Thread Number One
OUCH. And Ross looked like the most competant one, in Howard's Crime ring of attorneys. LOL
Synthetic narcotic developed to treat addiction now prescribed as analgesic; deaths up 389 percent in five years
lol....taken from the article....
"Anna Nichole Smith." Ross didn't even know the spelling of the deceased's name, even though she may be the most famous person in the world right now.
That's not a good sign.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Court TV) - A man who claims he is the biological father of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter struggled for composure on the witness stand Wednesday as he recalled their tumultuous relationship, which included a miscarriage and a hospital visit to help her kick a prescription drug addiction during her pregnancy.
Birkhead testified that he was nervous and excited for the birth of the child, which Smith told him was his in February 2006, one year after she had suffered a miscarriage of their first child.
I still keep thinking of a nose spray or a mask or an inhaler. Something that goes right into the lungs and then the bloodstream. Wonder if Anna had anything like that available??
We don't even really know if she was first noticed as "not breathing" on her stomach...and/or if Daniel was found on his stomach.
If Daniel started to have trouble breathing, could Howard have handed him an inhaler??

Wonder if KE is a witness to the Corpoation papers...or the Notary.
Sounds like every time Anna challenged Howard, she went to her best friend. How dreadful.
"Finally talked her into marrying Howard". Was KE at the boat wedding?
Another interesting article!
"McKnelly, a professor of psychiatry, says he had the first methadone program west of the Mississippi, founded in 1966 in affiliation with the Kansas University Medical Center."
I worked at a 350 bed general hospial in Pittsburgh in 1968. The hospital administrator got the bright idea that he would start a program at the hospital to treat drug addicts. Would you believe young black addicts were placed in a six bed ward on the same floor as the general population of med-surg patients?
I remember having to administer methadone. None of us were formally trained to deal with these drug addicts. All this was new to us and we wondered what the $%#&@ administrator was thinking! (I was young and had no idea what a drug addict even was! That were NOT part of our nurses' training in those days.) Other med-surg patients on the floor were suddenly missing money, wallets, etc. from their rooms. I also seem to remember physical fighting among those drug addicts and/or their visitors.
I was working there for only a few months before I had to move from the area, so I don't know what ever happened to the "program."
"The debate was whether or not the will had been faxed from Ron Rale to Krista Barth on Feb 3."
During the hearing they tried to make it sound as if the will had first been faxed to Barth from Rales home and the machine date setting was incorrect. Didn't someone here post a BAHAMIAN FAX NUMBER to which the will had been faxed? Barth is in Florida, February 3 was Saturday and they didn't arrive in Florida until Monday evening of February 5.
Second...There had to be a request for it. A phone call, email, fax...because how would he know where to fax it?? There should also be a corresponding in coming call with the matching date wherever it was received.
Faxes usually have Cover Sheets where the date is either typed in or handwritten. We've only see PART of the fax. For all we know, it could be from some other communication and Barth attached it to the will. The will itself might also have notations in the margins. Attorneys are notorious for that. It would indicate: "In answer to your question"....
Perhaps you've already read the article TexKat posted ...post #5348. This is taken from the article:
...in the meantime, Larry Birkhead has just fired his lawyer, Debra Opri, after months of fighting with her. Readers of this column know that Birkhead and Opri didn't get along, didn't agree on her media involvement or course of action with Stern.
Opri likes to be on TV; Birkhead desired a different approach.
But his dad and step-mother are with him in the Bahamas. His sister was with him the entire time during the trial in Miami.
I expect the arrest of two people for "negligent homicide in the death of Anna Nicole Smith" to occur 15 minutes before Perper announces his results. You think Perper is holding the horses back for nothing?
The problem I can see is that he is in the Bahamas and who has jurisdiction. Either they have to get Howard and KE to Florida or the Bahama authorities will hold him until he can be extradited to the USA.
Maybe after the DNA thing, they can send him to the USA as an undesireable or simply because his visa (or whatever) has run out.
Agree with all the possibilities and usual and customary behavior involving a will.
During the 'body possession' hearing, one of Virgie's lawyers was making a big deal of the fax date, excuses were made and I thought I remembered someone here coming up with a Bahamian fax number from the Feb. 3 fax. Hoping someone here remembers more details.
