But the bigger question now is: What was the real relationship between Eroshevich and Stern/Smith? The autopsy results listed nine drugs in Smith’s 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 Smith’s death.

i saw that report on the insider and it has mysteriously disappeared. good on fox news to keep reports in the archives.
the truth always comes out and k e when she was living with anna in the bahamas took control of all meds for anna. she measured them put them into cups and asked the nannies to wake howard to give them to anna. the nannies and howard took instructions from k e. the nannies confirmed this.

GRACE: It certainly does raise a lot of questions. Tonight, we are talking about day one into the inquest in the death of Daniel Smith, Anna Nicole Smith`s 20-year-old son, who died unexpectedly and suddenly there in the hospital with her after she had delivered her baby girl.

Joining us tonight, Dr. Joshua Perper. As you know, he conducted the autopsy on Anna Nicole Smith. Dr. Perper, you have told us that you see many, many deaths due to a deadly and sometimes unintentional combination of drugs. But Dr. Perper, you`ve got to see the similarities between the deaths of Anna Nicole and her son, Daniel. They`re eerily similar.

DR. JOSHUA PERPER, BROWARD COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINER: Well, by the same token, you have to see the differences and to balance one against the others. And there are clear differences. There were methadone -- in one case, methadone was a cause of death. In the other case, it wasn`t. In the case of Anna Nicole Smith, the major cause of death was chloral hydrate. This was not the case with her son.

In one case, Anna Nicole Smith, she had an infection which was accompanied by high fever. In the case of her son, it wasn`t. In the case of the son, this was apparently a minor depression or an occasional one. In the case of Anna Nicole Smith, it was a chronic depression. So you really have to balance both.

But I cannot speak about the son because I didn`t do a thorough investigation in this case, and therefore I don`t feel competent to speak about that.

GRACE: OK. Dr. Perper, didn`t Anna Nicole Smith have methadone in her bile?

PERPER: Yes. But this methadone in her bile didn`t have any impact on her death or on her consciousness. It was just there.

DR. JOSHUA PERPER, BROWARD COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINER: Well, I think that the question is the following. If you suspect that it was foul play, and you have a suspect, and if you theoretically assume that they will go to court, do you think that any court of law would find a conviction or a presence of homicide based on the evidence available? Not in a thousand years.

GRACE: Dr. Perper, you`re absolutely right. With what we know right now, you are absolutely correct. No one would return a guilty verdict on what is known right now. And another thing, to you, Dr. Joseph Deltito, following up on what Dr. Perper just said, think about it. Look at all the pictures you`ve see of Stern. Look, we all know who we`re talking about. We`re talking about Stern.

GRACE: And, Dr. Perper, I saw there was bloody fluid on her bed sheet. Was that coming from the abscesses, do you think?

PERPER: I didn`t think that it was bloody fluid. It looked more like a diarrhea fluid.

GRACE: So she was throwing up, having diarrhea, couldn`t keep anything down. Oh, Dr. Perper, that reminds me of something. I was looking at all the things that were listed by her bed stand. She had all of these prescription bottles. She had the gum you chew when you`re trying to quit smoking. It looked like she was living off SlimFast and not really eating. I know she tried to keep down a little omelet but couldn`t.

I mean, how does that affect your body, Dr. Perper, when you go indefinitely on diet pills, and you`re drinking SlimFast, and you`re taking all these various drugs?

PERPER: Well, she was a number of -- first of all, the drugs were both antidepressant and anti-anxiety. It`s not correct to say they were not antidepressant, the three drugs.

Second, there were no nine drugs. There were only five drugs. The first was chloral hydrate. There were three antidepressant, anti-anxiety, and an antihistaminic drug, Benadryl. And, obviously, those three drugs, the anti-depressant, can cause confusion. People are counseled not to drive car, not to operate machinery. And sometimes confusion can be a result of those drugs.

And I think that there was information in the media that at the time she appeared to be very confused in her behavior. So it`s consistent, in terms of her behavior, as described previously and the presence of drug in her system.

Virgie is not doing a follow up on Daniel's death. so the inquest must have quenched her thirst for allegations of murder and proof delivered to her satisfaction that Howard was totally innocent and OQ settled out of court for his public malicious remarks. Howard will be proven innocent regarding the death of his soul mate Anna whom he loved more than his own life.

Anna was a very strong character and nobody's fool, even Virgie is videoed and relates this info for all the public to see and there is/was no motive. With regards to the Marshall case, Howard's contract states he will gain 6%, this still applies whether Anna was alive or otherwise, therefore this argument to kill Anna is moot.

OQ wants that 6% and the noteriety that goes with it. TUFF he ain't gonna get it. He is a proven CROOK lawyer. may he choke on the money her has already gained through dishonest practises which he took from poor people.

Surely,it is common sense the law in the Bahamas and the US have done their checks regarding any motives therefore, unless they are totally stupid what can they come up with now!

Lets wait and see, Howard is innocent
