Just consider it: A young married couple dying within five months of each other from the exact same causes (acute pneumonia and severe anemia) — raises an eyebrow or two, no? Brittany Murphy's Husband Simon Monjack Found Dead

- And then there's the audio we have where we hear her instructing Simon Monjack to tell "them" that "he had a fever" on a voicemail he left for himself the day he died.

- Both Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack were found dead in their Hollywood Hills home.
- In both occasions the same bottles of prescription drugs were found on the same nightstand.
- Numerous commenters on the Internet are speculating that it could have been mold, or pesticide poisoning that did them in.

Oh yeah, and then there's that whole business of the mysterious Lola. Brittany Murphy's Death Keeps Getting Sadder
