Anna Nicole Smith
Autopsy report shows that Anna Nicole Smith died from a "combined drug intoxication" rather than suicide, according to Reuters.

Medical examiner Joshua Perper found that in the days before her death, she had been taking large amounts of the sedative chloral hydrate, which also contributed to the 1962 overdose death of Smith's idol, Marilyn Monroe.

Dr Perper said that Smith might have been unaware that the sedative could be fatal in combination with the multiple prescriptions she was taking for anxiety, depression and insomnia.

Contributing factors included her weakened condition from stomach flu and a 40 deg C fever brought on by a pus-filled infection on her buttocks from repeated injection of other drugs.

Dr Perper said in his report that 'Miss Smith has a long history of prescriptioin drug abuse and self-medicated in the past.'
