Brittany Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti , wants to exhume her body more than four years after her mysterious death to solve the mystery of her death.

The 87-year-old, who had paid for a private toxicology report that detected the metals, found 10 heavy metals that are contained in many over-the-counter rat poisons in samples of her hair and is now convinced that his daughter was poisoned, the Daily Express reported.

The '8 Mile' star's British husband of two years, screenwriter, director and producer Simon Monjack, 40, died in the same house five months later from exactly the same causes.

Bertolotti said that police have refused to ­reopen the cases and he feels that someone is lying and there has been a cover-up somewhere and he won't let anyone get away with it.

California law allows relatives to order an exhumation at their own expense and Bertolotti will make the agonising decision to open Murphy's grave if his latest plea fails.