"I expect the arrest of two people for "negligent homicide in the death of Anna Nicole Smith"
I hope so. If that happens, and one of them is HKS, a woo-hoo will be heard around the nation...coming from us Freepers!
It was just a diversion OR had it gone to probate.
Also, there was an attorney for Daniel's Estate. Where did that go?? Atty. Scott. Howard obviously took that over, too.
If Danny went to a PI, Danny probably had a list of things that bothered him. I hope there's some physical evidence. I'm praying that the PI has a taped conversation or a "Columbo" notebook.
Watching those old episodes (and I watched all the shows, I was as hooked on her as I was on Ozzy, don't ask why. Like a real live freakshow I guess) I realize how much I really liked Howard K. Stern. I have completely turned on him after both deaths, either for letting them die, or orchastrating it himself. Either way, I know I enjoyed watching them pal around. And even thought he was sort of cute. Wow. Did he really just get tired of her humiliating him? Did he snap?
When was the last time Danny saw or talked to his mom prior to her death. I hope it's in the PI's notes. Wonder if Perper has talked to the PI. It sure looks like "evidence" to me.
Whoops....When was the last time Danny talked or saw his mother PRIOR to his death...before the baby was born??
Seidlin: Weve got to keep going. You can now begin by asking some questions.
Deb Opri: Thank you, your Honor.
John OQuinn: For the record, your Honor, I object to my cross examination being terminated. There were lots of other subjects I needed to go into.
Seidlin: Yes, fine.
DO: Good afternoon, Mr. Stern. You know who I am. Did Anna keep a computer?
HKS: She had, she had two computers that were stolen in the house.
DO: The answer to the question is yes or no.
HKS: Yes, she had a computer.
DO: Did she maintain a password for her computer?
DO: Did you know the password for the computer?
DO: Did she maintain checking accounts where you were a signatory to those checking accounts?
DO: Did she have corporations where you were an officer or a signatory to those corporations?
Krista Barth: Objection, how does this go to Miss Anna Nicole Smiths intent in relation to burial?
HKS: I believe I was an agent for service of process.
Seidlin: Hold it, hold it.
KB: We are so far a field .
Seidlin: Weve weve argued this. The issue of money. We got money and we have heart. Shes chasing the issue about the money. Its relevant. Your objections overruled.
KB: Thank you.
Seidlin: Youre welcome.
HKS: I believe I was an agent for service of process for her corporation. But I dont think I was uh an officer.
DO: You dont know if you signed checks for the corporations or not?
HKS: She would instruct me to sign checks. Her main checkbook was through the corporation.
DO: So the answer was Yes, you signed checks for the corporation?
HKS: Yes. I signed her name upon her instruction.
DO: So you signed Anna Nicoles name to checks for the corporation?
HKS: It wasnt Anna Nicole.
DO: Vickie Lynn Marshall.
HKS: Vickie Marshall .yeah.
DO: While we are on the subject, what were her aliases or other names she used?
KB: Objection, relevance. How is what her aliases are
DO: It goes to the money.
Seidlin: Im hoping you can tie it up.
DO: Im very quickly
KB: Heres the concern.
Seidlin: One person speaks at a time.
KB: These things have been stolen from Anna Nicole Smiths home by Mr. Ford
DO: Speaking objection, you Honor. Objection.
KB: Well, I need to proffer what the problem is here. Heres the concern, if we start getting into what are account numbers and what are passwords and what did she have .he doesnt have control of any of this stuff .they [motioning to LB side of the courtroom] have it in their possession. That it was obtained through stolen means.
DO: Let the record reflect she is pointing to my table, that is inflammatory, its prejudicial and I want her censored. And sit down while youre at it. (to Barth)
KB: You know what? In addressing the court in Florida we actually stand out of deference to the court.
[OQuinn is whispering in DOs ear]
DO: Your Honor, I have given great deference over three days, where I come from we are respected.
Seidlin: Yes, Im going to allow you to ask your questions.
DO: And uh, may I please request that you ask her to stay in her seat?
HKS: Whats the question?
DO: Read back the question for Mr. Stern, please.
Seidlin: No, no dont go back .reading back. Thats the worst question you can do to a court reporter. You are making her heart jump fast. Plus it takes so much time. Just ask it again.
DO: What were all the names Anna Nicole Smith used?
