Was Anna Nicole Smith's son murdered?
Anna Nicole Smith's son, Daniel Wayne, died in a Bahamian hospital room while visiting his mother who had just given birth.
It took the world by surprise. Daniel was always portrayed as "the good kid" on their reality program "The Anna Nicole Smith" show on E! However, his autopsy reports say he died of a lethal mix of two prescription drugs, methadone and lexapro. Methadone is used to treat heroin addicts and increasingly used as a recreational drug. Lexapro is an anti-depressant.
How did the good guy die of an overdose? Is it possible that he wasn't as straight-laced as we all thought? Or was he murdered?
Anna Nicole's estranged mother says someone killed Daniel Wayne. Speaking as if she has seen the toxicology results (and I don't know if she has), Virgie Arthur told the Sun: “It was murder. The levels of drugs in his body are way too high. Someone has to pay.”
Shortly after Daniel's death and prior to Anna Nicole's, Virgie Arthur told the media she suspected that Howard K. Stern had killed Daniel to clear a path to Anna Nicole's millions coming her way from the estate of her late husband J. Howard Marshall.
Bahamian authorities are investigating Daniel Wayne Smith's death.
