Brittany Murphy Death Certificate

12/29/2009 2:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the Brittany Murphy death certificate, filed just this morning.

Brittany Murphy Death Certificate

The manner of death is checked as "pending investigation." The immediate cause of death says, "deferred."

As for manner, the possibilities include accident, natural, homicide, suicide and undetermined.

As for cause, the L.A. County Coroner is awaiting toxicology and tissue tests.

Interestingly, although several entertainment outlets interviewed Brittany's father after her death ... the death certificate lists the father as "UNKNOWN."

Also interesting ... there's a line on the certificate for "INFORMANT." The name listed is "Tayebe Pajooh, cousin," who has a mailing address in North Carolina. A rep for the County tells TMZ an informant is someone who gives vital information, such as SS#, to the mortuary.

Unknown is what people call him. It's like Cher or Madonna or Bono.

A man being a biological father and being "just like a father" are 2 very different legal things. RIP Brittany, you've earned it.

undetermined menas there was no obvious cause of death. most likely the coroner expects the bloodwork to show why she died. Most likely another drug overdose.If the blood comes back ok the cause will never be known.
Occasionally a young persons heart just stops beating for no apparent reason so most likely the tox screen will tell what happened.

Brittany's husband still looks like a suspect to me. He's ‘supposing’ to get sick on a very public airplane, then is at In-N-Out later. Now he has the beginning of an alibi in case they find something in her system. ("Somethng happened to me too") He didn’t even want her cremated.

"Deferred" means that she was totally shaved, I believe...
