Brittany Murphy Lab Report Contested By Expert

Brittany Murphy, the young actress who died in 2009 at the age of 32, was originally declared dead as a result of pneumonia and anemia, but her father claims he had hair and tissue samples tested which showed high levels of heavy metals in her system. Now, an expert who looked over the lab reports says the claim that she was poisoned is “ridiculous”.

Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, says he believes strongly that his daughter was murdered, and that she spent the last few months of her life in fear of someone who was allegedly tapping her phone and following her. After she supported a Homeland Security whistleblower–Julia Davis–Murphy was reportedly put under surveillance by the government. When the samples that Bertolotti sent for testing came back with the heavy metals levels elevated, rumors began making the rounds that she had been given rat poison. That’s not necessarily the case, says director of forensic medicine at the University of Florida Dr. Bruce Goldberger.

“It’s ridiculous,” Goldberger said. “A hair test alone, without any clinical signs or symptoms, cannot be used to establish poisoning…She was a beautiful woman and likely had numerous hair treatments. Chemicals in the hair treatment would alter the chemistry of her hair sample.”

Bertolotti says he wants to find answers about his daughter’s death–and about the suspicious death of her husband, Simon Monjack, who died just five months after she did from similar symptoms–and clear her name.

“Vicious rumors, spread by tabloids, unfairly smeared Brittany’s reputation,” said Bertolotti. “My daughter was neither anorexic nor a drug junkie, as they repeatedly implied. Brittany and Simon were ridiculed by The Hollywood Reporter, when they complained of being under surveillance and in fear for their lives. I will not rest until the truth about these tragic events is told. There will be justice for Brittany.”

The L.A. Coroner has no plans to review the case.

    Within an hour of her death being announced publicly, many people were on stupid message boards making accusations about drugs. At least wait until the results of an autopsy report are announced before you start accusing someone of being a drug addict who overdosed. Some people’s sorry parents obviously never taught them about respect.

    At the moment it does sound plausible, on the balance of probabilities, that Murphy was murdered.

    It seems to me, on the available evidence, that the testimonies of those who knew her and her husband suggest that they were subject to ‘psychological procedures’ by the State.

    These procedures are calculated to perform two functions:

    1. To suggest that the victims’ mental faculties are faulty; and
    2. to ensure that the tactics applied by State operatives are deniable.

    The chief problem in western democracies has been: how to silence those whom the State has classified as ‘disloyal’. To put it bluntly, crimnal (much less civil law) alegations cannot be applied as they would be open to public examination (there can be no show trials, as it were).

    The clandestine procedures adopted by State agents in the West have been learnt from what happened to our American and British ‘diplomats’ in Moscow – the issues were reported by the British journalist Mr Luke Harding in the Guardian newspaper on the 23rd September 2011 (query).

    The ‘diplomats’ were subjected to ‘home penetrations’ – items moved, closed windows opened, burglar alarms disconnected et cetera.

    A minority of the ‘diplomats’ developed, over a short period of time, mental health problems – some committed suicide.

    What is fascinating about these techniques is that they are deniable (after all who is going to believe American citizens that, for example, they bought two pairs of trousers – both the same size – and two weeks later one pair is two sizes small?).

    The mental interference techniques were first developed in East Germany – documented by the Australian journalist Anna Funder in her work Stasiland.

    The Russian president, Putin a former senior officer in the KGB (now the FSB), approved them – hence the tours of duty cut short by British and American diplomats – ‘ill health’.

    In the West (US and UK) we no longer have to ignore ‘dissidents'; we do not need to take American citizens to a back-alley and stamp on them or (indeed!) take them to a polce station cell and claim ‘they fell down the stairs’.

    By applying these techniques the public is burdened with doubt (so are State inquiries) – the skeptic is our best friend – and no one will be able (shift to higher standard of belief) to be convinced: that your next door neighbour was murdered.

    Poor! Poor! Dr David Kelly.

    May I add, after having viewed the above interview, that it is quite possible for Murphy and her husband to be poisoned by heavy metals in rat granules.

    This is how it is done.

    State agents (police or government) leave extrenal doors open (usually whilst the suspect is asleep during the night).

    Open doors (external) and a light switched on (preferably a lamp) will attract a rat to the dwelling. In most countries – a rat will be eight feet away from a human.

    Once a rat can be assumed to have entered a property – Murphy and her husband will buy rat poison.

    Once they have bought the rat poison agents will enter and take granules of the rat poison (grind it in Murphy’s bowls) and wearing insulating gloves dissolve it in their milk, coffee, tea etc.

    Receipts will show that the subjects bought the rat poison.

    Perfect – only Murphy and her husband the public will blame.

    With your kind permission – may I add a few more techniques on how to break down the subject?

    If the subject has animals, cats and dogs are just right, then it is important to discover if the subject permits the animals to sleep on h/er bed. This can be discerned by carefully examining the fibres on the subjects bed.

    Once the operative has satisfied himself that animals sleep on the sbject’s bed – then it is logical to deposit grains of soil that should contain the eggs of moths – on the subject’s bed sheets. From the warmth of the subject’s body: these moths should hatch (biting the subject’s body).

    Over time – the subject’s mental faculties should degrade.

    Efficient monitoring of the subject’s mental state can be monitored only if the subject constantly looks into something like a mirror.

    My research shows that subjects do look into mirrors – but frustratingly the mirrors are placed in such positions that they cannot monitor nor record ‘intimate’ scenes – they seem only to be used for the subject to commit a ‘selfie’.

    The best place to fix a visual combined with an audio device is to check social research of the home habits of a member of the population that is to be monitored.

    We discovered that most people in the West, come home, and switch on the television.

    So television screens, in the subject’s home, must be unscrewed and micro cameras affixed.


    We watch ‘families’.

    Celibate priests – are boring.

    There are lots of holier-than-thou people in this world. You saw that after Murphy died. They act as if they are better than someone else because Murphy may have had troubles with drugs. Here is the reality of life — all people have something wrong with them. No one is perfect and we shouldn’t look down on others.

    Also, so many of the holier-than-thou people in this world are doing dirty things behind closed doors. The people we think are so great often are some of the worst people on this planet. They just never get caught doing something wrong. Heck, I know cops walking around that kill people and sell drugs, but arrest people for using the very drugs they are selling. Cops seldom go to prison or even get investigated. Want to find dirty people? I suggest you start first with those enforcing the law and dispensing “justice”. Want to find innocent people – start looking in your prisons. There are tons in there.

    At the end of the day, it is just sad when anyone dies under any circumstance. Life is precious.
