Did Pneumonia Kill Anna Nicole?
off of Tabloid Whore, though I've heard this from other sources as well:
Although toxicology results and cause of death have not been officially announced in death of Anna Nicole Smith, the National Enquirer is reporting that a horrible case of pneumonia did her in.
The Enquirer reports:"Preliminary findings reveal that tests performed during the autopsy show Anna Nicole had a severe case of pneumonia. Prescription drugs that she had taken made the condition worse and did play a role in her death. The full toxicology report has not yet been completed. Sources very close to the death investigation told The ENQUIRER that the prescription drugs masked the seriousness of her pneumonia. Anna Nicole had previously been hospitalized for pneumonia in the Bahamas after her son died. This time, the painkillers Anna Nicole was taking masked her symptoms and quickened the deadly effects of the pneumonia."
More details about this appear in the latest issue of The Enquirer.
Considering Anna Nicole had a 105 degree fever the day she died, this news is not surprising. That kind of fever is never normal. The saddest part of it is that I saw Anna's bodyguard Moe on a couple interviews and he said they wanted to take her to the hospital earlier because of the fever, but didn't when Anna begged them not to. Word is she didn't want to deal with the publicity. How ironic.
