California Attorney General Jerry Brown issued eight search warrants today in connection with the California Department of Justice’s investigation into the death of Anna Nicole Smith. Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, Smith’s psychiatrist, and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, Smith’s physician, both received warrants (and Howard K. Stern was at Eroshevich’s home at the time the warrant was issued). At the time of her death, Anna Nicole Smith prescriptions included Dilaudid, Lorazepam, Soma, Prixge, and Methadone. Brown says an exhumation of Smith’s body is a possibility as the investigation continues. New York Daily News reports:
The Medical Board of California said in April it was investigating Eroshevich, who, according to documents, authorized all 11 prescription medications found in Smith’s hotel room the day she died. The medical board also began an inquiry to determine if there was any misconduct by Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, who reportedly prescribed methadone to Smith. Methadone is a popular narcotic painkiller that is used as part of drug addiction detoxification and maintenance programs. Methadone overdoses can cause shallow breathing and dangerous changes in heartbeat. Methadone was one of the substances found in the system of Smith’s 20-year-old son, Daniel, who died in September 2006 of an apparently accidental drug overdose.”
Man, this should be fun. It will be just like Weekend at Bernie’s except with bigger tits.
