Brittany Murphy Autopsy Underway

Brittany Murphy’s autopsy has officially gotten underway. According to TMZ, the LA County Coroner has begun the autopsy on the actress against the wishes of her husband Simon Monjack.

There are many questions surrounding Britney’s death at this point. As Hollyscoop previously reported, Britney was very ill in the days leading up to her death. There were also numerous prescriptions found in her LA home.

Britney’s own father is in a state of shock. Angelo Bertolotti tells Us Weekly, "There is nothing I can say. I can't believe this is happening. She was a young 32. She wasn't supposed to die like this."

"I don't understand how she died," he continued. "This doesn't make sense to me."

Bertolotti had not been in contact with his daughter for three years. "Ever since she married that Simon, I lost contact with her," he says. "But I always kept track of her to make sure she was OK in case she needed me. She married him and everything changed. After that, we weren't so close."

Brittany’s father also expressed how much everyone in the industry loved his daughter. "Everyone she worked with loved her. That's who she was. She was loveable," Bertolotti tells Us. "There is nothing more I can say. I'm trying to make sense of this, and I can't."

Out thoughts are with him and the rest of Brittany’s family who have to deal with such a tragic loss like this. Check back for more details surrounding her autopsy.
