As the death of her son, Daniel Wayne Smith, remains "suspicious", Anna Nicole Smith is planning a second autopsy to make the cause of the death obvious.
Thus, a lawyer for the former Playboy playmate has been authorized to bring in a private pathologist to perform on the autopsy. "He is expected to arrive on Saturday and will complete his autopsy Sunday," head coroner Linda Virgill said Thursday Sept 14th.
"If he was not coming in, I would have released the body. The body of Daniel Smith remains at Princess Margaret Hospital is Nassau, and the body will definitely not be released until Monday or Tuesday", Virgill continued while adding "To date the cause of death is not known. We await the results of the toxicological and other analysis and the autopsy. A death certificate has not been issued."
