking regular medicine???
