The actress passed away following a suspected cardiac arrest at her Hollywood home on Sunday. She was found collapsed in the shower by her mother, Sharon, and paramedics transferred her to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Now documents, obtained by TMZ.com, reveal how the star's husband, Simon Monjack, and her mother made frantic efforts to revive her before the paramedics arrived.
The notes, allegedly written by an official named as Investigator Blacklock, also reveal that the star "had been complaining of shortness of breath and severe abdominal pain" for seven to 10 days prior to her death. Details of the prescription medications found at the house are also listed.
The notes claim investigators found large amounts of prescription pills, including anti-seizure medication Topamax, Fluoxetine, which is used to treat depression, anti-anxiety medication Ativan, pain reliever Vicoprofen and Propranolol, used to treat hypertension.
The cause of Murphy's death has been "deferred" pending toxicological results, although an autopsy on her body was completed on Monday. Officials previously stated that they believe the star died from natural causes.
