Brittany Murphy's cause of death isn’t being reinvestigated despite new toxicology reports suggesting she could have been poisoned.

Brittany Murphy's cause of death isn’t being reinvestigated.

Despite new toxicology reports suggesting the Clueless actress may have been poisoned in December 2009, the Los Angeles County coroner has announced there are no plans to reopen the case because they’re yet to receive the new reports.

Her husband, Simon Monjack, died just five months later and both deaths were attributed to acute pneumonia and severe anaemia; Brittany’s also involved multiple drug intoxication.

Chief coroner investigator and chief of operations Craig Harvey told The Huffington Post in an email, "The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has no plans to reopen our inquiry into the deaths. We stand by our original reports.

"We have not been presented any [third] party lab test results for analysis, so we are unable to comment on publicised reports of private lab tests."

Mr Harvey also spoke with Brittany's father, Angelo Bertolotti, who hasn't provided adequate documentation yet, after reportedly securing the release of the 32-year-old's hair, blood and tissue for independent analysis.

The results are said to have shown the presence of 10 heavy metals commonly found in rat poison.

There have been many conspiracy theories surrounding the two deaths, including mould and murder by government spies.

Mr Harvey added, "We take any allegations of homicide seriously, but just screaming about a test result without allowing us to look at the test result and what it means is not going to be helpful."

A toxicology expert looked at the results and called the findings "ridiculous" in an interview with CNN, saying multiple dye treatments alone would change the chemistry of Murphy's hair.

Assistant chief coroner Ed Winter told officials could exhume Brittany's body with a court order if evidence is presented showing she didn't die of natural causes. Although her father could have the body exhumed privately without a court order.
