Murphy was sad, pale and fragile in last press chat
The publication reports Murphy appeared to have an eerie premonition about her own death - promoting her new film Across The Hall days before her chat with Webber, the actress told another reporter she wanted to have beautiful blonde hair "in my next life".
Details about the cause and manner of Murphy's passing is pending investigation while the Los Angeles County Coroner awaits the results of toxicology and tissue tests.
Reports suggest the medication she was taking to beat her cold prompted the cardiac arrest which killed her

It's a big stretch to blame the pharmaceutical industry for the deaths of any of the individuals you name.
The abuse of pharmaceuticals is likely in some cases listed. It would seem that your criterion for blaming "big pharma" for someone's death is the mere fact that they may have been taking prescription drugs at the time of their death.
"Big pharma" is responsible for saving far more lives than it has taken and has made life safer and more satisfying for millions.
We don't really know, she may have just died from shower induced death.
Serpents are connected with poison and medicine. The snake's venom is associated with the chemicals of plants and fungi that have the power to either heal, poison or provide expanded consciousness (and even the elixir of life and immortality) through divine intoxication. Because of its herbal knowledge and entheogenic association the snake was often considered one of the wisest animals, being (close to the) divine. Its divine aspect combined with its habitat in the earth between the roots of plants made it an animal with chthonic properties connected to the afterlife and immortality.
The caduceus is sometimes used as a symbol for medicine or physicians (instead of the rod of Asclepius) even though the symbol has no connection with Hippocrates and any association with healing arts is something of a stretch; its singularly inappropriate connotations of theft, commerce, deception and death have provided fodder for academic humor:

Let's assume she did....How does that have any relevancy to the fact that they, her doctor, et cetera had her on all of these prescribed pills?
Do you know why they put "child-proof" lids on medications?
Was she a child or an adult? was she mentally handicapped?
I would guess an adult would realize that it is not safe to mix medications and take them on wholesale!
It is easy to go to one doctor, get a pain pill prescription, go to a second doctor and tell get a second pain pill prescription...so on and so forth until you have enough recreational medication to kill all your "pain and misery" that being rich and famous brings you.
Gimme a break, she was an idiot and there is no one to blame but her.
RIP and good riddence.
