Anna Nicole Smith Update

Anna Nicole's last days: Drinking from baby bottle - CNN.com: "For the first time, many of the tragic details of Smith's final hours are being revealed in court. The first witnesses took the stand this week in Los Angeles to determine whether Howard K. Stern, 40, Khristine Eroshevich, 61, and Sandeep Kapoor, 41, should stand trial on felony charges of conspiring to give dangerous drugs to an addict through fraudulent means, such as by using fake names.

Powerful, tragic testimony

The hearing, which follows a two-year investigation into Smith's death, began with a bang. Maurice Brighthaupt, Smith's security guard, described watching Smith slurp from a baby bottle of the powerful sedative chloral hydrate -- cited by a coroner as a primary cause of Smith's fatal overdose -- as if it were a Pepsi."

  1. I wonder how much this 2 year "investigation" is costing taxpayers?

  2. Chloral Hydrate is the famous Mickey Finn, used by bartenders and others on the Barbary Coast to roll customers. An overdose is lethal. I didn't know the stuff is still around.
