    Anna Nicole reportedly OD’d on sedative

    MSNBC
    Updated: 12:45 p.m. ET March 23, 2007

    he results of Anna Nicole Smith’s autopsy are expected to be revealed Monday, but already two publications are claiming the model died from a toxic amount of sleep medication in her system.

    Star Magazine and the National Enquirer claimed Smith died from an overdose of the sedative chloral hydrate.

    Smith did not, the magazines reported, have methadone or other painkillers in her system when she passed away.
    Smith was already suffering from another ailment when she took the fatal overdose according to the magazines. Before leaving the Bahamas for Florida, they claim her buttocks were injected with a substance from an unsterilized needle, which caused a major infection.

    “As she boarded the plane for Miami, Anna Nicole developed a painful abscess at the site of the injection,” a source with knowledge of the case told the magazines. “The needle wasn’t sterile. The pain kept getting worse as the abscess got larger and larger very quickly.”

    After becoming very sick with a high fever Anna refused to go to the hospital. Instead her people treated her at the hotel. She reportedly had a high temperature, diarrhea, vomiting and was unable to pass fluids.
    “She was still vomiting and suffering diarrhea,” the source told the mags. “Again, she spent the whole day in bed, as the abscess continued to grow. She was in such pain, she just wanted to sleep.”

    The Enquirer and Star then said Anna Nicole took the overdose of chloral hydrate, the evening of February 7, leading to her death.

    Chloral Hydrate?! Lordy! You'd have to take a very large amount of that - by itself - to kill you. Over 10 grams easy. UNLESS she mixed it with alcohol. That forms Chloral Alcoholate - which is a powerful respiratory-depressant.

    It was the combination of the two that comprised the original, and infamous, concoction known as a "Micky Finn" - after the barkeep in Chicago who was known to use that on unruly patrons in the 1870's.

    So was it suicide or accidental I guess that is the question

    I'd change the possibilities to: Suicide or Stupidity?

    The real question is: Who gives a shit?

    Off hand - it appears Alfa. He started this dismal tome. But at least I can say the following with truth: I haven't got a clue of who she(?) was, or what she looked like. Anyone got any autopsy pics? We could paste 'em on blow-up sex-dolls and sell 'em for $$$ towards a new server!

    Call 'em a Chloral Die-Date Pleasure-Banger.

    Does chloral hydrate even exist anymore ?
    SWIM remembers when RC dealers in the US first appeared on the internet, they were selling alpha chloralose, which is a rat poison metabolized to chloral hydrate. SWIM always wondered who bought that stuff....

    a-Chloralose was used as a bird-repellant, according to my Merck Index. Monkey's I've met tried same. Reported it had effects like valium. Kid I knew found a one-pound bottle of U.S.P. Chloral Hydrate in his high school science locker. It is/was used in the synthesis of DDT. He stole it. There were a lot of goofy kids bumping into walls in his town. His parents found the empty bottle in his bedroom and called the police on him. When he explained he found this controlled drug laying around his school lab - the school refused to press charges. The matter was swept under the carpet.

    ^ Strange story indeed.

    News just reported that it was an accidental overdose. Saying that it was a combination of nine prescription drugs (only chloral hydrate was mentioned), a bad flu, and the infection she had from the dirty syringe.

    The other drugs that were in her system were announced. I missed a few. She also had methadone, methacarbamol, tramadol, lorazepam, carisoprodol, and ciprofloxacin in her system. She was injected with B-12 and the chloral hydrate was in liquid form.

    Doesn't really sound like her 'round the clock hired personal nurses were doing their job.

    sorry, bad joke
  16. Beeker
    so was she killed? money money money blah blah blah *sighs*
  17. Nagognog2
    I hope they bury her in a lead-lined coffin in a super-fund site.

    Funny thing is thou swia has know some people in the past to be able take benzos like sweets due to an immense in tolerance to the given drugs but this sort thing could of been an accident if she was tolerant to what she took. naturally thou CNS depressants will disagree with you sooner or later.
  19. Blue.. Like Water
    There seem to be conflicting reports according to the above posts.. I heard she did have Methadone inside of her though. Which would make sense. SWIM has a ton of experience with Methadone and although it almost never kills anyone on its own regardless of dosage, even a little Methadone with a little bit of a sedative kills many people who mix the two. SWIM just hopes it isn't phased out of use. Seriously folks, just stop mixing it with shit and it's actually a pretty safe drug.

    HAHA, here in the local paper they wrote she started with overdosing the growth hormone vitamin B12. This paper is big in Sweden. What they (the reporter/paper) didn't know, is that it is usual to poke 1g (I think) B12 into the buttock. It then stays there for long time (3 months?). Typical for sportsmen to take this. One can take big amounts of B12.. no worries.

    To me this is a story about the most famous prostitute and most famous John. What I find interesting, is that this case involves incredibly lot of money. First her son died, then she died. If it was to be the reverse, then the son would get money from Anna and if he then would have died, then probably her sons father would got money. I don't know the english word, I think it's called will. I have no clue about laws and wills in USA, but I like to think about conspirations and who knows what detective did what? I lean more towards murder than suicide. You find out, me read :p:p:p:p

    And this Bahamas kid.. drama continues.
