The independent medical examiner hired by Anna Nicole Smith to look into her son Daniel's death said yesterday that he could not determine exactly what killed the young man, but ruled out several natural causes such as heart disease, stroke, or a "congenital anomaly," and added that foul play was probably not involved. However, TMZ has been told by authorities that the cause of death has been known definitively for more than a week.

"I don't find anything that would cause me to believe there is something in terms of some traumatic injury that was inflicted, or somebody having done something to him in some cryptic manner that could not be observed," said Cyril Wecht, a forensic pathologist who consulted on the deaths of Elvis Presley and Jon Benet Ramsey.

Wecht told reporters that he had ordered Daniel Smith's medical records from the United States and that he had ordered more tests that could take weeks to complete; what's more, he has sent samples to a lab in the US for testing, including toxicology tests. The toxicology report from Bahamian officials is due this week, and an inquest into Daniel Smith's death will begin October 23.

I read this on Gawker- they are jumping to a conclusion to speculate that Anna Nicole is herself involved in selling the photos (but that's gawker's style). You can see them on www.gawker.com if you wish, I wouldn't post them. The ones with Daniel are just heartbreaking obviously

"As first reported on Friday afternoon, Getty Images sent an email out to celebrity weekly editors hawking photos of Anna Nicole Smith, her newborn daughter, and her son, Daniel. The pictures were taken in the Bahamian hospital where, the next day, Daniel was found mysteriously dead. For an initial asking price of $200K, Getty would provide a handful of the tender! heartbreaking! tragic! images, the only caveat being that the buyer had to refrain from running the photos with any sort of negative press -- which may be easier said than done if and when toxicology reports are released.

By the day's end, In Touch had supposedly bought the photos for well over $300K ($375K was the number we'd heard tossed around). But the real question: who made the profit? Did Getty happen to have a photographer covering the Bahamian hospital beat? Or did someone from Anna Nicole's camp hand over the family Powershot for a last-minute profit to be brokered by Getty? And if so, is Anna Nicole really sick, or really smart?"

I don't know the first thing about autopsies, is it possible to perform multiple autopsies and still not know the reason for death.


Wait, I know a morgue guy, I'll ask him. I'll come back with his answer.
After speaking w/ a friend who does autopsies for a living:

He says that albeit rare, it is possible to perform an autopsy and find no cause of death. If someone does 5 autopsies a day, it's certainly possible that something can be missed due to human error. Also, the first autopsy was done in the Bahamas which does not have the highest technology or sometime the most highly trained personel. Take it for what it's worth.

Say it ain't so! It appears that the last photos of Anna Nicole Smith's son Daniel Smith at her hospital bedside that have been sold via Getty Images actually belonged to Anna herself! This means that she is the party receiving the proceeds of sales of the images. According to the New York Daily News, Anna will be making $600,000 from the photos of herself, son Daniel and daughter Hannah Rose. Beating out People who only offered $350,000, In Touch magazine received the print exclusive in exchange for $400,000 while "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider" bought their television exclusive for $250,000.

Word is that some of the proceeds will be used for a memorial for Daniel. That's a heck of a memorial. It has also been rumored that Anna wanted the photos released to show people that her son did not seem depressed or suicidal, since assumptions have been made as such.

A spokeswoman for In Touch told the Daily News, "There is an incredible amount of emotion attached to this story and the photos, and our story will be a tribute to Daniel's life as a well as a celebration of it." That's a very nice thought but the whole thing just smacks of tackiness to me. If I suffered such a loss, I doubt the last thing on my mind would be to sell something. Then again, Anna also profited from her pregnancy, so why am I surprised?

Even the alleged baby daddy, Larry Birkhead, is profiting from this tragedy. According to the Daily News, he is making a two-part appearance on Entertainment Tonight.

I feel that's in poor taste for her to publish the photos.

Oooohhhhh this is horrible to share these pics with the general public ESPECIALLY taking money for them!! Horrible! Anna should be adamant and stay strong that there is nothing to hide and that her son was fine, why should she feel the need to prove he looked a certain way or acted a certain way?

I'm sorry, but Anna Nicole Smith has always seemed like an attention deprived, money hungry skank.

This doesn't shock me at all. Look at her track record: She's appeared in soft-p0rn on cable tv on the Cinemax channel (those late late night adult shows), she uses her body to sell any product put in front of her, is a former stripper, married an old old old billionaire (out of love I'm sure), had a dumb reality show.....the list goes on and on. She's not exactly a person w/ a high moral fiber.

I read about her selling the pictures in the paper today and my first thought was, she's making money from this tragedy? I can't pretend to know what's she going through or why she felt that this was a good decision, just seems wrong given what happened to her son (whatever did happen). I thought it was better that she was staying out of the spotlight right now while she deals with his death privately. But given her past, sounds like she'd rather turn her son into a headline than to honor his life.

Like I said, she seems like a money hungry attention whore! Why doesn't she keep the entire thing private, who cares what happened to her son, and focus on being a new mother and nurturing this new child she just brought into the world.

Because that would be the normal healthy thing to do.

E! News learned exclusively Wednesday that the first of three toxicology tests performed on Smith's son, Daniel, turned up no traces of illegal substances in his bloodstream.

Anna Nicole's attorney and confidante, Howard K. Stern, said that, as expected, doctors found the antidepressant Lexapro and sleeping medication Ambien in Daniel's system but not at levels that could have caused his sudden death Sept. 10 at age 20.

The first toxicology report was based on blood drawn at the hospital in the Bahamas where Daniel died while visiting his mom, who had given birth to a baby girl three days earlier, Stern told E! News. The reality TV star is still waiting for the results of tox screens from each of the two autopsies performed on Daniel's body. Both autopsies ruled out various natural causes of death (heart disease, stroke, birth defect, etc.) but did not lead to a definitive answer.

Bahamian officials finally issued a death certificate Wednesday and released Daniel's body to Anna Nicole, who has been so devastated by the loss of her son that she suffered memory loss shortly after it happened, requiring Stern to break the news to her a second time. Another of Anna Nicole's lawyers, Michael Scott, has since said the TrimSpa spokesmodel is doing much better and was hoping for more information from the various tests being conducted.

Meanwhile, David Giancola, the director of the sci-fi film Anna Nicole recently starred in, Illegal Aliens, told E! News that Daniel Smith, who worked as an apprentice on the movie, had been hospitalized off and on in August to be treated for an elevated heart rate. Giancola said that Daniel lost nearly 30 pounds during that time and suffered from constant stomach pain.

hmmmm.....that is interesting. Do those prescirbed drugs have any history of complaints asscoiated w/ increased heart rate or stomach pains?

According to Webmd, Lexapro can be associated with very rapid heartbeat-but that is considered a rare side effect. Ambien can be a very dangerous drug, I know someone who used to take it and it really messed them up physically and mentally. They were addicted to it too.

Allegedly there were heart problems in Anna Nicole's family-she had a very young cousin who died of a stroke. Very young people can have heart conditions that are never diagnosed. I just wish he had seen a doctor when he had those symptoms and when he lost 30 lbs. Maybe he did but it doesn't seem likely.

my son had a heart condition that went undetected while in utero by some very modern/expensive tests. It turns out he had a hole in a very rare place that most doctors would miss.

So, you never know.

Did he take TrimSpa? I've been wondering about that.
