Anna Nicole and Fuhrman
Some associations between Anna Nicole Smith and Mark Fuhrman's role in the Bundy murders are inevitable for obvious reasons. O.J. and Anna Nicole appeared in a movie together in 1994, the year O.J. was put on trial for murdering his ex-wife Nicole. Anna Nicole's stand-in for that movie was directly involved in the 911 call that Nicole made in 1993. That was the call where you can hear O.J. shouting and cursing at Nicole about a sex scene he witnessed the year before between her and Keith Zlomsowitch the boyfriend of Anna Nicole's Naked Gun 33 1/3 stand-in. In that 911 call you can hear Nicole telling the emergency operator before O.J. entered the house, "I think you know his record." The only record O.J. had was the one created by a letter to the city attorney that Mark Fuhrman wrote in February, 1989.
A string of apparently unrelated drug deaths beginning with Dr. Steven Ammerman in 1995 and seeming to end with Bill Wasz in 2005 proved to have one thing in common -- a close connection to Mark Fuhrman.
In Ammerman's death, Fuhrman's partner in the Bundy murders Brad Roberts was the lead detective. Their supervisor Ron Phillips assigned Roberts to the case. A few months later in January 1996 Phillips sent Roberts to investigate the death of Ammerman's friend, producer Don Simpson. Both deaths were ruled accidental.
In 1999 Fuhrman interviewed Greg Coleman in connection with Michael Skakel's alleged part in the 1975 Greenwich Connecticut murder of Martha Moxley. Shortly after Fuhrman's Murder in Greenwich book was published in 2000, Colman died when he injected himself with heroin laced with a deadly poison. His death was ruled accidental because of his history of drug abuse, as was the case with Ammerman and Simpson, and because the poison in his heroine came from a "bad batch" that killed other heroine users in the area of New York where Coleman lived.
In 2005 Bill Wasz, who claimed to have worked for Don Simpson and to have followed Nicole Simpson with instructions from O.J.'s friend Robert Kardashian to kill her, died of an interaction of drugs in his West L.A. apartment. Less than a week before his death Mark Fuhrman's name surfaced as the man behind his arrest on an expired warrant. When his body was found two days after he died, uniformed West LA officers were sent to the scene. The medial examiner ruled his death an accident because of his history of drug abuse and the apparent circumstances of his death. Fuhrman's friend, former partner and supervisor on the Bundy Murder case Ron Phillips was still in charge of West LA homicide. He determined that there would be no investigation because the cause of Bill Wasz's death was obvious.
20-year-old Daniel Smith's drug-related death in 2006 seemed to have nothing to do with Fuhrman until his mother Anna Nicole Smith died in 2007 under circumstances that aroused suspicions that she, too, was a drug victim. Fuhrman's televised commentary on the subject two days after her death linked both deaths to drugs and to Howard K. Stern, the man whose name was on her baby girl's birth certificate.
None of these things are sufficient to conclude that Fuhrman had anything to do with Daniel or Anna Nicole's death. They are more than sufficient to establish a link in his mind through a bridge of "accidental" drug deaths to the double homicide of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson.
As you study the photos on this page keep in mind that during the O.J. criminal trial in 1995 Fuhrman said that he was driving home from an LAPD Protective League seminar in La Quinta, CA when the Bundy murders occurred. In 1997 he gave his first detailed account of where he was during this time and what he was doing. He said he was in Pomona, CA, buying gas and a soft drink with a gold American Express credit card. Pomona was named after an obscure Roman goddess. The picture on that bank card is supposed to represent a Roman centurion. However, the plume and the hinged face guard on the side of the helmet turned upward on the bank card is more representative of a Roman officer like the one in a photo with Anna Nicole Smith (click on photo to enlarge). The photo was taken on July 24, 1994 in Caesar's Palace at the grand opening of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone's Planet Hollywood Restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada. The rank of a Roman centurion is actually equivalent to a master sergeant.
Mark Fuhrman's mother Billie lived in Las Vegas. Somewhere between his testimony in O.J. Simpson's preliminary hearing where his alibi did not come up and his March 1995 testimony when it did, he investigated the murder of a black retired U.S. Army master sergeant in Las Vegas. The victim's name and the date when Fuhrman and his partner Brad Roberts went to Las Vegas to investigate his death were never given. According to Fuhrman, he and Roberts got involved in the case because the body was found in the trunk of a car in West L.A. The retired master sergeant was bludgeoned to death in his home with a hammer.
Also keep in mind that bears and water are major recurring themes with Fuhrman, the Bundy murders, his Murder in Greenwich movie and his Mothers poem photo in Murder in Brentwood. The Mothers poem photo gives a symbolic representation of Nicole on the pavement. The "bear" photos in Anna Nicole Smith's "memorial" photo dated February 13 on the lawn of the Broward County Medical Examiner's lab gives a symbolic representation of Ron Goldmans body with a blue bear leaning to his right with his back against a tree. The scene is shot in three views. The last view clearly shows a second bear, a white one with a red ribbon around its neck, and a message written in longhand. These shots were reportedly taken by A.P. photographer J. Pat. Carter on February 13, 2007. The message comes from a song written by Welsh singer/songwriter Donna Lewis, "I Love You Always Forever."
