Virgie Arthur, Larry Birkhead, and Howard K. Stern are all over at the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office during the lunch break from court proceedings in the Anna Nicole Smith case, "EXTRA" is reporting. The case has been in recess since just after Noon EST, and is not scheduled to be in session until 2.30 PM EST.

Medical Examiner Joshua Perper called directly into the bench this morning to inform the court that the body was in "very good" condition, but repeated his assertion from Tuesday afternoon, that Smith's body is decomposing more rapidly than originally expected. He added that a decision would be better made within the week as to the future disposition of the body, in order to give it a proper burial.
