Brittany Murphy: Celeb Death Cash Cow

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Brittany Murphy’s sudden death could’ve made someone a lot of money.

Her demise was totally unexpected, and Kelly Backst of Stiffs.com – a celebrity death pool website – says that could’ve meant big bucks for someone if they would’ve picked her in a pool.

Backst compares Murphy’s untimely end to Heath Ledger’s in terms of surprise, and says players on his site could’ve won as much as $2,500 had they picked her to die.

However, there’s still time for them to cash out with another “dark horse death.”

Since Cincinnati Bengals player Chris Henry died just days before Murphy, Backst says the “rule of three,” which states that big name celebs die in clumps of three, means the Grim Reaper may come a-knockin’ for one more star before 2009 is over.

He adds, “The chances of another death before the end of the year are pretty decent. I give it a 60 percent chance.”
