Simon Monjack's dead body was found Sunday night — in the same Hollywood Hills home in which his wife, Brittany Murphy, collapsed and died just five months ago.
The Los Angeles County Coroner's office confirmed Monday morning that Monjack, 39, a British screenwriter, was pronounced dead. Law enforcement sources told the Hollywood Reporter that Murphy's mother, Sharon, discovered Monjack's body around 9:30 p.m. and called 911.
"We have detectives at scene," Sgt. Louie Lozano told the Los Angeles Times Sunday night. "They are conducting their investigation. Once we have further information, we will provide it."
Police have said the cause of death appears to be natural causes.
Murphy died at 32 of pneumonia complicated by an iron deficiency, anemia and multiple drug intoxication last December. Monjack discovered her body on the bathroom floor, according to notes from an investigator with the L.A. corner's office. He "attempted to revive the decedent by placing her in the shower and running the water."
The two wed in 2007 and had no children.
