The autopsy report revealing the cause of Anna Nicole Smith's Feb. 8 death will be released on Monday, and expounded on in a joint news conference with medical examiner Dr. Joshua Perper and Seminole police chief Charlie Tiger, the Associated Press reports. Until then - and for what it's worth, I hereby proactively qualify - a joint investigation by sister tabloids The Star and National Enquirer claims that Smith was felled by a lethal dose of the sleep aid chloral hydrate, which she allegedly took the night before and never woke up from. What's more, the tabs say Smith's death might have been avoided had she gone to a hospital for treatment of her fever, nausea and other infection symptoms (stemming from an infected injection site on her left buttock), rather than cope by using her own remedies.

Tune in to Anna Nicole: How She Died on the TV Guide Channel for in-depth coverage of her autopsy results. The special debuts Monday, March 26, at 2 pm/ET, and encores through March 28.
