Police have found something of interest on Anna Nicole Smith's laptop that may answer some questions about the cause of her untimely death.
Since the indeterminate initial findings of Anna Nicole Smith's autopsy on February 9, many have been anxiously awaiting an official cause of death, pending toxicology screening and what Chief Medial Examiner Dr. Joshua Perper of Broward County Florida has described as further investigation into "subtle findings" within Smith's heart and digestive tract. Dr. Perper was extremely open and straightforward with the public and the media, and promised updates and possible results within 3-5 weeks.
We are now on week 5 and already there is a break in the case, although Dr. Perper did not discover this piece of evidence. The Seminole Police Department, who are investigating the cause of Anna Nicole Smith's death, have found what has been called "something of interest" on Anna Nicole's laptop computer, which was with her when she passed away at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
At this time, authorities cannot tell what in particular was found on the computer, but it is known that Smith frequently emailed her doctors in the United States. Sources have been hinting that the information found on Smith's laptop has to do with drugs, and Dr. Joshua Perper himself investigated Anna Nicole's use of the drug Demerol. Investigation into the drugs Smith was taking before her death have so far turned up one drug that was prescribed to her, and four prescriptions that were sent to her, but were not in her name.
Apparently, Bahamian police are also interested in the information found on Smith's laptop, as they met with Seminole Police this week to discuss the findings. Bahamian police are still investigating the death of Anna Nicole Smith's son Daniel, who died under mysterious circumstances in September of 2006. Suspicion and rumors about drugs also surround Daniel's passing away, as he was found to have the drugs Methadone, Zoloft, and Lexapro in his system at the time of his death.
While no one will confirm that there is an ongoing homicide investigation in the case of Anna Nicole Smith, the information on the laptop has been described as being a key piece of evidence. One point in particular that has been brought to the surface is the fact that it is very possible that several people had access to Smith's laptop computer, as she traveled with lawyers, personal assistants, body guards, and personal trainers. In addition, guests were in her room a mere few hours before 911 was called, although Anna Nicole Smith was alone at the time of her death on February 8th.
