Actress Brittany Murphy, who starred in films such as “Clueless” and “8 Mile” and who also frequented Park City Ski Resort, died of natural causes, the LA County Coroner’s office said today.  Murphy died Sunday in Los Angeles, after her mother found her unconscious in the shower.  TMZ has reported that Murphy was feeling sick before she died and had taken prescription drugs.  In addition, authorities found a large amount of prescription drugs at her home as they were investigating on Sunday.  The coroner has begun the autopsy, despite her husband, Simon Monjack, objecting.  It could take 6-8 weeks to determine the cause of her death.
