I wouldn't be surprised if drugs were the cause but still way to young to go.

She was looking to have a child with her husband in the next year. Unfortunately I think she may have done some damage to herself a few years back with drugs. : (

That's a shame. I enjoyed her films. Far too young.

She was the voice of Luanne wasnt she? What a loss at such a young age. I know how it would be easy to blame drug use, but I wont jump to that conclusion. Ive seen a few full blown codes come into the ER involving younger people where there was no apparent drug use at all. A good friend of mine also lost his wife a couple years back. She was in her early 40s and had given birth two months prior to suffering a heart attack. Coroner said it was due to a clot from her pregnancy. theres lots of reasons other than drugs that can lead to a heart attack. Either way its a sad loss, and my condolences go out to her family, friends and fans.

I am honestly sad over her death! I've always told my wife that Brittany Murphy was the only woman i'd ever leave her for. Her laugh always makes me smile...

I agree. I've seen it happen to young people my whole career. Congenital heart defects can go undiagnosed their whole life. I recenty lost a co-worker from a ruptured aneurysm @ 41 who I guarantte has never touched an illegal substance. It's sad people want to automatically assume drugs had to do something to do with sudden death. This assumed label makes it even tougher & sadder for friends & family dealing with their loss.

A girl I work with is 34 and had a heart attack last week. She might have an extra 10lbs on her but who doesn't. Bottom line, she appears healthy. Doctors say it could be related to a type of birth control pill. Anyone ever hear anything like that??

My wife thought her heart was gonna jump out of her chest when she started taking a new birth control pill. I wouldn't doubt that at all.

Yes. Some birth control pills have been associated with blood clotting, leading to heart attack/stroke.
