Death Certificate Issued For Daniel Smith
LATEST: A death certificate has finally been issued for ANNA NICOLE SMITH's son DANIEL, eleven days after his death on 10 September (06). Smith's attorney, MICHAEL SCOTT, says the certificate was issued so Smith can bury her son, pending the outcome of additional tests which are expected in the next two weeks. Daniel was found dead in his mother's hospital room after flying to the Bahamas to be with her soon after she gave birth to a baby girl. Scott explains, "It is not unusual in instances where the cause of death cannot be determined to issue a death certificate. This is not a matter of special treatment being given in this particular case." He says Smith is slowly moving forward with her life and has even filed a birth certificate for her new daughter and plans to stay in the Bahamas where she has been granted permanent residency. He adds, "She's much better. You never get over that, you get through it. Time is the catalyst for that."
