The coroner will pick up the body today and start an investigation as will the LAPD.

There is another statement issued by the family through a rep:"The sudden loss of our beloved Brittany is a terrible tragedy. She was our daughter, our wife, our love and a shining star. We ask you to respect our privacy at this time."TMZ
is also reporting that Brittany was sick and vomiting the morning she died with 'flu-like' symptoms that she was taking prescriptions for. A source tells TMZ that there were 'a lot' of prescriptions in the house for Brittany, her husband and her mother. Brittany also had Type 2 Diabetes
Her husband, Simon Monjack
initially told Cedars Sinai
he did not want an autopsy done, but the LAPD and Coroner's office want differently. Odd that he didn't want one, and, in my opinion, makes himself look suspicious. Why wouldn't he want to know what killed his wife?Brittany
was found in the shower with a significant amount of vomit in the immediate area according to TMZ. That is so sad. This whole thing is so unbelievable. Too young. Much too young.
