Anna Nicole Died of Accidental Drug Overdose

Nearly two months after Anna Nicole's tragic death, the official toxicology and autopsy reports were released this morning. Dr. Perper, the county Medical Examiner announced that her death was caused by an accidental drug overdose. Found in her body were a number of non-illegal drugs, including the sleeping medication chloral hydrate, methadone for pain and many others. Chief Charlie Tiger from the Seminole police department said, “We found nothing to indicate any foul play" and Howard K. Stern will not be charged with anything. Anna Nicole's death was also ruled not to have been suicide. An infection caused by needle injections did cause health problems for Anna Nicole, but it was not the cause of death. In the end, it was a tragic accident. As for the other big mystery, the DNA test determining the paternity of Dannielynn, we will have to continue to wait.

I didn't know about that Imabeliever. It makes sense though. I'm not surprised about this post at all but I hope that it all comes to a rest soon once everyone finds out who the father is. I can't believe that it took 6 weeks though, that's ridiculous!

Also I think her estrangement with her mother was about the drugs too. Her mother got a bad rap unfairly I think. In Anna's drug adled brain she couldn't accept the fact that her mother said that she thought Anna and Howard were to blame in some way for Danny's death when in effect she and Howard are responsible for surrounding Danny with drugs and a drug fix any problem, mix them freely environment growing up. Her mom has been in law enforcement since she tried to become an under age stripper in Texas. Her mother helped raise Daniel while Anna went off whoring and stripping and using drugs. Then she came back and scooped him up and never did anything for her family back home cause "Vicki Lynn" and her poor white trash family didn't fit into her Hollywood glam image. Her mother and Larry were the only ones in her life who apparently tried to get her help for her drug use.

The drugs was how he controled her.. when she was lucid is when she would get involved with other people and he would start to lose his control on her.

If anyone was in it for the money that would more than likely be Howard.. he solely represented Anna in anticipation of her payday. She paid for all of his expenses and he lived off of her for years. always skulking around in the background taking whatever scraps she threw him.

I really do not think Larry is in it for the money.. I think he genuinely loved Anna and her drug use and Howard's unusual puppetmaster influence on her broke them up. She wanted him to marry her and have the baby and he gave an ultimatum about those two issues.

I'm not in the least bit surprised.... it's really so senseless and sad.

I read an interview with her former nanny that she drank a whole bottle of some sleeping med and when she whole up several hours later , her comment was something like "oh I meant to kill myself." Not sure of the validity of this, but anyone who self medicates with several prescription meds all at once is not in their right mind. I do not believe Howard tried to help her in any way. In fact he drew up her will intentionally leaving out any future spouses and children. Why would this not have been changed after Dannielynn's birth once Danny died? Some lawyer Howard is. If her truly loved the baby he would have made sure ANS's will included her.

I don't think Larry was or is in it for the money. I do think he likes the attention a bit.

just remember... not all doctors are going to have her full medical records... so they may not always know the combinations of medications she is taking, she probably didn't know, I know I wouldn't if I was taking that many... plus that's the pharmacist's job anyway

Hmmmm.....I am not sure what I think I here. At one point I was on Howard's side...not so much anymore. This whole thing is such a tragedy, I just hope the baby gets the love she deserves.

IMO I don't think Larry is in it for the money.. He has been after trying to get his daughter since she was born. If it was for the money, then why would he have tried when Anna was alive? "I wear my sunglasses at night so I can, so I can watch you live and breathe your storylines"

Delia, it's okay, I don't feel ganged up on, the whole thing is frustrating, feel so sorry for Dannilynn. Gotta run! It's been real!

Hey Louey - didn't mean to gang up comments on you...I didn't see cine_lover's comments until after I posted! To tell the truth, I don't like Larry much better than Howard. I just wish there was someone that we knew for sure was really on Anna's side. SO sad there isn't anyone!
cine_lover cine_lover 10 years
Louey you are right about Larry not being convinced about Larry s true motives. But even if Anna would have wanted Howard to be the father, which I think she only wanted while she was alive because of money reasons, I don't know if she has the best judgment. I don't think SHE should even have her kid if she was still alive.
Louey Louey 10 years
delia, I guess I missed that one. You're right it all is a shame.

Louey, didn't you see that video shot by Howard of Anna pregnant, totally blitzed and pushing a baby carriage? He was mocking her, making fun of her, and made comments about the video being worth money. I didn't know much about his personality before seeing it, but hearing him on the tape confirmed for me that he doesn't have her best interest at heart. It's all such a shame, really...
Louey Louey 10 years
I understand your point of view. I think Larry just wants the money, Howard as always been there for her, loved her, let her be herself just so he could be with her. I'm not saying it was right, I just think that's what she would of wanted, him to raise her daughter. I'm not convinced Larry is in it for the right reasons. It won't matter once we find out who the father is anyway.
cine_lover cine_lover 10 years
Louey I agree that Howard could not stop Anna from doing as she pleases, but there is a video of her pregnant and high as a kite and he is filming it and laughing. There is a difference between not being able to control someone and condoning it which he was by making it into a big joke.
Louey Louey 10 years
I just think that is what Anna would of wanted for her daughter. I don't think Howard could stop her from doing anything she wanted to do. He was there for her no matter what. And I think he will love that baby.
ilove2ski ilove2ski 10 years
I would not want Howard raising any baby. "I wear my sunglasses at night so I can, so I can watch you live and breathe your storylines"
cine_lover cine_lover 10 years
When are they releasing the DNA results? I thought was suppose to be today. Louey why do you hope that Howard is the father? He seems to be as big of a drug addict as she was and even if he is not he never did anything to stop her from being high all the time or from being high when she was pregnant.
