London, June 28(ANI): The mystery surrounding the death of Brittany Murphy's widow Simon Monjack increased twofold after it emerged that the producer and writer left a strange message on his own cell phone answer machine before he died last month.
Investigators found the weird message, left on the day Monjack died, in his voicemail on his phone.
"I need to go to the hospital. I have a fever," the Daily Express quoted him as saying in the message.
According to TMZ.com, Murphys' mother Sharon can be heard saying: Tell them you have a fever."
Last week Monjack's mother blamed Sharon of ignoring her requests to call a doctor in the hours before the filmmaker's death.
Sharon Murphy found the director unconscious at the Hollywood Hills home.
Later, doctors declared that he had suffered a cardiac arrest and pronounced him dead at the scene.
"I'd pleaded with Sharon over and over during those last hours to get medical help, to get him to a hospital, but she didn't... I'd call and he wasn't even able to respond. It was at this point that I demanded to speak to Sharon, and I told her, 'Please, please call the doctor. Get him to hospital. Please just get him some help'. She told me that she'd 'been through this before' and that Simon was over the worse," Monjack's mother Linda told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper.
However, Sharon Murphy's publicist, Roger Neal, has slammed Monjack's accusations, insisting she did everything she could to help the filmmaker. (ANI)