KB: Same objection, your Honor, relevance.
Seidlin: Ill allow it. Let me see where she wants to go.
HKS: There was Anna Nicole Smith.
Seidlin: Shes got only a few minutes. Yes.
HKS: Theres Anna Nicole Smith, Vickie Marshall, Vickie Hogan, Vickie Smith. Then doctors uh some doctors prescribed things to her in different names, even though they knew it was for her. One of those names is Michelle Chase. Another one was Suzy Wong. These are at different times though. Um, at hotels she went by Mrs. Flintstone uh, I mean she went by a lot of different names, in different contexts.
DO: Did you often .
HKS: She went by Norma Jean
DO: Did you often pick up prescriptions for her at various pharmacies under these names?
HKS: I believe thats asked and answered.
Seidlin: Are you going to invoke any privilege?
Ron Rale: UHHHH, right to privacy of the decedent uh to the uh its [laughter] asked and answered ..uh .uh .uh
DO: It will be faster if he just answers it.
HKS: Look, I dont have a problem ..Anna Nicole .
Seidlin: One at a time!
JO: We are here to get the truth.
Seidlin: Texas, you got your line in. You can have a seat.
HKS: In Los Angeles, uh, Anna didnt drive. So .
DO: So the answer is yes sir?
HKS: I picked up prescriptions for her, yes. Other people did too.
DO: Thank you. Did you have a Bank of America debit card tied to Anna Nicole Smiths checking account?
HKS: Do I?
HKS: I think she got one, but it was after..
Seidlin: Rale, Rale you got to .
HKS: I think she got one, but it was never activated.
DO: Speaking objection your Honor. Objection
Seidlin: Wait, one voice. Theres only one voice to be heard in this courtroom.
RR: I know we havent had discovery, but in this instance I have to object on the basis of foundation. Because its kind of like the fruit of the poisonous tree. To the extent that I dont know where she is coming up with this information that we have .
Seidlin: Im going to give her some leeway. Shes been pretty quiet for a bunch of days.
RR: OK, thank you, your Honor.
HKS: I think she had one made in my name, and then we never activated it. And that was years ago.

HKS: Sure, with her permission.

Seidlin: How is this going to help us ..
DO: Are you the biological father of Dannielynn?
KB: OHHHH OBJECTION. Come on.
What is Anna Inc?
If Howard does have a pot to pee in, you can bet it's in someone else's name. Larry can sue him 'til the cows come home, but Howard's assets will be nil...on paper.
I remember someone telling me that it's difficult to discount heirs and the best way to do it is to give that person $1.00. The guy is a real SOB. When his mother died, (as Executor, he had full control of everything she had), he took the jewelry, coin collection and the CD's pasted to the back of her pictures on the wall and burnt everything else including pictures, furniture and all the other family stuff so his brother got absolutely nothing.
Bet his wife gets $1.00 when he dies and his favorite son gets it all. Oh, yeh...He's a millionaire but wouldn't give a dollar to charity.
Psychiatrist is haunted by celebrity death
posted by Sickmind Fraud : 3/18/2007 03:29:00 PM
As reported here Anna Nicole Smith's psychiatrist pal Khristine Eroshevich is haunted by the memory of her last chat with the tragic model, because she begged her friend not to leave her alone. But over looked in the report is the laundry list of drugs we reported earlier, which she had no problem filling out, and which was refused by more than one pharmacy.
As noted here,
Only in Los Angeles do psychiatrists suddenly pop up as best friends of their patients. It's unclear whether or not Eroshevich actually saw Smith as a patient or if she was just a hanger-on who got close to her in her later years.
This much is certain: It's Eroshevich's mug in the "ET" videos of the funeral, and all its tacky preparations. The good doctor happily gave quotes to the TV show, which sources say paid millions to Howard K. Stern for the right to have a landmark ceiling camera hovering over Smith's casket as it was rolled into the Bahamian church.
But back home, Eroshevich isn't all that popular with the other less famous people with whom she used to work.
One has to be suspicious, and I suspect that this is just another case of folks hanging on for the ride, looking to make as much as they can while they are able to.
Another case of Hollywood leeches. Pardon me if I am cynical, and file this under - deaths associated with "paparazzi shrinks"
Here is that report we mentioned at the top
Anna Nicole Smith's physician pal Khristine Eroshevich is haunted by the memory of her last chat with the tragic model, because she begged her friend not to leave her alone.
