Drugs That Killed Anna Rx'ed to Howard K., Others

3/31/2007 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole SmithThe Broward County Medical Examiner confirmed that none of the 11 drugs that were found in Anna Nicole Smith's hotel room were prescribed to Smith.

FOX News anchor Greta Van Susteren obtained documents from Dr. Joshua Perper's office which shows that of the 11 drugs, eight were prescribed to Howard K. Stern, two were prescribed to Alex Katz and one was prescribed to Anna's personal shrink, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich. We don't know who Katz is, but Perper acknowledged one thing that was clear -- Dr. Eroshevich wrote all 11 prescriptions.

Perhaps most interesting, the chloral hydrate that was the major cause of Anna's death (and was prescribed to Stern) was in a duffel bag in the hotel room. As Greta said, Anna was too weak to even get out of bed to go to the bathroom, so how did she get out of bed to rummage through the duffle bag and get the chloral hydrate? Van Susteren pressed Perper for an answer; the doctor said he asked Stern, Eroshevich and the bodyguard if they gave her the drugs and they all said they didn't.

Perper also acknowledged it was a bad idea for Anna to take sedatives in the morning, given she was already too weak to get out of bed. Perper said even if someone else gave her the drugs, "It's not wise for sure, but it's not homicide."

OK Dr. Perper let us go one step furthur..The chloral Hydrate was a liquid and had to be measired by spoonfuls..Now how did a person who was so druuged do this by herself? Maybe that is why she took too much trying to measure it or maybe that was the brown stain on her blanket when someone gave it to her and she tried not to take it but was already too weak..Ok Dr. Perper now why is this not neglient homicide? Also how can she have any of these drugs in her system legally as none were prescribed to her? isn't this breaking the law? Why isn't someone getting charged here? This is so dammed rediculous..Perper says she was the queen bee but even the queen bee needs to be tended to when incable of doing it herself..This is wher e the line is crossed and Dr. Perper should come up with a suspicious death at the very least and a coroner's inquest should be held...Come on Dr. Perper do the right thing!
You know she was no capable of taking this dru herself. Now do something about it!

Isn't it against the law to give someone medication prescribed for you? Is it not also against the law to knowingly let someone take your medication even if you did not give it to him or her?
I see a lot of illegal activity here, which makes me wonder why the police have not arrested someone. You can bet if this was Blue Collar John Doe's house with all these drugs and the same situation there would already have been charges of some kind against someone if not all that were involved.

my own damn opinion    

I totally disagree with you............Greta is the
greatest and ucan bet yo bottom dollar she will get to the bottom of this wine

4652. Greta is obsessed with ANS meds...and trying to prove
HKS guilty. Couldn't figure why she was so manic until I googled her
to find out that she is a Scientologist. Need I say more.I'm through
with Greta show. She used to be objective....her Scientology has made
her subjective. Posted at 12:22AM on Mar 31st 2007 by sooz

This is a cover up. Howard Stern has never been asked if he took drugs as well. He probably did and no one has investigated him and all those in the room. They are ALL a bunch of druggies. Druggies stick together and have the Queen Bee pay for all. It is SICK !!!!!!!! The more I hear about it all the more it makes me sick. Howard Stern......... you are guilty as sin and think you will get away with all the lies !!!!!! Anna was a sick drug addict but they all are also. Birds of a feather, stick together. I dont hang around with druggies so why are they all together? Cause theyre allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll druggies.
