Simon Monjack, husband of the late Brittany Murphy, was found dead last night in his Hollywood Hills home, just a mere five months after his wife's accidental death, thus making the whole saga that much weirder. Brittany Murphy's Death Keeps Getting Sadder
As of yet, the cause of death is unknown, but would it be too far of a leap for your imagination to consider murder by the hands of his mother-in-law? (The two were rumored lovers after all.) Death by a broken heart? (It was his suspicion for Brittany.) Multiple drug intoxication. (Ahem, ahem.) Simon Monjack Moving To NYC With Brittany's Mom?
Or, and we shouldn't be too dismissive about this last theory, maybe this is all an elaborate ruse, a death faked, a final "I got you" by the genius that society never got.
More like a suspected heart attack, which seems almost too normal a conclusion for the oh-so-absurd narrative that is Simon Monjack. Simon Monjack Suing Hollywood For Brittany Murphy
As reported by the L.A. Times:
Screenwriter Simon Monjack died at the home in the 1800 block of Rising Glen Road, just five months after the death of his wife, according to Sgt. Louie Lozano. The cause of death was unknown late Sunday night.
"We have detectives at scene," Lozano said. "They are conducting their investigation. Once we have further information, we will provide it."
At 9:24 p.m. Sunday, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a 911 call for an “unspecified medical aid request,” according to spokesman Brian Humphrey. Fire Department personnel provided medical services to Monjack, and he was pronounced dead, according to a Los Angeles police sergeant, who declined to give his name, at the Hollywood Station late Sunday night. The sergeant said detectives were arriving at the home.
