Anna Nicole Smith Supports Investigation
Anna Nicole Smith supports a formal inquest to determine how her 20-year-old son Daniel died last Sunday, her Bahamas-based lawyer, Michael Scott said Thursday. "She fully wants this process to take place and she wishes the public to not jump to conclusions and to wait for the conclusion of the proceedings," said Scott, according to the Associated Press.
Currently Smith is resting and is said to be devastated. "It's going to take a long time to heal. She's in seclusion and she wants some privacy" revealed Scott.
Police also revealed new revelation about Daniel’s death. "There was nothing unusual noticed about the condition of the room," assistant commissioner for the Royal Bahamas Police Force Reginald Ferguson said at a press conference Thursday. However Daniel had been found lying on a bed, one of two in the hospital room, not sitting upright in a chair as they had said previously. They declined to provide further details about the investigation.
A toxicology report is expected today, although officials said its findings will be not be revealed until the start of a jury inquest scheduled to start Oct. 23. Smith, hospital staff and others who saw Daniel on the night of his death are expected to be called to testify.
Her Majesty's Coroner Linda P. Virgill said that once the toxicology report is completed, Daniel's remains will be transported home to California.
