Drugs, Legal and Not, Found in Anna Nicole’s Room (update)

WCBS New York reports

while searching Anna Nicole Smith’s hotel room late Thursday afternoon investigators found two key pieces of evidence — illegal narcotics and prescription medications.

Now, a toxicology report will determine whether one of these drugs or a combination of both substances contributed to her death. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday morning in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Smith, 39, collapsed and was unresponsive while staying at the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino, said the attorney, Ron Rale. She was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Fla.

The press generally seems to be treating her death as a final sad chapter. There’s a lot still up in the air … the paternity suit from ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead over her new born daughter; the authorities in the Bahamas are about to open an investigation into her young son’s overdose death next month; the family of elderly billionaire J. Howard Marshall II, continue their legal battle over Anna Nicole’s inheritance of his money.

Those are just the big one’s … and how they will progress, cross-over, be stalled and be complicated by her death awaits to be seen. The conspiracy theories are already in progress. They certainly have plenty to work with … its going to be a bit of an industry in the coming months.

Estranged from most of her family and surrounded by a randomly assembled reality tv menagerie these last years: the saddest footnote comes from an interview shot about ten days in her home in the Bahamas

“Everyone in my life has stabbed me in my back, or said something bad about me or sued me,” she told The Insider.

There’s no arguing with that

Update by Celebitchy: Apparently only prescription drugs were found in Anna Nicole’s room and earlier reports that there were narcotics in the room were false. The coroner reports that she either died from natural causes, drugs, or a combination of both. Final results from the autopsy are expected in 4-6 weeks.

    That story header is confusing. Punctuation would help. I think it should read “Drugs, legal and not, found in Anna Nicole’s Room”

    I would imagine since the death of her son, Anna probably took about anything she could to get rid of the grief she had to have felt. Plus she had just given birth, it’s a wonder if she didn’t suffer from Post-partum depression.

    I’m sure that her broken heart over the loss of her son had a lot to do with this.

    i think they should check out howard k. stern. and perhaps arson. I think he is behind her death and her son, Danny’s.

    iva, i think that you’re right… i hadnt thought of post partum depression on top of the grief over her sons death.
    i think that her final statement, about being betrayed by everyone….while it might be true…its also an indicator of deep deep depression. i think that she commited suicide.

    oh and as far as the fake prince von dorkus , the wife of zsa zsa, that dude wants some media lovin’. he is not the baby daddy. ( re: the “prince” title he has, he bought that from a member of the royal family when she was in desperate need for money.)

    I am becoming thoroughly disgusted with the lack of responsibility the media has used to fill their airtime with misinformation. In the press conference today, the chief of police stated there were no illegal drugs found in the hotel room … Yet this WCBS reported there were, I believe they were also the ones that reported that it appeared she had choked on her own vomit, which was not the case, according to the autopsy. When did not confirming sources and information become the main stream media’s policy ?

    Prescription, illegal, whatever. She had a prescription to Vicodin. She clearly abused her Rx to stay high 24-7, as evidenced in every single bit of tape on the woman.

    Yes, details are important, but you can hardly expect the irresponsible press to get the facts straight only 24 hours after the event; that never, ever happens. If you want the real poop it’s gonna take several more weeks so have a sit back because most of what we hear batting around is going to be inflated gossip.

    Are you referring to this site kswarthout?

    If so, just one thing – its a celebrity blog site, its not ‘main stream media’ and therefore has no obligations. I think most people who come here realise that.
