Brown's Statement

10/12/2007 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"The California Department of Justice today served search warrants at various doctors' offices, billing locations, and residences in both Los Angeles and Orange Counties, related to the death of Anna Nicole Smith. The locations searched today are related to doctors who provided medical treatment or prescribed drugs for Anna Nicole Smith or her associates.

On March 30, 2007, the California Department of Justice Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement commenced an investigation into circumstances surrounding the death of Anna Nicole Smith, including the prescribing and dispensing practices of several California licensed doctors and pharmacies. To date, agents have reviewed over 100,000 computer images and files, analyzed patient profiles and pharmacy logs and interviewed witnesses throughout the country and abroad.

The California Department of Justice is spearheading this investigation with the cooperation of regulatory agencies, medical professionals and law enforcement agencies, including: The California Department of Insurance, the California Medical Board, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Seminole Tribal Police and the Royal Bahamian Police Force.

In view of the fact that the investigation is ongoing, we will not provide further details or report any findings at this time. The California Department of Justice will conduct a fair and thorough investigation and wishes to protect the identity of cooperating witnesses. When our investigation is complete, you will be provided as much information as possible about any suspects, arrests or criminal charges.

Beyond this statement, no one involved in this investigation will have further comment at this time. Thank you for your cooperation."

Looks like the whole bunch that murdered Anna Nicole are going to get what is coming to them! 600 prescription drugs found in that hotel room with her! I will be so happy to see Howie behind bars. And the good Dr., with whom he was with when the search warrants were served! It sounds like murder charges are in the near future. The Bahamian law enforcement is also assisiting. That should be good for the Inquest into Daniels death, which comes at the end of the month.

I am so glad to see that this is not being swept under the carpet. They tried desperately to get Dr. Perper to sign her death as a suicide. And what is more interestingis that Howard K Stern was at the Dr's house. Was he getting him a fix himself. I noticed that he's straightened up a bit since Anna's death. Maybe it scared him straight. Yeah your right. Where's Art Harris to spin this for Howard.

Howard K Stern was a disgusting liar on Larry King. Yeah he was at the doctors' house, now how interesting is that. He is probably telling her to be careful what she says....they were both involved in murdering Anna....and her son, so they can get her money. Wasn't it Larry Birkhead who testified in a Florida courtroom that Howard was stealing money from Anna and depositing it in off shore banks. In her condition, you know how easy that is?

First of all, jumping to conclusions isn't what's going to solve anything. Anna Nicole Smith was a grown up who, like it or not, made her own choices and she chose to take and continued to take every drug that she could. To say that she was "murdered" may not be accurate and while I may not like Howard K. Stern, I do believe that he loved her too much to want to see her dead and lose her. If anyone is to be held responsible then I would look to each and every Dr. who wrote those prescriptions, knowing the fragility of her mind and her thoughts especially after she lost her son. They should have known better, were bound to an oath to do better and instead, capitalized on their ability to turn over scripts just because they were asked to. Anna Nicole Smith was a willing participant in her own life and she didn't have to go to all those Dr's and she didn't have to participate in her own unhealthy behavior. The truth will come out but having been in the legal field now for as long as I've been, I can honestly say that I believe that if anyone is facing serious charges, it would be the Dr's and especially her psychiatrist.

Let sleeping bodies rest in peace...........    

I believe Howard. He seems to be the only one telling the truth in this whole mess.

It's a shame the news media has tried and convicted him in the press.
