For those who thought the death of Anna Nicole Smith was shrouded in mystery, investigators with the California Department of Justice agree. Friday morning, the department began serving arrest warrants in connection with the supermodel�s death, according to the Associated Press.

A source close to the case, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the case�s ongoing nature, said California Attorney General Jerry Brown was expected to make a formal announcement later Friday.
Since the former Playboy Playmate passed away of an accidental drug overdose in February, several names have been mentioned in connection with her death. Most recently, tabloids have implied that Smith�s lawyer and husband Howard K. Stern had schemed with Larry Birkhead, the father of Anna Nicole�s daughter, in an attempt to kill the reality show star.
But according to CBS News, they�re just two of several people close to Smith who have fallen under suspicion since her death. Among them, her psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich.
The Medical Board of California has been investigating Eroshevich since April. According to documents obtained by the Associated Press, the doctor authorized all 11 prescription medications found in Smith's hotel room the day she died.
Smith had been mourning the death of her son Daniel, who died of an accidental drug overdose just a few months before and just days after the birth of her daughter with Birkhead, 1-year-old Dannielyn Hope. Gay Link Content
