Miami - (Rioters): The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino room where ill-fated Playboy centerfold Anna Nicole Smith met her untimely death in February this year may have been hexed by a shaman according to new evidence.
The $800-a-day hotel suite, number 607, was under videotape monitoring two days before her death after a Seminole medicine man trashed part of it and imposed a curse following a dispute over beer prices from the in-room mini-bar.
Footage from the shamanic ritual has been sent to the local sherrif's office and shows a 69 year old man ritually cursing the suite, invoking demons and ordering the spirit of the Great White Whore Crone to summon up the Grim Reaper's retribution on the hotel suite.
A Seminole tribe source confirmed today that the footage was authentic but denied Anna Nicole Smith had been given the room deliberately to test the efficacy of the shamanic ritual.
"It was just some old guy ranting and raving after too much Jack Daniels," the spokesman said.
"We didn't think he had any particular power summoning up the Spirits of Death and Retribution but we called the cops and pressed charges for the damage.
"The room was given a thorough sponge-down and a lick of paint before Ms Smith and her entourage came to stay.
"Our lawyers advise to keep quiet about the rest..."
