Coroner completes Brittany Murphy autopsy

Results will be delayed until toxicology tests are done

The Los Angeles County coroner's office said it has completed an autopsy of Brittany Murphy but will defer releasing a cause of death until after toxicology tests are complete.

It said there was no evidence of trauma to Murphy's body.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter says the autopsy was completed Monday.

Murphy died Sunday after collapsing in the bathroom of her Hollywood Hills home. Winter said her family told coroner's investigators she had been suffering from flulike symptoms in the days before her death.

The 32-year-old appeared in films such as "Clueless," "8 Mile" and "Girl, Interrupted."
