Brittany Murphy’s dad, Angelo Bertolotti, has commissioned a second lab test of his late daughter’s hair samples and the results were the same as the first time, further corroborating his claim that his daughter was poisoned.

The examination concluded that Brittany had unusually high (i.e., toxic) levels of heavy metals and toxins in her system, including Barium, which is a common ingredient in pesticides.

Angelo was never satisfied with the investigation of his daughter’s death in 2009. The actress tragically died at just 32 years old.

“It was never tested for poison,” he said. “My child died in agony, suffering from strong abdominal pain and violently vomiting, until her body shut down. Her death was brushed under the carpet.”

After Angelo released the results of the first lab test, it did nothing to sway the authorities to reopen Brittany’s case. That’s likely to be the outcome here because there still isn’t a way for him to verify how he retrieved samples of Brittany’s hair.
