Mom last one of the AP reporters who broke this story earlier today -- joins -- in San Francisco Paul what happened.
Good evening Greta this morning.
California Department of Justice investigators.
Yielding eight search warrant raided six locations.
Connected to two doctors who had prescribed Anna Nicole Smith.
Powerful prescription medication in the days and weeks before her death.
The first -- -- pour.
A medical doctor had prescribed her method done a very painful.
Painkiller prescribed to usually prescribed here when -- addicts to help wean.
Their their addiction.
The second Christine -- -- image is or was.
And as psychiatrist and traveling companion who had okayed the eleven drugs found that -- hotel room and body on the day of her death.
Beyond that the attorney general Jerry Brown didn't offer very -- -- -- it even tell us that we just had a piece that together ourselves but beyond that we don't know what the the raiders that took away.
Or what they're looking for attorney general brown declined to specify exactly what crimes is investigating.
And left open the possibility of a wide range anything from over prescribing.
To -- homicide he was asked directly at his press conference whether he was investigating homicide he wouldn't say no he wouldn't say yes he just that he wouldn't go there that's where we are today.
I right now -- -- -- with the real looking at pharmacies doctors what about any lay people we knew she was surrounded certainly ended in the days before she died she was around several people -- in those people under investigation.
Indeed not not that we know up I mean I don't know we don't know and know what publicly stated other than these two doctors -- average.
And support are under investigation.
But where this investigation goes from today we we can't say and and brown isn't talent so I guess -- out gets eroded in.
Eight search warrants six locations.
-- never -- -- you had to identify the actual locations like offices homes.
Airship which is there a shot -- apparently has three.
Offices those were hit.
As well as her home where.
Was that no excuse me -- Gregory -- of -- design house is rated as well as.
At -- -- house in office was rated as well the storage facility.
Do you not Howard K.
Stern was it erosion which is home which incidentally if you -- that the downside of hard -- he was actually in her home when the search for hours exceeded and her home is right next door to Anna Nicole Smith's home which of course now has occupied by baby Danny Lynn and her father.
Larry Birkhead right right apparently.
Eric Phillips was watching Howard K.
Stern is dobbs well he was new York and he had that returned.
Back there -- house early Friday morning just before the raid commenced.
So is coincidentally is is going to pick up his dogs any shows up there and at the same time bad luck these warrants have been -- -- According to his attorney and his attorney has told us that Howard K.
Stern is not president -- -- have this investigation that was attorney tells.
Have you heard -- from anybody in.
But his lawyer that he was just there to pick up -- dogs or that he is not the -- England but his lawyer.
No but I haven't really asked anyone else other than as a lawyer right of course that's an ongoing investigation -- Paul standby.
And then -- today's search warrant to be followed by arrest warrants that's primarily a panel.
Golf course is still with us and -- -- joining us there's former assistant DA Jim -- Washington defense -- Ted Williams and Southfield Michigan is defense attorney.
Geoff Fieger Geoff who should be nervous tonight.
All of the above including Howard K Smith which is started going to a stern excuse me he's not the newscaster -- right.
If it's not in assists is.
His claim against Rita Cosby's that he was in the house that was rated.
He is -- an essential.
Figure in that drug investigation he's the one who supplied the drugs -- -- even admitted.
Purchasing a number of drugs even if he's not eventually indicted Greta.
His involvement in that cannot help a -- would be this in a libel and slander case which will talk about a little later.
His involvement in that drug investigation is going to be come facts that are relevant against him.
Jim one of the most stunning -- little piece of information that the attorney general California Jerry Brown set -- -- -- picked it up but the law enforcement agencies that are involved the DEA that means the feds are involved in this.
But he also said the seminal tribal.
Which to me is giant because now we're talking a -- that's that's where she died she died in any in a casino within their -- -- her hotel there.
Any any of -- says you listen to brown.
Well I I think Jeff fires very Smart defense lawyer to say everybody's in trouble I mean listen the fact of the matter is that she died from these drugs we all know that the point is there are many.
Causes leading up to that the doctors have described it unlawfully apparently the people who gave it -- people who didn't say no.
The question is -- any of the -- level approximate cost to get a homicide charge out of it.
And I think nobody is out of the woods yet.
I -- -- in men that finally these doctors are -- to be brought to account.
Is leading back to Elvis up till now celebrities like this are are are frankly fall victims to two people sucking up -- -- and given stuff that kills.
And what what you didn't hear that the -- -- press conferences have gone through something like a 100000 documents or something extraordinary since the -- that's why it took so long that's what's been going and still going on -- your thoughts on.
Exactly well -- I believe bought everybody is certainly -- being looked at but I.
Do not believe they have been looked at as have a homicide I think they're probably looking -- over prescribing but one of the problems -- And I believed to a homicide assuming there is -- that -- Medical diagnosis -- of course everything outcome question what ferber said and we that's a whole another discussion.
But but again it'll be very different product right to prove in light of the fact that doctor Barbara out there Randolph -- -- already said it was an accidental logged out.
But I do believe that wanted to -- bad they all look Canadiens the license a bowl for these doctors are and that also could be in an in serious jeopardy.
But I don't believe also Greta this is eight months late a lot of evidence perhaps by now has been destroyed this I mean you know that they're good if so or its revenue announcement and what hasn't dead -- that it yeah.
Read the numbers later and it went about it what would not be destroyed if the paper trail that paper trail -- all I drive -- major.
There are guys that he permits are originated out quick break up now stand by going to be more -- later.
