Celeb Tributes Pour in for Brittany as More Details Emerge

Details are emerging about Brittany Murphy's death, as the coroner prepares to carry out an autopsy "as soon as possible".

According to reports, Brittany was taking prescription medication for flu-like symptoms, in the days before her death. She suffered a heart attack and collapsed in the bathroom of her LA home on Sunday morning, where she was found unconscious by her mother. Brittany was rushed to LA's Cedars-Sinai hospital, but was sadly pronounced dead at 10.04am (5.04am AEDT Monday).

Brittany's husband Simon Monjack has reportedly requested that an autopsy not be performed. While the LA coroner, Capt. John Kades, said in a statement to the media: "Foul play is not suspected at this time because there were no outward signs of trauma or other injuries."

Brittany's publicist made this statement in the hours following her death:

"The sudden loss of our beloved Brittany is a terrible tragedy. She was our daughter, our wife, our love and a shining star. We ask you to respect our privacy at this time."
