Brittany Murphy's Husband Found Dead

5/24/2010 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Simon Monjack, widower of Brittany Murphy, was found dead late Sunday night at his home in the Hollywood Hills -- the same home where his wife Brittany Murphy collapsed and eventually died five months earlier ... and both bodies were discovered by the same woman.

Coroner: Brittany Murphy Took Simon's Drugs

Law enforcement sources say Brittany's mother, Sharon Murphy, found Monjack unconscious in the master bedroom around 9:30PM, and then called 911.

Monjack was pronounced dead sometime after paramedics arrived ... when resuscitation efforts failed.

Monjack reportedly died from cardiac arrest, though nothing officially has been determined.

The similarities are remarkable. Murphy was found unconscious by her mother Sharon. Sharon found Simon unconscious as well. Murphy was found in the master bathroom. Simon was found in the master bedroom of the same home. Paramedics administered CPR to Simon. Simon administered CPR to Brittany. And they may have both died from cardiac arrest ... five months apart.

A death investigation is underway.

0524_monjack_winters_tmzUPDATE 5:15AM PDT: Law enforcement sources tell us prescription bottles were found in the house (as they were when Brittany died), but there were no illegal drugs. There is no sign of suicide or foul play ... as a result LAPD has closed their investigation. It's all in the coroner's hands now.

And another thing... Quit saying that Sharon gets it all. She already had it all as she was the sole beneficiary of Britney's will. What would she have to gain by killing Simon? If anything he would've been the one to gain something if he killed her.

Sad. Shame. This is what a broken heart can do to you. I never thought people could die from a broken heart until my godmother died after her breakup with her husband of 30yrs.

What was Brittany Murphy's mother doing in Monjack's master bedroom? I see that her estate was left to her mother. Perhaps Monjack was not happy to be left out of the will. I find it odd that wherever there is a drug induced suicide Brittany's mom finds the body.

Two words for Brittany's mother who found them both dead: MOVE and THERAPY. Goodness, that poor woman.

To make a long story short.. don't stand too close to Sharon Murphy. And, definitely don't ever live with her.

my sympathy gos out to the Monjack's family and the Murphy's family. Simon was heartbroken over the death of his beloved wife Brittany. I guess that he died of a broken heart. may Brittany and Simon both rest in peace. Hey would you people stopped judging just look in the mirror before you say anying
