Anna's Ex: Smith Wanted Me to Kill Pierce

10/7/2009 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We just spoke with the guy who triggered the murder-for-hire investigation into Anna Nicole Smith -- and he says she repeatedly asked him to kill the son of her late husband, J. Howard Marshall II.

Anna Nicole & Mark Hatten
Mark "Hollywood" Hatten, Anna's ex-BF, says a drug-addled Smith was continually "begging with me to kill E. Pierce Marshall" claiming after her husband died, Pierce was "standing in the way of her money."

Hatten says he told Pierce's lawyer about the alleged plot. Mark claims he was then interviewed by the FBI twice about the matter while he was in jail for an unrelated crime.

TMZ sources confirm that when Anna and Howard K. Stern met with the FBI, an agent told them Hatten was the one who made the claim. We're also told the agent didn't believe Hatten's story.

Ultimately, the FBI determined there was "insufficient evidence to establish that there was a murder-for-hire plot."

duh    

The fact that this clown was in jail on "unrelated matters" while the FBI interviewed him speaks volumes about his credibility. I think that even the FBI could piece together a solid murder-for-hire case if there was one, especially considering the mental giants supposedly involved.

The fact that you're giving him space, airing the audio and that I'm even taking the time to comment is just fueling the fire that this guy has been obviously trying to build for years. Bravo, us.

No need to Fool Anna now. I'll Man Hatten. I do not believe this particular guy. I would be more suspicious about that ProctoNazi, uh... I mean Spawneratzi having gotten Anna and her son out of the way so that he could be the gaurdian of the child that stood to inherit Pierce's Father's money. Think about it, Means, Motive, Opportunity. I do not trust Howard K. Stern, but I would suspect that Anna's daughter's FatherDude before him, in terms of having something to gain by Both of those deaths. Why has nobody questioned this?
