It has been reported that Simon Monjack, the husband of the late Brittany Murphy, was found dead on the night of May 23rd at his home in Hollywood Hills, California.

The 39-year-old screenwriter had died just five months after his wife died of pneumonia complicated by anemia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication.

According to the LA Police Department, Brittany's mother was the one who found Simon unconscious in the master bedroom at 9:24PM. The cause of death remains unknown and investigations are underway.
