Inquest Into Daniel Smith's Death Begins

11/19/2007 6:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, and lawyer/wanna-be-baby-daddy Howard K. Stern were both in a Nassau, Bahamas courtroom this morning for the beginning of an inquest into the death of the the late celebuwreck's only son.

The proceedings were postponed in October, when a tropical storm slammed into the Caribbean island where Daniel Smith, 20, mysteriously died 13 months earlier in his mother's hospital room, three days after his sister Dannielynn was born.

Virgie told the court she was going to be part of Daniels estate. What did he leave a sock in Texas 12 years ago? This vile women is just after the money. I thought she said she didn't want any money, but here she is trying to get part of Dannielynn estate. This is the mother that after Daniel died made a mad dash to the camera to bash her daughter? 98% of the american people thought that was crude and low life. She has NO education or class. Even if you don't like Howard what she did was just trailor park low. If anything she should have kept her mouth shut in the sad time Anna had to handle Daniel's death. But, NO she wanted all the attention. Daniel wanted nothing to do with Virgie. He saw how she ran to any paper that would come her way to talk about Anna. Now we have splash mag. filming her at the grave site for money, going to the morgue, for money, going to the grave again, for money. Yep, she loved them...DEAD, money money money

Val, You idiot! That PI wasn't a real PI! He was a two-bit actor in O'Quinn's back pocket! You can look up his SAG card! His name is Jack Harding...and, oh, why isn't this paragon in the Bahamas? Because the Bahamaian Police have talked to him and even though his name was on earlier inquest lists, I suppose they found his version of the story "suspect" since it changes every time he tells it!

I hope they hang Vergie (or it that VEGGIE?). She's nothing but a money grubber and doesn't deserve one cent. She was abusive (at least mentally) to her daughter when she was alive and doesn't deserve anything now that she's passed! Power to Howard!!

The comments at the beginning of this topic says:" Anna Nicole Smith's mother, Virgie Arthur, and lawyer/wanna-be-baby-daddy Howard K. Stern were both in a Nassau, Bahamas courtroom this morning for the beginning of an inquest into the death of the the late celebuwreck's only son."

Why is HKS in the court room when he's going to be a witness? Is there anyone on this blog that's in Nassau, that can give us some real info?

Your gloating is at best
A cheap shot that needs to be put to rest

You are hurting a child that has just been born


You should put your words to good use.
Instead of lines filled with abuse
A tragic accident
A story written so bent
Antinoids are losing and so obtuse

I believe Virgie Aurthur, has every right to be at the Inquest for her Grandson Daniel Wayne Smith. Virgie is family. I only have respect compassion and empathy for Virgie. I wish her and her family only the best. It is my hope that the Inquest will be fair for all, and the truth will be revealed. It it my hope that the Inquest when it is concluded will give Virgie the answers to how her Grandson died, and she will get closure. I do not believe that Virgie is interested in money at all. It is closure and justice that she seeks. Money does not bring back your loved ones or help you to heal, but closure and justice does. Trust me I know. As always I will not speculate on the outcome of the Inquest, because I have no idea what the outcome will be. I am waiting for the courts to decide. IMO

HAPPY THANKSGIVING GRANDMA & DANIELYNN.......    

FOR THE MORONS who said that mom/grandma Vergie is after the money. Well, EINSTEINS what do you think sperm donor Larry and evil, satanic looking Stern are after? $$$$$$$$$$

I reather a million times see grandma Vergie controlling and making, keep Danielynn, Bring Daniel and Anna's remains to be buried in USA and live happily ever after.

UNEMPLOYED Stern should be in Jail and his buddy Larry right next to him, this loving couple destroyed Anna and Daniel and now will destroy DANIELYNN, already leeching on the baby and dead Anna.

For Vergie haters you must be a bunch of bastards who have no respect for a mom and Grandmother.

It makes no difference if Virgie lives in a house, a trailer, or a double wide, they CAN all be nice homes. At least she has somewhere to hang her hat and call home, that's more than Stern, OR Birkhead have. They both live off of or with someone else. IMO

HAPPY THANKSGIVING GRANDMA & DANIELYNN.......    

Pray God the truth will come out of the INQUEST.

There is no was Daniel flew all the way to Bahamas to meet his baby sister and then just to kill himself THE SAME DAY. No way Jose!

I still believe Howard contaminated Daniel's food with afatal drug, it killed Daniel quickly!
