What happened to Phil Hartman
Brynn was believed to be coming to LA to become a singer, but her work never resurfaced. Hartman tried to get her job but nothing worked. Soon enough, she started taking alcohol and drug, and sometimes, Phil has to remove his children from the house due to her slurs.
Brynn and Christine Zander arrived at an Italian restaurant on May 27, 1998, and when Brynn returned, she had a heated conversation with Phil. Phil went to bed shortly afterwards.
Hartman was shot in the head by Brynn, who then walked to the house of her friend Ron Douglas and confessed everything. During the journey back to the house of Brynn, she called another friend and told them all about it.
Douglas immediately called 911 after reaching their house. They removed the children and Douglas from the house.
What about his wife?
While the cops was searching the house and retrieving them, Brynn had locked herself in the bedroom. She died with a gun.
When Christine returned she took cocaine and was alcoholic, according to sources. She was also taking anti-depressants for a long time.
Pfizer and Zoloft, who submitted samples of antidepressants to Brynn, have filed a lawsuit against Brynn''s brother.
Where are his children?
Katharine Omdahl and his wife Mike Wright raised the two Hartman children. Hartmans will stipulate that every kid would acquire cash north of the age of 25. The absolute value of Hartman''s domain was estimated at $1.23 million.
