According to unsealed documents written by state officials in California, a pharmacist in L.A. told Anna Nicole Smith‘s internist that the drugs he had prescribed to her after her son Daniel’s death amounted to “pharmaceutical suicide.”
The unsealed affidavits obtained by the Los Angeles Times reveal that Anna’s doctors were warned about the prescription medications by three different pharmacists. The pharmacist in the documents refused to fill the prescriptions, and later recalled thinking, “They are going to kill her with this.”
The first request for drugs on Anna’s behalf came five days after her son Daniel died. The requested medications included two sedatives, 300 tablets of methadone, a muscle relaxer, an anti-inflammatory drug and four bottles of a strong painkiller.
The documents are part of an investigation into what role Anna’s doctors, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich and internist Sandeep Kapoor played in her February 2007 overdose death. Along with Anna’s attorney Howard K. Stern, the docs pleaded not guilty in May to conspiring to illegally provide her with controlled substances. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next month.
Also included in the documents is evidence that both doctors crossed the line of their profession by having having sexual contact with Anna.
