Anna's

Dr.'s Office Raided

Howard K. Connection

2/5/2009 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the doctor who prescribed Anna Nicole Smith methadone when she was 8 months pregnant has just had his office raided... and we've learned authorities are looking for a connection between the doc and Howard K. Stern.



The California Medical Board got a warrant to search Dr. Sandeep Kapoor's Studio City office this morning. Informed law enforcement sources tell us they are looking for prescriptions Kapoor may have written for Howard K. Stern. We're told Medical Board officials want to know if Stern may have used Kapoor to score drugs for Anna -- something Stern has vehemently denied.

The California Department of Justice, Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, has been conducting an investigation into Kapoor since 2007. He has also been under investigation by the Medical Board for his prescription practices. Thirteen days before Smith gave birth to Dannielynn he wrote a methadone prescription for her under an alias, Michelle Chase. Under California law, it's illegal to prescribe a controlled substance under a false name.

Launch PhotosThe raid was conducted by the DEA on behalf of the Medical Board. DEA officials took files and other documents.

UPDATE: Howard K. Stern just released this statement to TMZ: "Dr. Kapoor never prescribed Anna Nicole medication in my name -- and that is what the Medical Board will find out."

If she hadn't gotten the 'drugs' from those people, she would have just gotten them somewhere else. And for someone who was supposed to have been on 'drugs' for so long, AND alcohol, she sure looked good. Howard Stern just did what Anna asked him to do, otherwise she would have dumped him. He really cared about her, in my opinion.

Stern is a sociopath. He believes his own complex lies. Ironic, he is always in the center of mysterious deaths & acts like he is innocent & concerned. "oh Anna, I am nothing without you" Quite the contrary, you had everything she owned & you kidnapped her baby too. Sickening that it was Anna's money that allowed him to buy his way out of the Bahamas. How many rolex watches did he give away? Where are all of Anna's Jewels, clothes, paintings, & the yacht that stern purchased under his name with anna's money....the day she laid dead in a hotel room. Stern, lawyer turned lap dog, does not have the money to buy gasoline for the yacht. Stern is a pathetic excuse for a man.

Stern knew the death of Daniel would destroy Anna. All part of his plan. If he escapes these charges, Let the IRS get him for income tax evasion. He scooped all that he could, including her baby. He kidnapped Dannylynn because he wanted to be the father of her only surviving heir. I could puke when I see this worms face. He was always up anna's ass. Please put this sociopath behind bars & take every cent back. Anna's personal items are often sold on ebay. When I asked where they got the item they always say, Anna gave it to them, which is bs.

HE SLSO THOUGHT THAT THE BABIES FATHER WOULD JUST GIVE UP BECAUSE OF HIS POSITION TO ANNA WHICH WAS NOTHING......!!!! BUT JUST LIKE PHILLY SAID THE CRAP IS ABOUT THE TO HIT THE FAN AND THE TRUTH IS ABOUT TO COME OUT... HOWARD KILLED TWO PEOPLE ONE HE KILLED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ANNA HER SON IN THE HOSPITAL AND THEN HER...

Re. Dr. "Khristine" i.e Shrink From Hell-- has anyone noticed:
1- trying to look like Anna i.e. "obsession";
2- traces of East European accent although allegedly graduated from Ohio U. some three decades back;
3- bought house next to Anna-Howard
Etc. This gang evidently circled their prey, disarmed it, then swooped down.

I have given up on anone ever being held responsible for Anna and Daniels death by poisoning. This article means nothing. Daniel and Anna bear all the blame and suffered the consequences. No one else will ever be punished.

No doubt that Howard was involved in getting drugs for Anna and that the drugs led to Anna's death. In my book that's murder.
