Warrants Served in Anna Nicole's Death

TMZ has learned that the California Department of Justice began serving search warrants Friday in connection with the death of Anna Nicole Smith. One was served this morning at the home of Anna's psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, and we're told Howard K. Stern was actually there at the time!

We're told that eight warrants were served altogether by armed officers, and these may be connected to the Department's investigation of Dr. Eroshevich. KABC cameras caught Dr. Eroshevich outside her home today. Sources say the warrants were served at several businesses connected to Anna's doctors and at a storage facility. Ellyn Garofalo, a lawyer for Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, who prescribed methadone to Smith shortly before she died, confirmed to the AP the doctor's home and offices were among those raided.

As TMZ first reported, the Medical Board of California is investigating Eroshevich, who ordered a virtual pharmacy of drugs for Anna, five days after her son Daniel died.

UPDATES: We're told the DOJ will hold a press conference at 11:00 AM. Stay tuned!
