Will Anna Nicole's Son Be Exhumed?

3/1/2007 11:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Daniel SmithThe biological father of Daniel Smith wants his son's body exhumed and moved from the Bahamas to Texas.

In a letter obtained by TMZ, Billy Smith -- through his lawyer, Kara S.P. Butler -- is asking The Chief Magistrate of the Bahamas, Roger Gomez, "permission to have the remains of Daniel Wayne Smith (deceased) exhumed from its current location here in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas and to be transferred where his father and family reside in the State of Texas."

Anna met Billy Smith at Jim's Krispy Fried Chicken in Mexia, Texas, where they both worked as teenagers. They married in 1985, and Daniel was born the following year.

I am glad the father wants the son buried in the USA. Daniel was born here, lived here and should be buried in the USA! Both Anna and her son have nothing to do with the Bahamas. Other then Larry, they are all after some kind of money, Howard and Virgie. But if that was my daughter, i would be damned if i couldn't bury her were i wanted to!
Yes, she belongs with her son, i got that point but nobody lives in the Bahamas. Again they are AMERICANS bury them in AMERICA!

#20 -- I heard exactly what he said. He said he wanted them buried in Texas. They then asked him if he wanted Daniel's body exhumed and he said No. THEN he said he wanted them buried together.....PERIOD. THEY assumed he meant in the Bahamas.

I was watching it and said to my friend, I bet he doesn't know what exhumed means. LOL That's why I remember what he said!

What a loser! Wonder who is paying for his "attorney", since when testifying he said he was unemployed. Then again, wonder who is paying for all of Virgie's lawyers??? Say what you want about Howard K. Stern, but at least he admitted that he had to borrow from his parents to pay all his expenses.

OMG . . .clearly Virgies offered him a huge wad of cash to do this! In the court hearing, when HER lawyers got him on the phone to ask where he thought Anna Nicole wanted to burried, he clearly stated the Bahamas next to Daniel - and aksed if he would want Daniels body exhumed - he CLEARLY said NO!!!! NOW, all of a sudden, he wants the body exhumed! The more I'm hearing about Virgie (bye the way!) the more I'm growing to dislike the woman. For Gods sake - let them both rest in peace, and be done with all these selfish, money-grabbing anticsl. It's pathetic!

She left Daddy Marshall in the Morgue for 5 months, then toured him around her mansion

like it was some freak show!!!! ha if that was my Father I would have been so LIVID!!!!

Sure seems all the grief she dished out in life is coming back ten~ fold!!!

AND SHES NOT EVEN AROUND TO ENJOY IT!!!

I could care less about Billy or Virgie!!! I would like justice be served up with a double life

AND GIVE BIRKHEAD HIS DAUGHTER!!!!!!!!! I THINK THAT WAS THE WORST THING SHE

EVER DID TO A PERSON!!!! THAT IS SO HATEFUL!!

What is wrong with these people! Billy Dearest didn't want anything to do with his son in life why would he be involved in his life in death. Billy also tesitfied in court (per phone) that ANS should be buried in the Bahamas with her son. Vergie needs to back off and let her daughter rest in peace. She severed all ties with ANS when she went on CNN and said either ANS or Howard killed Daniel. Leave ANS, Dannielynn, and Howard alone. Go back to Texas Vergie....alone!

Billy, I am so glad to hear you are going to bring Daniel home. He didn't like it in the Bahamas. Daniel was left in the funeral home for 39 days before being put to rest. Howard will be coming back to the US and Anna will be alone. What a shame HaHa

This jackass, sorry ass redneck "father" told the court that he had no intentions of digging up his son. He was not there for the boy in life. So, why do this??? Leave them alone. Hopefully, the Bahamas will not hear of this utterly stupid idea. These two people do not deserve to be laid to rest in Texas. They hated the place. Vultures!

Un f..ing believable. No wonder she fought so hard to get away from this damned family of hers. They are a disgrace. To tell the truth I never much care for Anna Nicole Smith but in the past few weeks of researching her life I have a new found respect. Rest in peace Anna Nicole Smith.

Good, get Daniel back in the U.S. of A. By the way ANS had at least 7 life insurance policies and Daniel was first and HKS was next to benefit. How this guy is going to go down!!!! Why is everyone still picking on Virgie.....she has to sit through that circus of a funeral tomorrow, will she be at the hole when they drop ANS in (one of the select 30) and she had a visit with her grand-daughter (who was sleeping or drugged into sleep) and was not allowed to touch her, just look at her....what the hell is that all about....Danny should go home, and Vicki Lynn should go home also...and put an end to this ANS circus.....

#13 makes a good point. We all saw how ANS kept Dannielynn from Birkhead. It is possible she did the same with Daniel.

OMG-it is mind-boggling what Virgie Arthur and that whole idiot family will do for money and/or notoriety, That guy can forget it. No judge in their right mind, especially after that phone call at the hearing, would lend any credence to ANYTHING this clown wants. The gig is up, Virgie. Obviously you are coercing this "biological father" to do this because clearly he is a nit-wit. And your tears at the house after seeing the baby for 15 minutes???? My guess is that you didn't have the opportunity to pull out a piece of her hair so that you could sell it to prove DNA. That's why you were "sobbing". Dollar signs going down the tube. No wonder she hated you!
