Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, didn’t accept the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office conclusion that the “Clueless” star and husband Simon Monjack died of natural causes — pneumonia and anemia — five months apart. He sued to gain access to her hair samples, and hired Seilheimer’s private lab, the Carlson Company, to look for signs of poisoning.
The lab found evidence she was was poisoned — probably by “a third party perpetrator with likely criminal intent,” according to the report, which was authorized by Seilheimer.
“We have no comment on that and our report stands as of now,” he told TheWrap.
Bertolotti told TheWrap he was not immediately available to comment Monday. Murphy died in 2009, and Monjack in 2010.
“Whatever the findings, if there was something to report, they would report it to us,” he said.
The report found that Murphy’s body had dramatically elevated levels of aluminum, manganese, barium and other metals.
