The details are still being released regarding the circumstances surrounding her death but Brittany Murphy is another young hollywood star who’s life was cut short.  Being an estate planner, when someone famous dies the first thing that comes to mind (for better or worse) is whether or not they wrote a will.  To many young people, death seems like a far off occurrence and estate planning is something that can always be put off until another day.”
