A toxicology test revealed that actress Brittany Murphey the cause of her death in 2009 may have been caused with criminal intent.
The lab reports detected 10 heavy metals at an abnormal level and suggested a third party perpetrator may have been involved.
Heavy metals are usually found in chemicals used to kill rodents and insects. The symptoms include headaches, abdominal craps, tremors, disorientation, congestion and pneumonia.
When she died in 2009, the Coroner declared her death by drug intoxication, pneumonia and anemia but her father requested the tests be taken further.
He said: “My daughter was neither anorexic not a drug junkie, as they repeatedly implied. I will not rest until the truth about these tragic events is told. There will be justice for Brittany.”
However there are still no plans to re-open the case. Chief Coroner Investigator Craig R Harvey said: “The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has no plans to reopen our inquiry into the deaths. We stand by our original reports.
“We have not been presented with any [third]party lab test results for analysis, so we are unable to comment on publicised reports of private lab tests.”
