The verdict is in

US Magazine reports what killed Anna Nicole.

Authorities have revealed that nine drugs were found in Anna Nicole Smith's blood, causing her to overdose. According to Broward County medical examiner Dr. Joshua Perper, Smith died from a lethal combination of drugs and an infection from an abscess on her rear end, where she had been injecting herself with meds.

The drugs found in Smith's system included:

· Trichloroethanol (a sedative and hypnotic)

· Trichloroacetic acid (treatment of warts, including genital warts)

· Diphenhydramine hydrochloride (an antihistimine and sedative)

· Clonazepam (aka Klonopin; used for treating anxiety)

· Diazepam (muscle relaxant, used for treating anxiety, insomnia)

· Nordiazapam (sedative)

· Temazepam (a sedative and hypnotic)

· Oxazepam (a muscle relaxant and sedative)

· Lorazapam (anti-nausea, sedative, muscle relaxant)

Several days leaving up to her death on February 8th, Smith began experiencing chills, vomiting, and her temperature rose to 105 degrees, Dr. Perper said at the press conference Monday. On the morning she passed away, she reported feeling weak, needed help getting to the bathroom, and was found unresponsive and unsconcious hours later.

Holy crap!
How could she carry on as long as she did?
