Oh just bury the woman. I think she should be with her son.
BTW, that baby looks like G Ben. However his heirs will never allow him to claim paternity. Too many $$$$$$$$$$$$ at stake.
Just my opinion.

I am glad they are hearing this case. The first judge disregarded the legal fact that Anna already had next of kin, i.e. her mother. While the week long circus was entertaining, he ignored existing law and went solely on emotions. That is not what we have judges for.

Stern had no standing to file,a nd the judge said that when he was issuing his verdict. If he knew that already, why was there a trial?

Everyone connected to ANS is out for money!
The man that "owns" the house in the bahamas is selling it for a hefty profit. Vergie, Howard and Larry will probably sell pics and interviews. Everyone wants to lay claim to ANS estate due to the pending litigation with JPM.
Come on already let her rest in peace with her son. Granted if there was not a paternity suit then she probably would not have moved to the Bahamas but she did and that is where Daniel is.
I feel so sorry for Daniellynn she will never have a normal life. It just breaks my heart this innocent child is going to suffer so much for what? Money?

I'm still confused as to why Larry Birkhead is involved at all on where to bury his supposed ex-girlfriend's body. He was not her husband nor is he any relation to her and it still questionable whether or not he is the father of her daughter. She was an unmarried mother. Can anybody explain why his input is needed at all in this regard.
