Perper -- Death Definitely Not Suicide, Not a Homicide

Anna Nicole Smith was recovering from her depression at the time of her death, but she had not made statements about suicide in the weeks prior to her death.
Dr. Joshua Perper says Anna did not try to commit suicide when she fell in a pool shortly after Daniel died. It was an accident caused by too many drugs.
Dr. Perper says Anna's computer was helpful in determining her state of mind. There was no suicide attempt.
What's more, Dr. Perper dismissed any possibility of homicide in the case. "We did not find any evidence that would point to homicide," he said. "We did not find any fact ... which could raise credible suspicion of homicide."
There was no evidence to suggest forced-feeding of one of the drugs Anna ingested.
