Anna Was Investigated over Possible Murder Plot

10/7/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole SmithAnna Nicole Smith was investigated by the FBI over a possible plot to kill the son of J. Howard Marshall II -- the 89-year-old oil tycoon she married when she was 26, this according to newly released documents.

The investigation took place between 2000 - 2001 -- after J. Howard's death -- when his son, E. Pierce Marshall, was trying to keep Anna Nicole from getting a chunk of his father's wealth ... valued in the hundreds of millions.

According to FBI documents obtained by the Associated Press, authorities confiscated a couple of weapons from Anna's home during the investigation -- including a .357 revolver and a 3.5 inch stainless steel knife.

On July 3, 2000, Smith was questioned by the FBI, but according to the docs Anna, "began crying and denied ever making such plans."

Feds ultimately decided there was "insufficient evidence to establish that there was a murder-for-hire plot by Ms. Smith to kill Pierce Marshall."

Pierce died in 2006 from an infection.

Hawaii spring break    

Anna Nicole Smith was a dirty, junkie ho who hired a homosexual Larry Birkhead to impregnate her. Birkhead had a sperm donor contract. Birkhead broke the contract in May 2006 because he wanted Hollywood career and Marshall money. Anna Nicole didn't want to share her money with sperm donor and fled to Bahamas to protect herself from Birkhead who constantly stalked her.

Anna Nicole desperately wanted Marshall money and wanted Pierce Marshall's death.

Isn't she dead? So you can't do anything to her now. What a prostitute she was. She got millions just to kiss and get naked for that old man. And then she died and didn't get to spend all that money.

The FBI may not have been able to prove a murder-for-hire plot, but she was certainly guilty of trying to steal money she neither earned nor deserved from the Marshall family...

Why would the cops have taken the gun and knife from her? I especially do not understand the knife as 3 1/2 inches is not big at all - in fact I have a dozen steak knifes that are around 6" - 7" blades.

You should NEVER let the cops intimidate you into giving them things without a warrant. Yeah, you might say 'what does an innocent person have to hide?' But it is an innocent person who has the most to fear from the police. After all, a guilty person usually gets caught (mostly) and they get their just punishment. But the prisons are full of innocent people who got locked up just because.
