Anna Nicole Smith Judge -- It Was 'Foul Play'

6/21/2010 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge who decided where Anna Nicole Smith would be buried has written a new book claiming someone is guilty of manslaughter in her death, but he went even further with TMZ, calling Anna's death "a potential murder case."

Anna Nicole Smith

Former judge Larry Seidlin, who authored "The Killing of Anna Nicole Smith," tells TMZ, there is no way the Seminole Police Department was sophisticated enough to properly investigate Anna's death.  As Seidlin put it, "They can tell you how to get to Elm Street or the public library, but this case was too much for them."

Seidlin says, "I think there was foul play and it should be investigated by an independent agency."

Seidlin claims Anna died under "highly unusual circumstances."  As he put it, "She never left her room.  She checked into room 607 at the Hard Rock and never left.  When she was checking in she couldn't even stand up."

Seidlin would not say who he believed should be considered a suspect.

UPDATE: A spokesman for the Seminole Police Department tells TMZ, "Seidlin is wrong. Seminole Tribe Police completed a comprehensive investigation of the death of Anna Nicole Smith in complete cooperation with the Broward County Medical Examiner, the Office of the State Attorney and the Crime Lab of the Broward Sheriff's Office. Since then, Seminole Police have worked closely with California investigators, who are prosecuting criminal charges in the case."

I just want to ask when your Dr. gives you a medication for an ailment how many of us go home and look it up online, check for interactions on other drugs were are scripted or taking "outside the box" and figure out if they are safe. I think not many, Dr's are not gods and your pharmacist is not liable so the only person who is going to make sure you can take the meds you have by however many Docs w/o complications is YOU. In this case it was an odd death and she was full of not only rx drugs but otc cold meds as she claimed to be feeling ill, flu like. She ingested these meds but face it we have seen her in action many times, not the sharpest pencil kiwm? The fkng lawyer acting as her leech and caretaker might have taken a moment of his time to not say at least she is sleeping and not beotching and consider what all was possibly in her system and how far down the rabbit hole she was.

Chan ; when we trust the money hungry Dr. who are being paid by the drug companies to practice their latest concoctions on us etc..Anna was so drugged up she was living on that ***t remember when they showed the fridge in her bahamas house, "Horizons" it was empty except for some slimfast and methadone. how sad, with all that money they wouldn't let her eat, if she got fat again the fans would revolt and find another hot model type to obsess over. The plan was to give birth to another Anna , which she did in Dannilynn.



That judge makes me sorry for all the families he JUDGED when it wasn't a famous person YIKES

Seidlin is the biggest sleaze ever.



People , judges are elected officials. There are groups who monitor them and strengthen the procedures for disbarring them and holding them accountable for criminal and unethical behaviors.

Look how your tax monies are spent in court and vote the bad judges out.



My "spirit guide' just told me that his new psychic court show won't last long.:) What a mockery of our judicial system.
Boycott the show and the book.



Judges have no right writing or getting paid to speak about cases that should remain confidential according to the law.

55. 54. Isn't this the same Judge that believed Howard K Stern and Larry Birkhead to be CREDIBLE and ANS's mommie dearest to be LACKING CREDIBILITY?
Didn't this dude lose his job after the ANS case?
Didn't this guy start becoming a MEDIA talking head after the lawsuit?
I guess he didn't learn from the Rita Cosby case...

I couldn't agree more!!
Glad to see you back Swims and Patrick Henry!



So Seidlin wrote a book about ANS's death accusing HKS, wonder if he is on the same payroll Rita was??



I agree with you Swims when you described the two week long hearing that should have taken three hours at the most. Many people in the courts and law practice were calling it a "Circus."



Seidlin has a heck of a nerve talking about HKS! Lots of articles were written about him trying to steal from a lady in his building. BELOW is what Seidlin was accused of:

Yes the Aliens have landed    

If some of you would stop picking your boogers , you would know that 'Crybaby" didn't accuse HKS of 'Killing Anna" he said THE OVER PRESCRIBING of medications KILLED HER.



