Chicks Decide How Daniel Died

3/29/2007 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DanielA jury of seven -- all women -- has been impaneled to determine how Daniel Smith died.

The coroner's inquest into the death of Anna Nicole Smith's son is finally starting to roll. The jury will be asked to determine if Daniel died accidentally, or whether it was a homicide or suicide. If the verdict is homicide, it will serve as a recommendation to the Attorney General in the Bahamas. The A.G. will then decide whether to charge someone with a crime.

Among the 40 witnesses who will testify -- staff at the hospital where Daniel died, Larry Birkhead and the star witness, Howard K. Stern.

Stern is trying halt the proceedings because he thinks the process is flawed. If Stern's bid is rejected, testimony could begin shortly.

Howard and his laywers ALWAYS think something is flawed and its never being done right according to them....I hope the jury finds him guilty...why would ben g thompson and his son in law say that they saw Howard take pills that fell out of Daniels pocket and flush them away then say "I just had to take care of a problem". I hope he gets what he derves soon.

Why should HKS give a crap that the process is flawed? Shouldn't he be more concerned that the questions concerning his beloved's sons death will be answered? Maybe he's too concerned they will find out who gave him the methadone? Especially now that the fridge in Anna's hotel room showed the 'family sized' bottle.

Chicks? How about Broads? Or Old Ladies? Or Gals? Or Tart? (or if they are young enough, Pop Tart) Or ... well, the use of words for anatomical body parts for females. DISGUSTING!

Stern thinks the process is flawed ?????
Oh come on.... Did his attorney's not say that all of this ANS stuff should be held/heard in the Bahamas and that they would cooperate?Now, they want to challenge it?
Ridiculous gamemanship!

Finally....now lets get on with it.

This is not about ANS, this is not about HK$ (though it may be in the end!)
This is about DANIEL.... a young man who died way to soon
Lets turn our focus to him, to honor him, and to see justice prevail

Justice for Daniel !!!

I KNOW A WAY TO GET HOWARD OUT OF THE HOUSE.

Have the inquest jurors find that Daniel's death was a homicide. HKS will be out of the Bahamas before the next wave lands ashore, leaving even little Dannilynn behind.
