Lethal Drug Mix Killed Anna Nicole Smith's Son



The death of Anna Nicole Smith's 20-year-old son Daniel was caused by a lethal combination of methadone, Zoloft and Lexapro.

There it is, after the many chatter and speculation, the cause of Anna Nicole Smith's son's death is now about to become obvious.

A second round of toxicology tests showed Daniel Smith had methadone, Zoloft and Lexapro in his system when he died Sept. 10 in a hospital room in the Bahamas where his mother gave birth to a baby daughter.

Methadone is used to treat heroin addiction. Forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht said methadone and the two antidepressants combined to fatally speed up the younger Smith's heart. "It's not possible to say [it was] one [drug] over the other. There's no way. It's a cumulative effect."

On the issue of Daniel's suicide, Wecht commented, "Absolutely not. Classically, you take one drug to overdose. You don't need three drugs." Also he added, "The fact that we have these drugs and the levels of the drugs overwhelmingly and most logically point to this being a tragic, accidental, drug-related death".
