The L.A county coroner announces Murphy’s cause of death as multiple drug intoxication, anemia, and pneumonia. It is an accidental death that could have been avoided. Assistant Chief Ed Winter:

This was a case of a person with pneumonia who was anemic (having a low blood count) who was taking medication when she should’ve been getting medical treatment.
