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.

#167 The man is dead, I don't give a f*** what your personal opinion is about the man show some damn respect!! The man was famous in his own right without Brittany Murphy and when she died everyone was blaming him for killing her - until of course they found she died of pneumonia!! Simon Monjack had a known heart problem and was due for heart surgery but as soon as the cops arrive and they see pills on the table they start releasing their speculations to the press - when this turns out to have just been a heart attack no doubt you'll still be whining on with your conspiracy theories saying it's all just a cover up!!
It must have been a real shock to his mother-in-law to find him dead in the master bedroom just as she did her daughter, personally the woman has to be in shock still! At least whatever the findings he's re-united with Brittany and they can both R.I.P, neither of them gives an rats ass what you think anymore hm?!!

You all need to remember this was a former house of Britney Spears' - living in something that psycho lived in is enough to haunt anyone.

Too freaky. I saw Brittany in "uptown girls" a few nights ago and that film spooked me. Some of the scenes were just too eerie considering her death, {the dialoque and more}. If you watch "uptown girls" you'll know what I mean. And I never knew what a very charming actress she was. She was so tiny and so cute too, it's such a waste she's gone. And then her and Simon dying young, in the same house, ?! Fate is a strange one.

Oh it does not "scream foul play" for gods sake. He had serious heart trouble. And him and Brittany had too many pills at their disposal. Its called tragedy and bad judgement. Also, Brittany needed a doctor and didn't get one, she had a lung infection I think I read ? She's bad stomach pains too...so why didn't anyone make her see a doctor ? That little girl was not taken care of----

I find it rather odd, not so much coincedential that both Monjack and Murphy died within 5 months from similar causes. That poor family. :( R.I.P.
Anyone suspect the mother may have had something to do with their death?

Doctors said that it looks like he died for natural causes.
I read in few articles that he was suffering from heart disease and needed a by pass.
beside that, in my opinion he die from a broken heart.
Severe stressful events (especially in people who already suffer from heart disease) like the death of his wife, can have caused him to have an heart attack.
