The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says they need “credible evidence” to reopen Brittany Murphy’s death investigation.
Brittany’s father Angelo Bertolotti recently made bombshell claims that there were toxic levels of heavy metals the World Health Organization would consider “high” found on his daughter.
But the District Attorney’s Office says they need more proof to reopen the 2009 death of the actress.
“Of course, if someone, including Ms. Murphy’s father, came to us with credible evidence that her death could have been caused by foul play, the office would investigate it — just as they would in any other case not involving a celebrity,” a source within the DA’s office told Radar Online.
“I have a feeling that there was a definite murder situation here — it’s poison, yes, I know that,” Bertolotti insisted.
The Los Angeles County Coroner concluded the investigation into Brittany’s death in 2010, ruling it an accident. According to the official report, her death was caused by a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and “multiple drug intoxication.”
The Coroner’s Office has already stated they still believe their report to be accurate.
“We have not seen the results and nothing has been presented to us,” a spokesperson said. “We stand by what we ruled on the case.”
The source within the DA’s office goes on to explain that if the case were reopened, more interviews would take place. Brittany’s former Los Angeles home would also be searched again.
“As part of any potential criminal investigation, the District Attorney could subpoena Ms. Murphy’s medical records, search warrants of her former residence, conduct interviews with key witnesses including her parents,” the source added.
Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack tragically died five months after she passed away.
