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.

OK First and foremost, to Brittany and Simon-May you both find peace at last, while we are sad to lose both of you, we take comfort in knowing you will be at peace.
To "Michelle Mintchwarner"-it sounds to me like you are trying more to convince yourself that you actually knew her, rather than convincing us. Everything you sited as prove that you knew her, any moron could find on the internet. If you in fact did know, while you may feel that you are defending a lost friend, all you are succeeding in doing is making yourself look like a jack*ss!
Movies are exactly that...movies. Houses are an inanimate object, they do "make evil things" happen. Get a grip!
And lastly, Sharon does look suspicious, however we leave in a free country where a person is innocent until proven guilty. I agree with most, things do not look good for her right now, but lets wait and see what the coroner says.
In the meantime, perhaps we ALL could spend a little less time insulting Brittany and Simon, and more time realizing they were both very young, and are gone now. Don't speak ill of the dead!
