Howard K. Stern Interviewed by Cops

2/12/2007 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Howard K. SternTMZ has learned Bahamian authorities met with Howard K. Stern on Monday morning. Police sources say two subjects are on the table -- Stern's allegation of a break-in at the house in which he's staying, and the investigation into Daniel Smith's death.

Stern alleged that the owner of the house -- G. Ben Thompson -- broke into the premises and changed the locks after Anna Nicole died. We're told Thompson's position is that it's his home and Stern has no right to be there. Police wanted to speak with Stern about the allegation.

But law enforcement sources also tell TMZ that the cops want to re-interview Stern about the death of Anna Nicole's son last September. This comes after TMZ obtained a photo of Anna Nicole's refrigerator -- which held a large container of methadone.

We've learned at least one witness will testify at the coroner's inquest into Daniel's death that Stern supplied Daniel with methadone and then flushed the remaining stash down a toilet after Daniel died.

Howard Stern worked for Anna's original law office that was working on her Marshall lawsuit. Howard was given the job of babysitter while she did interviews and went on about her day. Her real attorneys did not want her saying and doing things that would affect their case. Little by little Howard weaseled his way into her life and quit the law firm. Why do you think everytime she is sued or sues he does not represent her? He is a hack. She hired competent lawyers, not him.

I think this guy Stern is a creep and maybe even a killer. The drug methadone is not something that you can get on a whim. This is not something that would be prescriped for anyone unless they were trying to kick a heroin addiction. It would also be supervised closely by a physician. The amounts of the three drugs - prozac, methadone and lexipro, in Daniel's system were so large and any combination of only two of these drugs would result in death. This is beyond suspicious. Stern is a liar and a manipulator. I don't think he is the father of the baby and that's why he is fighting the paternity test. If he really was the father, he would gladly take the test to have the other guy out of his hair. If Anna's body turns up with the same drugs as her son, they they need to arrest Stern. The two of them dying only five months apart under such similar circumstances is bizarre and not coincidental. If they can find a way to get the baby away from him, that would be a good idea, too. He is not fit to be taking care of anyone after he shamelessly stood by and watched this woman self-destruct without intervening to ger her help.

I don't think she used the old man's sperm; remember she tried to tell G. Ben Thompson it was his (i'm sure her reasoning for doing so was opportunistic). If it was his she would have long used that as the trump card in the inheritance case... Just a thought...

But I agree with the person who said it is very likely that HKS rmoved the computer from the premesis himself; he did go back to the Bahamas Thursday night...

repost    

You know it has been reported that somone Broke in to the house and stole jewlery and pictures computers and things.

And it was said I believe it was by a AP reporter outside Gibsons mothers house that someone in a black truck took the baby bed and car seat to Shane Gibsons mothers house.When the driver seen the reporter he drove on past.

I found this.
http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=2866264

On page one it says:

Outside the gated mansion in Nassau, Smith's attorney Wayne Munroe told reporters he had retaken possession of the estate and filed a robbery complaint with police over computer equipment and other personal effects allegedly taken out.

on page 2 it says this:

Pinder said earlier that Bahamian Immigration Minister Shane Gibson's mother was permitted into the waterfront home late Friday to remove some of Smith's personal effects. The government official was a friend of Smith's.

So which is it robbery or what??

I think that the nurse and Howard are in this together. Maybe the nurse drugged Anna and tried to make it look like suicide thats why she called howard before she called 911 any normal person would call 911 before calling someone else. To me it makes sense that they were in it together cause they prolly thought they were going to get Anna's fortune so they would kill her son first then her so no one except the baby would be left to take her money and if Howard is proven to be the father of dannielynn (hope not) then he will also have access to that money

SO MANY NASTY, ILL COMMENTS TOWARDS A DECEASED PERSON. I WOULD BET ANNA NICOLE'S SO-CALLED FRIEND THE DOCTOR IS TO BE BLAMED FOR ANNA'S DEATH AND HER SON'S DEATH. SHE WAS THE ONE THAT PRESCRIBED DANIELS MEDICATION'S. THE POLICE SHOULD BE INVESTIGATING HER NOT HOWARD.
JUST COINCIDENTAL THAT SHE WAS WITH BOTH PEOPLE AND THEY BOTH DIED. I BET SHE HAS ALOT TO DO WITH THE DEATH.

Doesn't Howard's behavior seems very strange?....Strange as he's talking about not wanting to be on this earth. The next headline could be another death, his, the baby, or other family memebers. The man is unstable- get the baby somewhere safe!!!!

Ever since the Anna Nicole Show, I have had my doubts about HKS. I also believe that he knew about all the drugs Anna was on, and he did nothing. If he was giving her drugs the baby should be taken away from him, if he was too stupid to know ANS was on drugs, then the baby should definitiely be taken away from him.

I think the death of Anna's son was so hard for her that she very well may have just taken her own life because of the pain and heartache she was going through. I wouldn't say Howard K. Stern killed either one of them but he could have contributed to their deaths if he indeed was giving them different kinds of prescription drugs! I believe the baby is Larry Birkhead's because I think the baby looks like him, but I also believe until some kind of paternity test is done that the baby should be with Anna's mother. I think people should not be so critical towards Howard Stern at this time because regardless of what is going on he just lost a person he cared for very much and I am sure he is going through a very hard time right now. I also think it was sad the relationship that Anna and her mother had because they haven't got along for so long and now with Anna's sudden death her mother probably has so many unanswered questions and they will never be answered because shes gone! I thought Anna Nicole was a beautiful person no matter what anyone else says but I also think she got caught up in drugs and that is ultimatley what ended her life, I really think she should have took in to consideration what her mom was trying to tell her for so many years and maybe if she would have got some kind of help she would still be here today! It's sad that her son's life was so short with Anna and its sad that DannieLynn will grow up without her mother. Hopefully they just do the paternity test and figure out who is the dad already so that poor baby girl can be with her biological father already.

Before anna died we never saw a picture of Howard holding the baby, and anna did not want Howard to cut the umbilical cord at the time of delivery. Even Anna did not treat him like he was the father of the baby. Also why is he allowed in anna's home before an inventory of her jewelry and other belonging are taken for the baby's inheritance. Before she met Howard she went to rehab and got clean, then howard became in control of her and was back on drugs. A coincidence, I think not.

Theres only one reason why that stern won't take a paternity test and that's because he is not the father. duh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Common sense! what has this country went to hell in a handbag? I honestly believe he killed both anna and her son for the money! All this red tape is foolish. They have the means to prove it one way or another so why the delay???? It's all bull crap!
Sincerely Deborah

I agree, why would this man who loved her, sit next to her, and obviously under the infulence hold and care for a baby! Howard wanted the son and her out of the way, for all that money. And if your that sick, your not in Flordia looking for a boat, but perhaps drugs!

As far as the picture of her and the imigration minister; I would not buy into that photo as being scandalous in a sexual way; obviously someone else took the picture and was standing right there; it could be that it was taken soon after she had the baby.

But I do think the Bahamian government should be embarassed and are probably very sorry they allowed them as residents and all the drama that ensued; I think there has been some palm greasing on their end to accomodate her...
