No Homicide in Death of Anna Nicole's Son

3/20/2008 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Big news in the Daniel Smith inquest -- the magistrate in the case will not be giving the jury the option to rule his death a homicide.

In a Bahamian court today, the parties discussed four possible options as the cause of death -- accident, "misadventure," non-dependent drug use and an "open verdict."

We're told the magistrate will instruct the jury on those options on March 31.

No one, including Virgie Arthur's lawyer, suggested that homicide was an option.

As for the options, "misadventure" is defined as "a hazardous course of action which ended fatally." An open verdict means the jury can't decide the specific cause of death.

Let it Be    

Has Daniel's former girlfriend been interviewed? - She, quite possibly, could lend a great deal of insight into the matter.

ANS was one big gross dumb slut whore. During her autopsy the coroner noted several large abcesses on her huge ass that were very deep and filled with puss. EEWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STAY AWAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is this a mushroom trip?    

TMZ you are so stupid! The jury didn't rule no homicide, like you try to make it look. The jury can still say open virdict, which might mean murder! TMZ I hope Virgie and her lawyer's make you pay a big bundle of money for your lies!

right now, at this very moment, ANS is nothing but a big huge greasy slimy smelly stinking pile of rotting goo, with two huge bags of silicone floating around inside the putrid mess

It seems as though Daniel suffered from a "broken spirit" being Anna Nicole's son and turned to drugs to numb the pain. If you never deal with the pain it will either make you very sick or kill you!

RIP Daniel

Cool    

THANK YOU BAHAMAS for seeking the truth in the twisted tragic death. I hope we all have learned the lessons of abusing prescription drugs and the toll celebrity life in the media takes on celebrities and their children.

We are ALL HUMAN

Rest in Peace Anna Nicole and Daniel.
