'Serious Evidence' Uncovered in Anna Nicole Smith Death

California authorities investigating Anna Nicole Smith's untimely death have served two of her doctors search warrants and raided six different locations, including their offices and residences.

State Attorney General Jerry Brown says that detectives had 'serious evidence' in the case, but didn't want to elaborate: "We've learned quite a lot, but we don't want to jeopardize the investigation by prematurely releasing what we've found. I'm not going to speculate on charges. But someone is dead."

The doctors being targetted are Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and psychiatrist Dr. Khristine Eroshevich. They were served with a total of eight warrants. Interestingly, Smith's attorney and companion, Howard K. Stern, was at Eroshevich's home when agents showed up with the warrants. Eroshevich authorized all 11 prescription medications found in Smith's hotel room the day she died, and Kapoor prescribed methadone to Smith shortly before.

Methadone is a popular narcotic painkiller that is used as part of drug addiction detoxification and maintenance programs. Methadone overdoses can cause shallow breathing and dangerous changes in heart beat.

More than 600 pills, including 450 muscle relaxants, were missing from prescriptions that were no more than five weeks old.
