An official with the Los Angeles coroner’s office says actress Brittany Murphy, 32, may have died of natural causes. The actress, who got her start in the sleeper hit “Clueless” and rose to stardom in “8 Mile,” died Sunday in Los Angeles.


Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter says the cause of Murphy’s death “appears to be natural.”  He says Murphy apparently collapsed in the bathroom Sunday morning, and authorities are looking into her medical history. Winter says Murphy’s family is cooperating with the coroner’s investigation. He says an autopsy is planned for Monday or Tuesday.
