The LAPD has said that Simon Monjack, husband of the late Brittany Murphy, was found dead in his Hollywood Hills home late Sunday night.

The cause of death is unknown and an investigation is still ongoing at the house. The screenwriter’s death comes just 5 months after Murphy’s December 20th passing. The actress died of a cardiac arrest brought on by pneumonia complicated by an iron deficiency, anemia and multiple drug intoxication.
