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.

Is there going to be any investigation from the Bahamas with regard to the illegal use, possession and transportation of Methadone? Is there going to be any investigation into how, where, when and who gave Daniel the illegal transported Methadone which ultimately caused his death? Obviously not in the incompetent, corrupt Bahamas, with any luck the United States will get answers to these questions, along with answers to the questions with regard to ANS death.

It's been stated in the beginning and it still rings true, follow the money trail. This inquest was delayed for over a year, the Bahamas may be corrupt but they aren't stupid. IMO it's time to look into all money transactions that were done throughout this year and they shouldn't be limited to Howard either. Perhaps it took this long for the "Bills to be paid".

Strange how Daniel died the minute he left American soil & strange how Anna died on an indian reservation. Howard K. Stern knew how to cross his "eyes" & chart his "trails". I bet he is gloating thinking how he pulled off another "good one".

I am speculating here. Howie sees the Bahamas as his safe haven from extradition to the USA. Think Ray and Dr. E and Bonnie will move down there, too?

Hi Pass... I have no doubt HKS spent many a night researching the laws of the Bahamas as they pertain to crimes, paternity and real estate issues....
I don't think Ray & Dr. E. will move there. What country is Dr. E. originally from? Anyone know? I'd be willing to bet she'd flee there first.

MITCHY MITCH    

I cannot see how they can say it was an accidental overdose !!

So they assume he accidentally took a bunch of pills?

He either took them on purpose (suicide) or he unwillingly consumed
it (homicide).

The two things the judge told the jury to disregard.

Also, why would he ask HKS "why am i so tired" if he knowingly took
that many drugs?

Total BS if you ask me !!!

Two pills instead of one would be an accident. Three pills instead of two could be an accident.

"WHY AM I SO TIRED?" is NOT an accident.

Travesty of justice.

1797. love it, if she has the Stern camp pay her expenses than that is considered INCOME that she has to report to SSI. If she thinks for one second people have not already contacted SS she is nutter than I thought.

Well , well.............now that the Inquest is over we re moving on over to Team Texas' next maneuver............
Continue to libel and or associated payment with Team Stern.
In Your nightmares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I certainly hope that you have some facts to back up your accusations....and duly noted sent to lawyers.
TMZ needs to pull your posts:)

Linn Wood is only representing Stern in these battles... you must be fishing for info on what or who the falsely accused have to reprsent them? Sad.

When all is said and done I do know that this people who you freely throw your "terminal hate" at, have enough to contersue for damages and I encourage them to do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As far as SSI and disabilities I wish the whole conglomerate of pain and disease on all of you at one time, of the people you have so rabidly stalked , attacked and demeaned. So much that you cry out yet find no relief or mercy. May that be so.

Okay ,waiting for a link to back up your libel.... oops? Don't have one? thought so!!!

Hi Dink. I heard Anna's statement was was admitted at the inquest but it didn't say much of anything. Figures. She was probably all drugged up.

Larry, really for the baby's sake please get away from these people, go to Kentucky and let her live a normal life. Enroll her in preschool and let her be with other kids. Give up the celebrity image and be a daddy!

this is funny after all the gay bashing they did on larry birkhead now they are telling him what to do to.
