In an article on the Examiner yesterday, Brittany Murphy’s 82-year-old dad Angelo Bertolotti vowed to search the foggy, cobblestone streets with his magnifying glass until he found out what really happened to his daughter and her husband Simon Monjack. Angelo claims that a third party tested hair samples and found toxins and heavy metals. Angelo thinks they were poisoned to death and he thinks he knows who did it: THE GUV’MENT!
Angelo said in an interview with Fleur De Lis Film Studios (via The Daily Mail) last year that before their deaths Brittany and Simon were under surveillance. Helicopters followed them and their phones were tapped. Angelo thinks that the government wanted to shut Brittany up, because she openly supported her friend Julia Davis who sued the Department of Homeland Security. Brittany was supposed to be a witness in Julia’s lawsuit.
Julia Davis (fun fact: Julia Davis also claims she was St. Angie’s stunt double once) says that she EXPOSED a security flaw while working as a boarder security guard in California. Julia discovered that there were flaws in security that were allowing terrorists to sneak into the country. Julia says that Homeland Security didn’t like her blowing the whistle on their asses and labeled her as a “domestic terrorist.”
Unlike Angelo Bertolotti, Julia isn’t coming out and saying that a government assassin secretly snuck rat poison into Brittany’s Truvia, but she does think it was murder. Julia said this to Hollywood Life:
“We believe that she was poisoned by somebody. We’re not pointing figures at who but we would like investigators to look into. We’ve submitted formal demands to reopen the case. Hopefully the LAPD will — they had previously closed it within one hour, so clearly didn’t investigate enough. Hopefully now, they’ll do that promptly.
After blowing a whistle on Homeland Security, they targeted me on a number, 54 actually, investigations. In one of them they used Brittany’s name in claims that she had told them I was working on a movie when I was supposed to be at work. It was bogus, so Brittany came to my defense and we got her attorneys into it as well. From that point on, she was targeted by Homeland Security as was her husband, Simon. They were both placed under constant surveillance.
We would like to set the record straight because there has been so many false reports. Brittany wasn’t a junkie, she wasn’t a party girl. She was a sweet, innocent young woman. Her dad and myself want to set the record truth. She didn’t deserve to die at such a young age.”
The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office told UsWeekly that they haven’t been presented with any new evidence that Brittany died of anything other than “natural causes.”
So after reading about all of this during the past couple of days, it looks like the suspects are: the government, Brittany’s mom Sharon, who lived with her and Simon, and natural causes. I won’t make any final judgements until I see Lifetime’s movie about this starring Brittany Snow as Brittany Murphy, Beverly D’Angelo as Sharon, Rupert from Survivor as Simon and Walter White (not Bryan Cranston, Walter White the character) as Angelo Bertolotti. And I really hope that Jeremy Sisto makes a cameo, because I’d like to think that he sang an acoustic version of “Rolling with the Homies” at Brittany’s funeral.
