Coroner completes Brittany Murphy autopsy

The Associated Press, Monday, December 21, 2009, 3:38pm (PST)

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles County coroner's office says it has completed an autopsy of Brittany Murphy but will defer releasing a cause of death until after toxicology tests are complete.

It says there was no evidence of trauma to Murphy's body.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter says the autopsy was completed Monday.

Murphy died Sunday after collapsing in the bathroom of her Hollywood Hills home. Winter says her family told coroner's investigators she had been suffering from flu-like symptoms in the days before her death.

The 32-year-old appeared in films such as "Clueless," "8 Mile" and "Girl, Interrupted."
