Simon Monjack, the widower of actress Brittany Murphy, has been found dead in the home that they shared together.
Simon was found by Brittany’s mother, Sharon, who called 911. That poor woman. She was also the one who found Brittany.
Law enforcement sources say Brittany’s mother, Sharon Murphy, found Monjack unconscious in the master bedroom around 9:30PM, and then called 911.
Monjack was pronounced dead sometime after paramedics arrived … when resuscitation efforts failed.
Monjack reportedly died from cardiac arrest, though nothing officially has been determined.
The similarities are remarkable. Murphy was found unconscious by her mother Sharon. Sharon found Simon unconscious as well. Murphy was found in the master bathroom. Simon was found in the master bedroom of the same home. Paramedics administered CPR to Simon. Simon administered CPR to Brittany. And they may have both died from cardiac arrest … five months apart.

While I was never a fan of Simon, I feel for Sharon. I cannot imagine the therapy and support she is going to need. My heart and prayers are with her.