Eroshevich, who was in Florida with a vacationing Smith, admits she was with the star in the days leading up to her death and recalls her final conversation with her friend.
She says, "She was taking a bath and she was shampooing her hair and I had been with her in the morning. That was Wednesday. I was going back and forth, saying goodbye and she was crying, and she said, 'Please don't leave me,' and I left."
The Bahamas-based doctor tells US TV news show Entertainment Tonight she has felt terrible guilt ever since her friend's death a month ago.
She adds, "I often think, 'Should I have stayed? What would have happened?' Certainly, I could have saved her."
And Eroshevich is keen to play down reports Smith died after suffering a fever, revealing her late pal was recovering from an illness when she left her.
She explains, "She wasn't well... She did spike a fever on Monday night but she got better really quick... I never thought that anything would happen to her. I called that night and was able to find out what she had eaten... and she was doing well. I called in the morning too. I never dreamed (she'd die)."
I apologize if this has already been posted since I just started reading here, but I think the "so called" will speaks for itself! You can read it at http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2007/images/02/16/pleadings021607v2.pdf
It's amazing to me that Daniel is not even mentioned by name until the last paragraph, which names HKS as his GUARDIAN!! Almost the entire will is devoted to PROTECTING the EXECUTOR from any form of prosecution, or impropriety, and to ABSOLVE him from any QUESTION of IMPROPRIETY! It is insane! Not to mention that HKS is named as the first Executor of the Will AND the ONLY GUARDIAN of Daniel (which means he would be the "Trustee" of the Trust for Daniel). Since the Will states that the Executor has ABSOLUTE control of EVERY aspect of the Estate and can buy, sell, transfer, etc. any funds the Executor deems necessary, HKS would have basically been able to control (and SPEND) every dime of the Estate before Daniel turned 25!! I guess HKS found out that Daniel was ON TO HIM!! The whole WILL makes me SICK SICK SICK...I cannot believe any woman in a sound mind would have agreed to that crap! The whole will is about compensating the "Executor" aka HKS and covering the Executor's ass! Also, how funny that HKS was more than willing to 'give up being the Executor of ANS's Estate..withOUT ANY compensation"!! Yeah right!!! That leaves Ron Rales with complete access to any and all funds in the Estate and the ability to transfer (at his discretion) any amount of funds to the "Trustee" AKA Howard K. Stern!! It's insane to say the least!!
Oh my :( I hope you're feeling better this morning.
Damn, we need the time of ALL communications between KE and Howard.
Wow!! Awesome points that you made.
The house in the show didn't belong to her; it belonged to MTV.
SAN FRANCISCO - New evidence suggests Anna Nicole Smith may have been revising her will just five days before her mysterious death at age 39. A 2001 document released to the press was drafted before the birth of the late models daughter, Dannielynn and leaves everything to son Daniel, now deceased.
But a fax cover sheet unearthed by Web site TMZ.com, believed to be from the office of lawyer Ron Rale, shows that a copy of Annas will was faxed to an unknown recipient Feb. 3.
"How did the fax get to the media in the first place."
TMZ was the first media report. Looks like they're good at getting faxes.
So far I've found only a gossip site that pictures the purported fax cover sheet. Still looking for the original picture and story on TMZ.
I can see where the will might be "contested" on the grounds of Howards "undue influence" and "coercion", since Anna was under the influence of drugs and totally dependent upon Howard, who was in a position of "trust". He clearly took advantage of that.
It's strange tho. Anna did the same thing with the old man. She took advantage of him, as well.
Actually, it's a pretty standard will, including all the clauses and articles.
Here's one for yah - my daughter was 11 and my son was 5 -daughter had just gotten out of the tub - son was in a hurry to get in the tub. He happened to ask his sister when she was going to get "boobs". She got extremely embarrassed and said "I don't know - I'll just have to wait and see." He then asked "do you think you'll have to wait as long as Mommy's been waiting?"
It still bothers me that Howard said that he went right for the carotid artery for Daniel. Why that....Shake him...Call his name..."Daniel, Daniel...Come on kid...Wake up".
Going to do a little research on the carotid artery.
I think it (the will) may have been in that bunch of stuff that was taken from the Bahams house.
