Seen above with her son-in-law Simon Monjack in a for a real picture that she actually posed for and agreed to pose for, Brittany Murphy’s mother Sharon Murphy wrote a longer than long open letter to The Hollywood Reporter where she slapped down her ex-husband Angelo Bertolotti for farting at the mouth to the press about how he feels their daughter was murdered by the government. Angelo had Brittany’s DNA tested by an independent lab and when the reports came back, it showed that she had toxins and heavy metals in her system. Angelo screamed “POISON!” and promised to find out the truth. Sharon won’t be following Angelo through the foggy cobblestone streets as he looks for their daughter’s murderer, because she doesn’t think Brittany was murdered.
In her open letter, Sharon, writes that Angelo is smearing her daughter’s memory and pretending he was a big part of her life when he wasn’t. Sharon writes that Angelo’s face was on a milk carton for years and when Brittany started to get famous, he magically showed up, but Brittany didn’t want to have anything to do with him. The last time Brittany saw her father was three years before she died. Sharon shits on Angelo’s evidence and then drags him across that shat-on evidence.
In light of the recent publicity about a lab test Angelo had done, I have asked some knowledgeable people, and they tell me that an analysis from a sample of hair is not considered dependable unless it is backed up by tests of tissue and blood and other analysis — which he did not do (the coroner did, but they show no similar results). I am also told one lab may give different results than another lab in terms of heavy metals, and the proper method requires multiple tests before any results are released.
The lab Angelo used, if you can call it that, is an Internet site that farmed out the actual testing and then wrote horribly untrue things under the guise of “analysis.” It mentioned rat poison as a possible cause and claimed to be able to say that a third party murdered my beloved daughter.
To even mention that the heavy metals that were listed in his test are in rat poison, leading to articles suggesting Brittany ingested that or anything like it, is absurd. If she had, don’t you think it would have shown up in the coroner’s test of her blood and tissue? A reputable expert will tell you that what this lab did is an ethical violation of the highest order; to even pretend to be able to draw such conclusions on unreliable evidence is the real crime.
This report conveniently ignores what any good scientist will tell you: A hair sample can be affected by many outside factors, including hair dye, hair spray, prescription medications, foods, smoking the occasional cigarette and environmental factors. One cause we now know may have been toxic mold that was eventually discovered in that house — which may have been what really killed her.
We will never know for sure. However, we do know the Los Angeles County Coroner did extensive tests and found that she died of natural causes. And now she is a real living angel in heaven.
Sharon goes on to shit on Angelo some more for planning a book and a documentary about Brittany’s death. Sharon says that Angelo is spreading lies for his own gain.
So on one side there’s Angelo who hasn’t really been in Brittany’s life that much and popped up to get on his soap box and scream about how she was murdered by the government for supporting a whistleblower. Then on the other side there’s Sharon who doesn’t think there’s something strange about her daughter and son-in-law dying five months apart. I’m also squinting my eyes at Sharon for posing with that picture and for writing an open letter. Nothing good comes from writing an open letter. I practically write Anderson Cooper a letter every time I write a post about him and the only thing it’s gotten me is permanently banned from the CNN building.
