Just five months after actress Brittany Murphy passed away from cardiac arrest, her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, has also been found dead in his California home. The couple had no children.
Law enforcements say that Murphy's mother, Sharon, called for help after she found Monjack in the master bedroom at around 9:30pm on Sunday.
He was pronounced dead sometime after paramedics arrived. Cause of death was not immediately known. Monjack was 39 years old, WorstPreviews.com reports.
The body of British screenwriter Simon Monjack was found late Sunday night at his residence in the Hollywood Hills, said.
The preliminary cause of death is natural causes, police spokesman Sgt. Louie Lozano told The Associated Press.
Lozano said investigators were still at the scene early Monday and he couldn't provide more details on the Monjack's death.
"They're conducting the investigation and they have not relayed any more information back to us yet," he said, according to Metromix.com