Anna died of a bad case of Karma.
That's what fascinates me about this case.
J. Howard Marshall dies and she and her son go at it. She fights for his body and then when she gets half leaves it in a funeral home. Pierce Marshall dies and a few months later her own son dies. He ends up being stuck in a funeral home while she's out getting high and getting faux married. She sells the footage of his funeral video but instead of using the money to help pay off her mortgage she buys a boat and a 10K ring. She ends up dead in Florida and her body is on ice for 3 weeks. Her will is a joke and will probably be contested. I think she's paid her karmic debt to J. Howard. Now he can look at the "rosebuds" for all eternity.
Karma ain't a bitch..it's a drug pushing lawyer named HKS.
Was Anna Nicole About to Change Her Will?
TMZ has obtained the cover sheet to a fax, sent six days before Anna Nicole Smith died, and it raises questions about Anna Nicole's intent to change her will.
The cover sheet shows the fax was sent on 02/03/2007 at 02:18. The fax contained the existing will of Anna Nicole. It lists a phone number with the initials RAR -- we believe that to be Ron A. Rale, Howard Stern's lawyer. It is unknown to whom the fax was sent, but as far as TMZ knows, Rale's only connection to Smith was Howard K. Stern.
We know Stern was concerned for Smith's well-being. TMZ has obtained a statement from Smith's former nanny in which she alleged Smith tried to take her life twice after Daniel died. Under the will, Stern was not protected. Daniel was the only beneficiary with Stern as trustee. As a result, Smith's infant daughter would inherit her mom's property outside the will, and unless Stern could prove he was the father, he would probably lose his claim to serve as trustee.
There's a serious question as to whether Smith was even mentally capable of changing her will. There is evidence she was on methadone, and video several months earlier shows she was almost incapable of functioning. Indeed, even on a segment of "Entertainment Tonight" that aired just days before her death, Smith seemed out of it.
The question -- was Stern in the process of changing Anna's will just before she died? And if so, is this an acknowledgement by Stern that Daniel's death derailed his position? Stay tuned.
Now, all we need to figure out is..Do DNA experts testify BEFORE a DNA is done..or AFTER one is done?
My daughter was 18 months old and every time my mother would come over to visit, she would push her down on the couch and take her shoes off. We thought 'ya little freak!' and laughed until we realized that when Mamaw took off her shoes, she was staying for a long visit. So in my baby's way, she was demanding she stay for a while. It was sweet.
Good. Did they give a first name?
Anna Nicole Smith Ex Larry Birkhead 'Rested & Ready' for Testing
By Brenda Davis
Mar 19, 2007
He was once the boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith. According to his testimony in a Florida courtroom, when Anna Nicole found out that she was pregnant with Dannielynn Hope she told photographer Larry Birkhead that he was the father. Birkhead noted that they later had a falling out, and that Smith eventually found her way to the Bahamas. It was there that tragedy struck. She gave birth to a baby girl, but just days later would lose her son. Daniel Wayne Smith died under what many are calling suspicious circumstances on the island. Months later, Anna would also perish on a trip to Florida. Now the battle is on to find out who is the biological father of the baby.
Anna Nicole Smith Ex Larry Birkhead 'Rested & Ready' for Testing
Last week reports slammed in from the Bahamas saying that a judge would now order DNA testing (and it is about time) and Birkhead says he is tanned, rested and ready. Nightly news entertainment show Access Hollywood reports that Birkhead could neither confirm nor deny the judges decision, he was clearly overjoyed immediately following the hearing last week.
In an interview he divulged: April will be like the greatest month of my life, Im hoping. I mean, you never know. You just hope for the best and Im pleased with what I heard today and Ill stay as long as I have to stay to get done what I need to get done, Birkhead explained. Tuesdays the day, Birkhead replied
Will you be able to sleep at all the next couple of nights, or will you sleep soundly now maybe? Access Hollywood's Tony Potts asked the likely father.
I think I might get a little more sleep, Birkhead sighed with a smile. Its getting a little bit better as each day as things become more positive and you have more time to deal with grief and things like that, so you know, I hope so.
LOL! Thanks. We seem to be following the same pages. Your copy is easier to see.
Another good one sod! Very appropo for Anna.
I am a true believer in "Karma", and trust me, Howard will get his just dues.
