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."

It is not the end of the story ,the F.B.I can always open this damn case back up on Anna . This case needs to be reopened and another autopsy done for Perper did not do it properly ,there were things that were not done ,like the vomit in the sink was not tested ,the blood on the bed and the yellow substance that was there also and the hair strands were not tested ,they were cut and taken but no drug test done on the strands ..Why?????

#22 Why would HKS "eliminate" ANS? So she wouldn't have to testify at Daniel's inquest. He wants that inquest declared "unconstitutional" Why do you suppose he's fighting that inquest so hard??

If I were a bartender, and I knowingly gave alcohol to someone who was drunk, I would be held responsible.
Someone is responsible for Anna Nicole's death.

My gosh people - get a grip.

It is well documented that Anna was using drugs loooooooong before she met Howard. Anna loved her drugs and no-one and nothing stopped her from taking them!!!
A bit of weakness and not feeling well would not have stopped her from getting to them I am sure. Please stop judging others and jumping to conclusions.. she was a big girl and she was careless with the drugs - that is all, end of story!! happens all the time to people who love their drugs...

justice for anna + daniel    

ok so let's look at this picture:

Coward (supposedy at Anna's request) hires the WORST coroner (with a known criminal indictment pending) to perform the 2nd autopsy on Daniel, and hires the WORST psychiatrist/doctor (just fired from last job) to help his OWN wife recover after Daniels death....


But oh, he then hires the BEST Criminal defense attorney (no shady past) for his defense, before he is even charged with anything....


Are his parents still paying for this??? Or is it on continguency? Like all the other laywers on the Marshall

The autopsy results

listed nine drugs in Smiths system, nearly all of them ordered by
Eroshevich. The doctor also said in a TV interview with The
Insider that she administered all the drugs personally. She
herself cited chloral hydrate as one of them.Smith's medical examiner
said in his press conference that it was an accidental overdose of
chloral hydrate and other drugs that caused Smiths death

Puh-lease    

Have you noticed that friend/"doctor" Eroshevich has really been enjoying her 15 minutes of fame? When she first started appearing on t.v., she just looked like an average joe. Fast foward and she had a makeover... new hair, new make up, even false eyelashes! How professional. NOT.

maybe the bag was right next to her.dr. Perper know the whole pic we don't.he has seen things we haven't.Howard loved Anna,he gave up his own life for her.why would he want anything to happen to her.she was worth more to him alive then dead.Even if he comes away from all of this a free man,he will never have his good name back.thanks to all of you

She had already given her statement to the authorities! That is the one they are planning to use at the inquest. If there were anything incriminating in that statement they would be having a murder trial, not an inquest. I believe that he is fighting that inquest because he doesn't want Daniel and Anna to look any worse than they already do. Anna was worth more to Howard alive than dead.
