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."

Donna Hogan started this book before Anna passed so I'm sure she'll be changing a
few things and adding a few things. It does seems Anna didn't have very much contact with her family but she did call her Mother when Daniel Passed. She didn't have to, so I think she really wanted to have contact with her in some way. Virgie was on her back about the drugs and of course, Anna didn't like that so she avoided those conversations and the same with Larry. HKS is the only one that did not give Anna any static about it and seemed to laugh about it in the clown video. That video still makes me so sick. HKS thought he was watching Anna and taking care of her but he wasn't and of course he could not watch her 24/7...Anna needed rehab and needed someone strong enough to make her do that. Of course they would of been out of her life forever but at least she would be alive right now, if someone had stepped up to the plate, including Moe etc..
I work on a Hospital floor where we have Barker Act ppl that overdose. Of course they hate the ones involved at the time but after a few days, they thank those that put them there. A sitter is hired to sit with them 24/7 and when they leave, they are so happy. They come up and even thank us at the nurses station. It was sad the other day, a 24 yr old came in and didn't make it. No one stepped in early enough to Barker Act him so now they have to bury him. If Donna's book came out before Anna passed, it may of helped her see that she was loved by family and friends and it may have shocked her to reality. So I wouldn't come down on Donna too much. You just never know what the book would of done. I watched the Phil show. It made me mad that Bonnie Stern put down Donna. WHat did Bonnie do to help save Anna?. Bonnie only knows what she heard from a woman in a stupor all the time. You can't take that as true, now can you? Its great to see Bonnie supporting HKS, he needs it now. His heart is broken and I think now he realizes the things he should of could of and would of done. But he knew she would have pushed him out of her life if he did that, just like she did the others.

3694. In Florida it is a felony to have someone prescription medication .My brother took a bottle of Valium away from my sister who was trying to commit suicide. He was stopped by the police for a broken tail light. He was charged with a felony because his name was not on the prescription. Why did Howie get away with having the name Katz on some of his prescriptions? This is a crime. Wake up Hollywood police,you know what he did. The world is watching. POLYGRAPH

I don't think Stern and his lawyers want to realize that it is not just the media who are suspicious of the circumstances around Anna Nicole's death. Just the circumstances involved indicate that something just doesn't add up from Anna being so sick and supposedly taking all the meds to the meds not even being in her name, etc. I think people have their own opinions and questions, including doctors, nurses, and psychiatrists who are talking about this. I think alot of people will have concerns and questions about Anna and her son's deaths for a long time to come, even if the media spotlight no longer covers the events and aftermath.
