Elliot Smith's Death Probed

Singer/songwriter ELLIOT SMITH's apparent October (03) suicide is being questioned by police officials, who can't determine whether the stab wounds that killed him were self-inflicted.

Los Angeles police initially called the death of the OSCAR-nominated singer a suicide, but an autopsy report suggests that might not be the case.

Coroner's spokesman DAVID CAMPBELL has, however, confirmed Smith died from two "penetrating stab wounds" to the chest, adding, "The trauma that he sustained could have been inflicted by him or by another."

The case into Smith's death will remain open and officials will revisit their findings if new information is received.
