New info in Brittany Murphy's 2009 death

LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New information is coming out in the death of actress Brittany Murphy.

A toxicology report ordered by her family says rat poison may have been the cause of her death.

Murphy's mother found her dead at home in 2009, and the Los Angeles Coroner ruled her death was due to pneumonia and anemia.

Then, Brittany's husband died from the same causes five months later.

According to the examiner, this new report even suggests that Brittany and Simon could have been murdered by a third party.
