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."

guess    

Anna and Stern had a comittment ceremony during which she jumped into the water only 18 days after having a c-section, which put her in danger from an infection. Has anyone suggested that this was unhealthy/unwise on Stern's part for allowing it?

Bring it on!    

Well, I almost threw up my dinner while watching the Stern siblings once again on ET. How dare they move into Ben Thompson's home so that they can pretend to be Dannielynn's only family. I guess ET is paying Howard a fortune for this footage.

How long will they keep up this sickening charade?
I know it must be killing poor Larry and Virgie. I do pray that once Larry gets his child that he and Virgie will sue Howard in civil court for putting them through this horrific nightmare.

3560. There is an issue that has been mis-labeled throughout the media and all the attorneys. Howard K. Stern did not "enable" Anna Nicole Smith; he EXPLOITED her. According to the leading experts in the country on the issue of Sexual Abuse by Professionals, Stern was Anna's attorney and as such there is an INHERENT imbalance in power, authority and trust. Licensed professionals are forbidden to enter into a sexual relationship with their clients or patients because of this imbalance in the relationship. Rules and boundaries are put in place for professionals for a reason. That reason has played itself out in front of the worlds eyes. Through Stern's own testimony on the stand, he sets out the exploitation that Anna endured. His objective is to meet his own needs. He is cunning and subtle enough to create the appearance that he was meeting Anna's needs. A close look reveals the truth. He is a licensed attorney that was practicing in the capacity of a psychiatrist by obtaining and administering drugs to Anna. She trusted him as a child would trust a parent. There is a criminal statute in California that could apply to his actions. Google "Professional Exploitation" and check it out.... The Psychiatrist-Friend (traveling drug dealer) that prescribed the drugs in Stern's name; Stern obtaining the drugs; and Stern administering the drugs creates the appearance of a conspiracy - whether intentional or not. This is so far from over and there will be a list of professionals that crossed boundaries to further their own causes. Stern is a master exploitive professional. He violated the rules of his profession and experts in the area of exploitation by professionals should be consulted so that the public can know the real issue is not "enabling," but egregious "exploitation."

IMHO she was undergoing Methadone withdrawal..never had the flu...tough to explain to ER Docs. This entire event has had a bad smell since day one.

"The prescription drugs were in Moe's room which would have meant that for ANS get the drugs (and remember she could barely even walk) she would have had to cross the living room into Moes room and get the drugs out and replace them without making a mess. Then stagger back across the large living room and back into her bedroom, get in bed, cover up her self, including covering up her whole head."

===============================================================
Is there a document somewhere that points to the 'drug bag' being in Moes room? Ive been hearing this, yet no one points out from where the information came from.

quite clever how they administered "therapeutic levels" of several of the same class drugs and topped it off with the drug rarly utilised and rarely tested for to top her off.

that way it looks like the drugs were therapeutic levels when in fact it is one big OD of the same class of drug!

AstroFacts Volume 1

Anna Nicole Smith
* Anna Nicole's son Daniel Smith and Larry Birkhead share the same January 22 birthday (Birkhead was born in 1973 and Daniel in 1986).

* J. Howard Marshall was born on Jan 24, 1905.

Also of interest...
* Howard K. Stern was born on Nov 29, 1968, one day and one year after Anna Nicole who was born Nov 28, 1967.

* Baby Dannielyn Hope was born on Sept 7, 2006 on a lunar eclipse- this weekend's lunar eclipse triggers her chart big time. Her 8th house Moon/ Uranus combo in Pisces talks about a mother who dies suddenly with drugs being involved.

* If 4:02 AM birthtime is correct, baby Dannielyn has Jupiter in Scorpio in the 4th house, leaving some astrologers to wonder if the wacky possibility of Marshall's frozen sperm being used by Anna to impreganate isn't that wacky after all.
