Busy day today for the Los Angeles County Coroner who ruled on the cause of death for both Brittany Murphy and Casey Johnson.

First, Brittany Murphy.  The coroner said that Murphy, 32, died from multiple drug intoxication, pnuemonia, and iron deficiency anemia.  He said it was accidental.  The Clueless star was found unresponsive in her home on Dec. 20.  She was laid to rest four days later on Christmas Eve.

Second, Casey Johnson.  The coroner said that Johnson died of natural causes and that the specific cause of death was listed as diabetic ketoacidosis which is a condition caused by a shortage of insulin.  Johnson, 30, was found dead in her home Jan. 4.

May they both rest in peace.
