Anna Nicole: Narcotics Found in Hotel Room

2/9/2007 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith: click for photos
Suspicion that drugs killed Anna Nicole Smith was heightened today as investigators found illegal narcotics as well as prescription medications in Anna Nicole Smith's room at the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Fla., according to reports this morning.

WCBS-TV in New York reports that drugs were found in Smith's hotel room, and a toxicology report that would determine whether those drugs caused her death has not yet been released. An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.

Did Anna Nicole Choke on Her Own Vomit?


According to another report this morning, when an "employee" of Anna Nicole Smith found her in her hotel room, she appeared to have choked on her own vomit. The "credible source" cited by Access Hollywood says that when the employee encountered Smith in her room, she pulled back a sheet and discovered that the model-actress had choked. The same source, says Access, claims that Smith took a "children's sedative" and that she "kept passing out" before her death.

Smith's Final Moments Sell for $500,000


The footage of Anna Nicole Smith's last moments sold for more than $500,000, just hours after Smith's death in Hollywood, Fla., according to Splash News & Picture Agency, as reported by FOX News. The two-minute video, according to sources, shows paramedics working on the unresponsive actress, and her body being wheeled out on a gurney. The paramedics, according to a producer who viewed it, appear to pull the gurney back out of the ambulance to administer CPR again. But, adds the producer, the body is not readily identifiable as Anna Nicole Smith.

Battle Over $1.6 Billion Fortune Brewing


Now that both contestants in the battle of J. Howard Marshall's $1.6 billion fortune have died, the future of the suit is in some question. The Los Angeles Times reports that the suit is likely to continue in the name of Smith's infant daughter, Dannielynn Hope, even though the paternity is the subject of additional legal action. The Marshall family lawyer still contends that Smith "is entitled to nothing," and Smith's lawyer in the case says that it's hard to know what will happen next. "Things were sort of up in the air before this," he said. The case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which then sent it back to Federal court.

Chance brought us together, our love
couldn't keep us apart. We loved, we
laughed, we shared a connection that
couldn't be broken, regardless of the
challenges. I loved her in life and I will
love her long after.

Our daughter, Dannnielynn is a
constant reminder of the love we
shared and the life that we desired.

My heart is broken, my tears are
endless. She called me her angel, I
called her my sweet potato, and every
night before we went to sleep, she
made me say to her...........

A tragic ending for everyone involved, especially poor little Dannielynn. Anna Nicole lived a different life than most of us, and was often misunderstood. She wanted what any girl wanted, only she was in the spotlight constantly. I am devastated that she will not have the opportunity to raise her daughter. Her Mother was one charismatic chick, who did exactly what she wanted to do and be damned what anyone else thought about it. That is quite admirable in an age when women are scorned for acting like anything but a proper lady. She had a lot of crap to deal with, but she didn't hide from it. She fought tooth and nail her whole life. The world lost one tough girl when it lost Anna Nicole. She may have marched to a different drummer but we all loved her just the same.

The whole tale is sad. Unfortunately she didnt listen to those that loved and cared about her thus losing her direction. Too many vultures putting pressure on her, including cousins, mom and the alledged father of her last child. It is eerie that she idolized Marilyn Monroe and most likely died in a similar fashion. Money can not make you happy UNLESS you want/try to be.

no way    

Someone needs to shut Anna's mother up; Dannielynn's mother was a strong woman who in her last days was enduring. The death of her beloved son; the birth of a child; a family who was fighting their fathers death wish; and then this low life who is trying to use a sweet baby for his financial gain. Please idiots don't screw up this sweet baby for your own gain. I hope that we hear wonderful things about Dannielynn as she grows.

well its very sad to here about what happen to Anna Nicole Smith, but they nobody eles to blame but all those people out there that were always dippin into her life like if it was there bussiness they wouldnt let her be! always houndinng her about the paternity the birth of her daughter the tragic death of her only 20 year old son especially! they dictated to her so much about her personal bussiness that she drove herself to a tragic death she was only 39, still young and did her thang, its just goes to show you that fame comes with a price and unfortunetley the price of losing her life! but in the end she is survived by her 5 month old beautiful daughter which she will live on forever and carrie her mothers memory in her heart no matter what, and hopefully finds out who her real dad is. God bless Anna Nicole Smith's soul and her heart and know that you will never be forgotton but will always be missed we love you Anna Nicole Smith and may you find peace with your son!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

I am appalled at the lack of taste displayed by "let's get this party started." Her lifestyle was not conventional, but ANS was still one of God's children, and now a little daughter has to grow up without her mother. Show a little respect. What the heck, show a lot of respect.

She lived an outrageous life, that's for sure. I think what made her special was that you could see she was a genuinley beautiful person inside and out. I never knew her, but I got the sense that she was the type of person that could brighten the day and would be a lot of fun to be around. On the flip side, these people who post these nasty negative comments are the types of people who bring nothing good to the world and live miserable lives. God Bless you Anna Nicole.

With love,

It is so tragic that her life ended when it did. She had no idea of her personal worth which is why she struggled so much. She still needed people to validate her and felt so much betrayal instead. He innocent heart made her feel all of the hurt so deeply. She could not understand why people would treat her badly, or dishonestly. Her "soulmate" adored her so much. IN all the clips on TV he always had a protective arm around her and his attention is always devoted to her. He rarely took his eyes off of her. I hope Howard does end up with that baby girl. He seems so devoted and from the news reports, it was reported that he was so distraught he could not put coherrent words together after her death. Such a tragedy and such a loss.

She was a survivor, I think lost her whole life, but a survivor UNTIL Daniel died. Any interview you saw of her after his death, you could just see the saddness in her eyes, losing a child is the very worst thing that could happen to a mother, especially a mother who loved that child as much as Anna did Daniel. Even though she now had Danilynn, no other child could ever take the place of one who has died. It's very hard thing to deal with, especially after giving birth when your hormones are all over the place anyway, depression sets in more easily. My heart goes out to her and her struggle through life, I didn't admire her work, but she was one BEAUTIFUL woman.
