Anna's Cause of Death Revealed

3/26/2007 11:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After performing an autopsy, it became clear that Anna Nicole Smith died of an accidental overdose of medication.

Dr. Joshua Perper, the Medical Examiner for Broward County, just announced the 39-year-old former Playboy Playmate was taking a number of drugs, including methadone and anti-anxiety drugs, among others.

Anna did not take methadone the day she died, said Perper, but there was evidence she had taken it several days earlier.

Dr. Perper concluded that it was combined drug intoxication, including anxiety and depression medication, Valium, Ativan and antihistamines, that contributed to Smiths' death. She had also taken chloral hydrate, a strong sedative, which was a major component in her death.

NOW THAT WE'VE CLEARED THAT UP, HOW ABOUT HAVING THAT STERN CREATURE TAKE AN OVERDOSE.
(A SUDDEN THOUGHT: IS IT POSSIBLE HE WAS THE ONE WHO GAVE IT TO HER?) (HMMMMMMMMM.)

Now, the legal ramblings will continue about the house, Daniel's
inquest and the baby, Dannielynn.Anna wasnt killed, she was neglected
by those who were around her. She was not provided the "tough love"
that she needed. Her mom walked away from her, Larry gave up on her
and those around her let her kill herself with medications that were
supplied in large amounts....Instead of pointing fingers at one
another the family and friends need to look to themselves and ask
what could I have done.

Could a trip to the hospital have saved her life?

Finally -- may the poor woman RIP. Hopefully everyone who thinks Dr. Perper is wrong never has to deal with pain.

Dr. Krid, a Nurse, the person Anna trusted most in her life, Howard K. Stern - they really took good care of ANNA - didn't they?

GET DANNIELYNN AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE -

Daniel died, Anna died - I don't know about you, but my sister & I called 911 even though our mother told us not to call them and we have saved her life from dying twice because we did not want her to die - today she is happy to be alive.
