Anna Nicole Smith to Have Second Autopsy on Son, Daniel Smith


The story continues to get stranger and stranger. It appears that Anna Nicole Smith has been given permission to have a second private pathologist to perform an independent autopsy on Daniel Smith. It was earlier reported that the autopsy performed by the Bahamas was to be released today. However, even prior to any autopsy finding, Anna Nicole Smith has requested that a second one be performed.

The results of Daniel Smith’s autopsy have yet to be released, but Anna Nicole Smith is already calling for a do-over.

The Bahamian coroner’s office has authorized the former reality star to bring in a private pathologist to perform a second autopsy on her 20-year-old son, who died suddenly last Sunday.

UPDATE: Pathologist hired for Smith body autopsy

Cyril Wecht, a forensic pathologist from Pittsburgh who has consulted in high-profile cases including the deaths of

Elvis Presley and Jon Benet Ramsey, was hired to conduct the second autopsy, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported on its Web site Saturday.

and Jon Benet Ramsey, was hired to conduct the second autopsy, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported on its Web site Saturday.”What he does, he’s world-class at,” Wecht’s attorney, Jerry McDevitt, told the newspaper. “If you want the best, you call Cyril Wecht.”

Wecht did not immediately return phone messages left at his home and office by The Associated Press.

Michael Scott, a Bahamian lawyer for Smith, declined to comment on the request for another autopsy at his law office on Friday.

The families of other foreigners who have died while visiting the island chain have requested separate autopsies, Reginald Ferguson, assistant commissioner of the Royal Bahamas Police Force, told The Associated Press.

      Hey I can understand that one.

    2. mamagee on September 15th, 2006 2:18 pm

      Will she be calling on Pathologist from the United States?

    3. mamagee on September 15th, 2006 2:53 pm

      How could this story get any more wierd? Well, the Attorney could be the father of the baby. ANS may eventually die of an “overdose” like Marilyn Monroe did. That would leave the Attorney and his daughter as the only heirs. Hmmmm.

    4. mamagee on September 15th, 2006 2:56 pm

      By the way, I read that her Attorney was the 3rd person in the room. Also that staff heard her yell “you caused this” when her son collapsed.

    5. Miss-Underestimated on September 15th, 2006 3:03 pm


      Do you know for sure that the daughter is Howards?

    6. justinsmama on September 15th, 2006 3:10 pm

      I think that I would request the same if it were my family member.

    7. Miss-Underestimated on September 15th, 2006 3:48 pm

      You can see the tone that the Bahamian govrmt is setting, you see a system that is working for all involved. They have given her permission, they said they would not release the autopsy reports with our Annas consent. So far the Bahamas seems to be working with the family.

    8. KELMAL on September 15th, 2006 3:57 pm

      I think it is fishy. Why won’t they release the autopsy reports?? Because she wants HER autopsy and HER findings to be released. You see she spends ALOT of her MONEY in the Bahamas and the Bahamas do NOT want to loose that money.IMO the Bahamas will do what Nicole wants them to do.

      Are you stalking me?

    10. Miss-Underestimated on September 15th, 2006 4:12 pm

      Besides if you do investigations correct you have no problem for second opinions, unless of course you are hiding something.

    11. KELMAL on September 15th, 2006 4:31 pm

      Miss-U, Maybe this is why Aruba asked Holland to come down and give a second opinion ???? Now it makes sense to me !!!

    12. Maggie on September 15th, 2006 4:40 pm

      I would want a second autopsy also, after that guy from Trinidad and Tobago who was misdiagnosed in Aruba. No clue what is going on in this story. Earlier in the week they said they knew the cause of death, but were waiting until today to release it.

    13. KELMAL on September 15th, 2006 4:49 pm

      Maggie, I agree 100%. The way the investigation has gone so far they need to do another autopsy!!!

    14. defiant_wench on September 15th, 2006 4:59 pm

      #8 – Now how did I know this was a kelmel comment before I even got to the “Comment by” section. You are such an idiot!

    15. defiant_wench on September 15th, 2006 5:01 pm

      I think the media is making this into a bigger mystery than it really is. Now that we’re in the age of the super information highway, we want answers immediately. Well it just doesn’t happen that way. Let’s just wait and see what happens.

