dbo:abstract
  • Catherine Evelyn Smith (born 25 April 1947 in Hamilton, Ontario) is an occasional backup singer, rock groupie, drug dealer, and legal secretary, who served 15 months in the California state prison system for injecting John Belushi with a fatal dose of heroin and cocaine in 1982. Smith had been paid for a front page headline story in the Hollywood tabloid the National Enquirer, where she stated she was the person who injected the actor with a fatal drug overdose. Smith co-wrote the book Chasing the Dragon (1984) which told her life story; its title alludes to Smith's heroin addiction. Smith appeared prominently in the Bob Woodward book Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi (1984) and was played by Patti D'Arbanville in the 1989 film version of Wired. (en)
