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."

What is that Florida Law that says if you provide drugs, rx or not, to an individual, and that individual dies, you are held responsible for their death? Does somebody out there know the wording of the law? Help me out here, please. Thank you.

The World According To Howard:

"I helped her to the bathroom around 10:00 am."
Two to two and a half hours later - she is dead.

The World According To Dr. Perper:

"The chloryl hydrate that killed her was taken two to two and half hours before death."
Why did she need chloryl hydrate at 10:00 am?

Just as a prostitute can be raped, a drug addict can be murderered.

No one ever said "No" to her. They were all her gophers not wanting to chance losing their piggybank. Anna is to blame, HKS & the rest of her entourage were her accomplices.

Ridiculous finding by a hack medical examiner. Perper should be under fire from all legal and journalistic venues. I am really shocked that there will be no one held accountable in the death of this clearly disturbed, drug addicted woman. If she was not in the standing of possibly getting millions from Marshall's estate, I think those leeches would not have been there and helped the death along with their enabling and need to control the cash cow, Anna.

Criminal cases aren't taken on a contingency basis. If you are indigent, you get a public defender paid by the state.

What's his criminal lawyer's name?

Dr. Wecht's troubles aren't the results of flawed autopsies. He is one of the best forensic pathologists around. He reviewed JFK's flawed autopsy, Jon Benet Ramsey's autopsy and air plane crash victims in Gander, Newfoundland related to Iran/Contra to name just a few.

"Murder" requires malicious intent in Florida, as Dr Perper stated.

However, that does not mean that there was not a wrongful death. Virgie and Larry (as father of Dannielynn) can file civil lawsuits against the parties who participated in maintaining this portable pharmacy.

First, Eroshevich can (and should) lose her medical license. It is appalling that a physician would prescribe under aliases, particularly in the quantity she did.

And Stern did not act as a prudent person if he mixed drugs and gave them to her.

Even if Stern did not served the drugs, he and the doc surely knew Anna was an addict -- As Dr. Eroshevich said on ET!, "By now, the whole world knows it!" In this case, why would you leave an ADDICT in close proximity to an abundance of drugs? That is certainly negligence.

Meanwhile, in a class on legal aspects of nursing, I learned that if a person gives another person a drug prescribed for himself and then death results, that is a felony. So doesn't that apply in Florida? How is that Stern and the doc are being given a pass on this??? Why did Eroshevch have to use aliases when prescribing?

O. KAY!!!! so these prescriptions were all prescribed to Howard by Dr. E.....
well then at least "Broward County" could do is make a report to child services in Bahamas to get dannielynn out of that drug infested environment.

Although maybe they have taps on Howard & co.'s lines...and hopefully are gathering the more incriminating evidence for MURDER ONE...otherwise I think eventually there will be some sort of negligent homicide charges against both Howard & Dr. E. at least.

Dr. E left just before D Day, with Anna begging her to stay.
I think Anna was begging her for help from Howard....and what else did the Good ole Dr E bring for Howard to use on Anna?

What a plan....and these 2 people are living in society.

get dannielynn away from Howard

It is high time that Howard K. Stern come up with even ONE video from the last two months of Anna's life showing her to be clear-headed and coherent. If he is unable to do so, the claim that Anna had freely accepted his proposal of marriage is a pathetic farce.