    16. bandit on September 15th, 2006 5:02 pm

      Larry Birkhead, paprazzi photographer, assumed paternity responsibility in June. He was sueing for custody and that is why she went to the Bahamas. He is her ex-boyfriend and even has the sonogram of the baby and apparently really is serious about the custody.

    17. KELMAL on September 15th, 2006 5:59 pm

      wench # 15. I agree 100%. The MEDIA is making it a bigger mystery than it is. They do this with MANY OF THE BIG STORIES !! It is OVERKILL !! It also is called RATINGS. When the ratings are HIGH on a story they have it on 24/7. As soon as the ratings DROP, the story is never heard of again.

    18. Sheri in Michigan on September 15th, 2006 6:13 pm

      TO KELMAL: Alias Joran van der sloot or close to it!

      Sheri in Michigan, I take it you did NOT like it when they gave Paulus that MONEY !!! Am I correct ??? What part of Michigan are you from ???


      SM:Â   Last I heard his award was being appealed, I don’t think Paulus has gotten any money yet (klaasend)

    21. Sheri in Michigan on September 16th, 2006 4:56 am

      REGARDING: #20
      Thanks SM for the comment that you think Paulos won’t be receiving any money……I hope he goes down the drain just like Aruba is!

      Kelmel: I live in the “great part” of Michigan, what’s it to you?

      Carpe: The first picture is “sickening”. I hope Joran only gets a date where the female is smart enough and just takes him for a ride…..a ride that will end with the mysterious disappearance of poor, poor Joran!

    22. KELMAL on September 16th, 2006 10:26 am

      Sheri, I live in Brighton, Mi. Just wondering if you live near by ??? Paulus will get the money alright. There is just an appeal, which means nothing. EVENTUALLY he will get the $$ MONEY !!! Why does that make you mad ??? Just shows you how dumb Aruba is !!! Would you send youd daughter there ???

    23. Carpe Noctem on September 16th, 2006 12:06 pm

      Yeah, but what is the net after Joe gets paid.

      If Joe slips out a little tootski it’s gonna run ya

      Joe is gettin’ will be gettin his cut right?

    24. KELMAL on September 16th, 2006 1:26 pm

      Yea he gets his cut but his BIG payday will be when Joran gets his MONEY for being put in jail. Only in Aruba !!!!!!!!!!!

    25. Carpe Noctem on September 16th, 2006 1:43 pm

      Ya whatever, When hell freezes over… I think Paulas will get a fraction of what was promised anyway, they’ll tie it up until he croaks. I don’t blame them either!!! IMO Who wants
      a raping murdering pedophile like Paulus Raping Van der Slut
      walking away with Aruban cash

      … especially when people who do not
      rape and kill like ABRAHAM AND MICKEY were in three times
      as long as that wuzlick little flea bag of a li’l man!

      Give Mickey and Abraham Paulus’s cut. Paulus
      couldn’t find his dinkus with a 12 volt flashlight,
      tweezers, and a schematic.

      Only in Aruba, man.

    26. KELMAL on September 16th, 2006 2:08 pm

      Carpe, Why so much ANGER about PAULUS getting his money. It’s nothing out of our pockets. Let Aruba suffer. I hope Joran gets millions !!!!


      SM:   What do you GAIN if Joran gets millions Kelmal??   Just curious? (klaasend)

    27. KELMAL on September 16th, 2006 2:40 pm

      klas, I get nothing !! It will just sink Aruba much faster. To hell with that island !!
      REVENGE FOR NATALEE !!!!!!!!!!!!!


      SM:   Kelmal – there is a big difference between revenge and justice.   What we want is justice and until that happens Aruba’s tourism will most likely suffer.   There is no formal boycott, it’s each individual persons choice.   It appears alot of Americans are choosing not to go to Aruba, thus the drop in tourism. (klaasend)

    28. KELMAL on September 16th, 2006 3:44 pm

      Most of us know that there is ZERO chance for justice. Therfore You can NOT boycott for justice when there can’t be any. So justice turns to REVENGE. There are still a few people who think we will get justice and if you are one of them so be it. The TRUTH is Aruba will NEVER tell us the TRUTH no matter what !!

    29. Carpe Noctem on September 16th, 2006 7:19 pm

      Pfffffffft. Whatever, DUTCH OVEN bro bro.

      Justice 4
      Natalee Ann
