Brittany Murphy's death caused by pneumonia, drugs

brittany-murphy-400.jpgBrittany Murphy's death was the result of pneumonia exacerbated by drug intoxication, the Los Angeles County coroner says.

The coroner's office released its report on the "Clueless" star's Dec. 21 death on Thursday (Feb. 4), and it lists the primary cause as community acquired pneumonia. The report also notes, however, that "multiple drug intoxication" was what caused the "injury" leading to her accidental death -- i.e., the drugs in her system made things worse.