Not that i agree with him, just get it right for once and stop making us sick with your propogangda.

Thank you Facts just facts.



It is striking that Seidlin and Cosby write with the same TX cabal lingo and rumor/innuendo. Seidlin’s TODAY show interview was rife with misstatements a la VA/O’Q.

Facts just facts,



Your first link to blogs.browardpalmbeach has this fascinating excerpt:



“And so Seidlin sped through his dockets, earning the nickname "Lightning Larry." While he was still judge, he was the subject of a gotcha report by Channel 7 reporter Carmel Cafiero in which she followed Seidlin to see how often he worked. "[W]hen we watched the judge April 10th and 11th and April 17th and 18th, Seidlin's lunch breaks lasted close to three hours," Cafiero reported. "If he worked at all in the afternoons, it was for about one hour. And by 4, he was at a tennis club three out of the four days."



Seidlin had little attention span, said the attorney, never read books, and had little knowledge of the law. "You could put all his knowledge of the law in a thimble and still have room left over," said the lawyer. "I don't know how he got a bar license; he had the worst attention deficit I've ever seen. He was always afraid people were going to figure out that he didn't know the law, but I always say Seidlin is the luckiest man alive."”



‘Lightening Larry” with “little knowledge of the law” sure did slow down to waste the taxpayer’s and public’s time with his ‘burial hearing’. At least he stumbled on to the correct decision without knowing the proper law that backed it up.

Savesomething:
You are a researcher after my own heart!!!
I traipsed over to Amazon and at that time, Sideline's
book was listed at 25.00 slashed to 16.50.
I noted the Transit publishing owned by Pierre Turgeon( there are two, one a hockey player and the other in"publishing".
Transit has a lot of tell all unofficial celebrity books Including one by the actor who played "Schreech" on Saved by the Bell. He initially signed with Gotham and promised a salacious tell all on his crewmates but it was unvetted so they dropped him. Transit however published it.

It occurs to me that no seemingly reputable or mainline publisher was willing to take a chance on Sideline's fictional work.

Here's some more on the owner of Transit, followed bu my thoughts:)
================================================================
http://www.thebookseller.com/news/90037-page.html

Montreal-based Jacko publisher 'guilty of fraud'
Montreal-based Pierre Turgeon was sued for more than $60...0,000 (£315,000) by his former partner Julien Beliveau and ordered to pay a $5,000 (£2,626) fine and do "several hours of community service" - teaching the value of reading to school children - after his previous venture Trait d'union went bankrupt in 2005.

Creditors were "left in the lurch for at least $1.7m", the Canadian magazine said. Believeau is "yet to see a penny" from his lawsuit.

Tony Khoury has resigned as the CEO of KRMC. He will be replaced by Pierre Turgeon. Author, journalist, historian, and publisher , Pierre Turgeon has over 30 years of experience in the Publishing industry. He is also the CEO and publisher of Transit Publishing, a company that established itself in a leading position in the publishing industry.

Discredited Montreal publisher back in business with new Jackson bio
Montreal publisher Pierre Turgeon – who pleaded guilty last March to charges of fraud – appears to have rebounded from the bankruptcy of his old publishing firm, Trait d’union. Not only is he back with a new publishing venture, called Transit Publishing, he may well have hit the jackpot with one of his initial releases: a new biography of Michael Jackson, which will include about 50 pages of material pertaining to the pop star’s death.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
As of now, Cogito Media only has an ad for a Charles Manson book without any other media listed.

Should the estate for ANS decide to press charges this should be an easy one, in my opinion. I noted at Amazon that they are coupling his book with that of the ex-strippers in hopes of easing their overhead. There are a total of 9 books written about ANS with only one sanctioned by Her: Great Big Beautiful Doll. Talk about over saturation and a lack of sales!!!!Wonder
whose publishing the Mad Hatter?
