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."

where is the justice    

I just heard on court tv that Dr Wecht will not be at Daniel's inquest like Coward would like for him to be ..The original medical examiner in the Bahamas will give his original autopsy report and this Dr has stated that Dr Wecht 's report is WATERED DOWN!!!!!
This Dr is currently in Florida meeting with Dr Perper about similarities between Anna's and Daniels deaths. I don't this is over quite yet!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes! YES! then subpoena all the floors from here to the Bahamas where Anna spilled a gazillion pills, like she did in her suite at the Shelley vacation house.

Drug trafficking....yes! Maybe we should enlist the expertise of G. Ben Thompson on the subject!!

interested    

And who is surprised by the fact Mr. S's name is one the prescriptions. The only ones living in a dream world about his capabilities are his family and the Florida Police and Dr P. I don't even think his attorneys believe him any more.

PUT UP OR SHUT UP    

3617. 1: It is apparent the reason they are only attacking a few us is, we are a threat to them, we give them a challenge, and we won't go away just because they want us to!

2: They must lower themselves (if possible) and act like a bunch of no brain idiots, and thinking we haven't figured them all out to be just that.

3: If any of them really had a brain they would be in here posting on the matter at had and not just surfing the blogs trying to see who doesn't agree with them on there no issues nonsense!

4: All of us that are being seek-ed out just for other idiots amusement, if that's what it is, I say keep it up, none of us are going anywhere and we will continue to blog where ever, when ever and what ever we want on the issue at hand!!!!

3646. Bonnie Stern is as bad as her brother Howard, their parents must be awful, greedy, nasty people to have raised two children this terrible. I'm sure they realize everyone can see what kind of morals Bonnie and Howard have been brought up with.

UNBELIEVABLE    

A - shut the F up. Please don't post you're blah blah blah postings are boring. Just like I'm certain in person you are one big bore. Look at your posts. I feel sorry for your family. I mean your mother & father of course. Cause I know you don't have a man. You probably are jealous of Anna - because HKS would give you the time of day much less touch you. I would say mabe someday you will blossom but it sounds like you missed the boat. You sound like winter chicken.

I hope they announce the DNA testing Tuesday .... Dr E gets a reprimand or worse just because she should of known better and leaving without monitoring Anna ... Virgie is told NO .... Lin Wood sues the whole media circus, Greta and Nancy Grace espeically ... OQuinn goes back to rehab ... HKS moves into another damn house cuz I'm sick of hearing about it ... Inquest would just pick another jury so we can get on with it ... Open the case in Florida back up so they can close it AGAIN for lack of evidence so ppl would shut up about it ... Tell us if Anna really had lupus or whatever was causing the seisuzes and pain that called for so damn much medication in the first place ... Put a camera cam in Dannielynns room so WE can ALL see she is FINE ... Last but certainly not least ... Anna and Daniel RIP and Dannielynn live out the rest of her life without knowing anything that anyone has said on these boards against her mother! Yep! I think that would do it for me! Good Nite

Forensic Doc    

Chloral hydrate:
The usual lethal dose is 10 g; however, fatalities have occurred with as little as 4 g and survival has been documented after the ingestion of 30 g of chloral hydrate. Chloral hydrate should be used with caution in patients who are mentally depressed, suicidal or have a history of drug abuse or dependence. In Victorian England, a solution of chloral and alcohol constituted the infamous "knockout drops" or "Mickey Finn."A Mickey Finn is any drug laced drink given to an unsuspecting victim in order to incapacitate them (also called knockout drops). We now know that Choral hydrate mixed with Valium is such a deadly combination that it is sometimes used to euthanize critically ill patients.Overdose symptoms may include:
deep stupor
dilation of blood vessels
fall in blood pressure
fall in body temperature
slowed respiration
In a severe overdose, death usually occurs within 5 to 10 hours. Although chloral hydrate is still used medically today, typically in the elderly or young, its use declined with the introduction of the barbiturates. Most the time it's only prescribed if the person can not take benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax, etc). SIGNS OF OVERDOSE: Confusion (continuing); convulsions (seizures); difficulty in swallowing; drowsiness (severe); low body temperature ; nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain (severe); shortness of breath or troubled breathing; slow or irregular heartbeat; slurred speech; staggering; weakness (severe). Do not take chloral hydrate if you are taking anticoagulants ('blood thinners') such as warfarin (Coumadin), antihistamines, furosemide (Lasix), medications for depression or seizures, sedatives, sleeping pills, tranquilizers, and vitamins.

As you can read it is a very volatile drug, and yes maybe it was given to her without her knowledge maybe not, maybe she just decided that the loss of her son and possibly she was going through postpartum depression that she just felt she would be where she knew she would live forever. She lived and died like her # 1 Idol Marilyn Monroe and she is getting the same publicity and suspicions. I do feel sorrow for her and her misunderstood life but I really feel sorrow for her daughter. Everyone only wants her for the possible money she may inherit,but did anyone think what if she gets nothing then lets see who really wants to fight for her.

Lin Wood is suppose to do a press conference sometime next week, I'm assuming to let everyone know weather or not he is taking on Howard's case and taking on the media.

Mr. Marshall deceased. Son of Mr. Marshall deceased. Daniel deceased. Anna deceased. Howard last man standing.

Alot of people contributed to Anna's death. Anytime you take drugs for every mood change you are bound to overdose. I do beleive HKS knew the drugs would impair her and keep her under his control. He calculated the whole move to the Bahamas and knew the laws there would somewhat protect him.

How did Anna get to be the face for SLIM FAST given her reputation? Janet Jackson's breast fall out and advertisers dropped her like a bad habit.

I hope the media will do more investagating into Danile's life in California when the inquest begins in the Bahamas. Is there a doctor that perscribed methadone for Daniel, where are the people that were around him after they fled to the Bahamas. If howard can't produce the doctor or the script for methadone for him, someone gave it to him, will he protect Anna or say it was her, to save his lieing ass. Did they test his hair to see if he was on methadone for quite awhile. Were some of the drugs found in his system the ones with Howards name on them? I think Howard is in some real trouble in the Bahamas, and he knows it, can't wait for it to get started, will he say he was just doing what Daniel wanted, he was as strong willed as his mother, and after all they legal perscription drug, so that makes ok. He was everybodys helper, don't be upset with him.

I think Howard is responsible for Danial and Anna's death.
What kind of man lives off a woman, a pimp. He knows he is not Danielynn's dad and is scum for holding up the truth. anyone with nothing to hide would sit down shut up and let the inquest go forward, what is he hiding? maybe that he killed both of them, I think he will get away with it. I do hope that Larry birkhead is smart enough to fight the will and keep Howard from ever getting one penny of the money after he takes his daughter from the kidnapper Howard.

Is this a mushroom trip, Howard K. Stern? If you know to ask such a question then you obviously have experienced it!
