Police: No Illegal Drugs Found in Anna's Room

2/9/2007 5:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Only prescription -- and not illegal drugs -- were found during an investigation of Anna Nicole Smith's room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel, this according to Seminole Police Chief Charlie Tiger.

At a press conference outside the Broward County Medical Examiner's office, Tiger revealed that "No evidence has been revealed to suggest that a crime has occurred," and that sworn statements were taken from everyone involved.

While authorities were unable to identify an official cause of death, Broward County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Joshua Perper suggested that the death might be due to either natural causes, medication, or a combination of natural causes and medication.

Perper was able to rule out several speculated causes of death, such as blunt force trauma, gunshot wounds or asphyxia, meaning she did not suffocate to death on her own vomit.

Perper revealed that a small amount of blood was found in Anna's stomach, which he says is a result of the terminal shock Smith experienced before she died. He also said that no pills or tablets were found in her stomach.

Perper also acknowledged the need for Anna's DNA (due to the ongoing paternity dispute) and said a "large sample" was taken.

According to Perper, an official cause of death would be determined in 3 to 5 weeks.

Everyone needs to mind there own business. Anna Nicole Smith was a beautiful person, and yeah maybe she did some odd things at time but she is still human.I hope she is resting in peace with her son, and God Bless her daughter.

I feel Howard K. Stern will get away with another, I pray that if Anna daughter isn't Howard they find the rear father before she comes into all of that money. Mother and son dead within months something is WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Methadone is not illegal. Killed her son, was in her refrigerator, was prescribed to her. Who can't believe Methadone was responsible? Only Stern would lead you to believe that.

Now we have the classic "Whose your daddy!" Definitely isn't Stern.

I would like to interject here that I do not know what happened and did not know Anna personally, like, duh. BUT, I did watch that show of hers and several stories about her while she was alive, the ones she gave her consent for, and anyone with two ears and a brain would unmistakeably know that she was exactly RIGHT about how EVIL her mother is. WHY ON EARTH WOULD SHE WANT TO BURY HER IN TEXAS, THE ONE PLACE SHE WANTED TO GET AS FAR AWAY FROM AS POSSIBLE? WHY WOULD SHE TAKE HER FROM HER SON? That was all I needed to hear about that woman to know she is NOT out for her own daughter's best interests, let alone the baby's best interests...and that's all I got to say about that!
