FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Prosecutors in South Florida are taking a fresh look at evidence in the 2007 death of actress-model Anna Nicole Smith.
Broward County prosecutors met recently with authorities in Los Angeles and the California Department of Justice, said a spokesman for State Attorney Michael Satz.
That follows the indictment March 13 in California of Smith’s former boyfriend Howard K. Stern and two doctors on charges of conspiring to illegally prescribe drugs for Smith.
Broward County prosecutors want to see if any evidence in that case might lead to a new investigation in Florida.
Ron Ishoy, a spokesman for the Broward County State Attorney’s Office released the following statement to Access Hollywood:
“Our prosecutors have met with representatives of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the California Department of Justice and discussed the evidence they have turned up in their investigation. We are now examining that evidence to see where it might lead in relation to Ms. Smith’s death here in Broward County in 2007.”
Smith died Feb. 8, 2007, in Florida after collapsing at a hotel. She was 39. Her death was ruled an accidental drug overdose.
