Lifetime implies murder in new 'Brittany Murphy Story' trailer


The official cause of actress Brittany Murphy's 2009 death is cardiac arrest, but Lifetime's upcoming movie about her life suggests she may have died by a more sinister means.

In the new trailer for "The Brittany Murphy Story," the belated actress, played by Amanda Fuller appears the victim of some major turmoil, downing pills and afraid for her life. With one character saying Murphy was poisoned at the end of the trailer, it really looks like this movie will focus on the shady people in Murphy's life and whether murder was the real way she died, as well as her rise to fame.

Take a look at the dramatic trailer above. "The Brittany Murphy Story" airs Saturday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
