Inquiry into death of Daniel Wayne Smith

NASSAU, Bahamas, September 25, 2007 – An inquest into the death of the son of former Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith is set for late next month.

After repeated postponements of an official inquest, a senior judge in the Bahamas Monday said one would begin on October 30 and could last as long as two months.

Daniel Smith, 20, died at the Doctors Hospital, Nassau last September, just three days after his mother gave birth to daughter, Dannielynn.

He was buried in The Bahamas after a private autopsy found a cocktail of drugs in Smith’s bloodstream.

Anna Nicole died in February and was also buried next to her son in The Bahamas. Custody of her daughter has gone to photographer Larry Birkhead, who was eventually proven the father by a DNA test. (
