Daniel's Death Officially Ruled Accidental

3/31/2008 1:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A jury in the Bahamas investigating the death of Anna Nicole Smith's son Daniel has ruled it was caused by an accidental drug overdose, recommending no criminal charges be filed.


This verdict is huge because of what the jury didn't say -- that Howard K was responsible for the death.

The jury unanimously concluded Daniel died from "non-dependent drug use" -- meaning he wasn't addicted to what killed him.

Where did the Methadone that killed Daniel come from? ... Where's the TRANSPARENCY from Howard K Stern?

Ah..oh..what's your problem there, buddy? Could you rephrase your comment? ....OR just answer a question...where did the methadone come from that killed Daniel? You have one death on your hand's with the "lethal" drug, that killed Anna, in your name...so no VA team needed there...BUT I would bet there is ONE Texas Grandma....most curious where her grandson "got" the methadone that killed him...

4895. I don't see why Bonnie would think HKS needed background help. HKS and LB were already talking, in late February, 2007. They were in face-to-face substantive meetings, without the nasty Opri around, and it was being widely reported and discussed in the global media at the time. The two men were working on their own to provide the best outcome for DL. No media-whoring was happening and no interviews were being done by either principal. JMO

The trouble with this post is, at those very times the 2 "boys" portrayed to the public they were in a fight of all fights and hated each other.

Posted at 4:42PM on May 13th 2008 by BS
*****
The '2 boys' weren't portraying anything to the public at that time, is my point. The peripheral hangers-on of the ANS saga were busy collecting their '15 minutes' on TV and in print and the over-heated media was handing out cash like candy to score the ratings of their lifetimes talking to people who couldn't possibly know what they were talking about.

We recall back then:

• Opri was crying on TV that the evil HKS was cutting her out (true, and so righteously deserved).
• O'Q was spinning his 'rhetorical hyperbole' about HKS the murderer with the life insurance policies (later retracted only after he was sued) to "level the playing field" for his client VA.
• VA (who had early after Daniel died tried to sell her herself to the media and that fact was never revealed until VA included the media titan CBS in her lawsuit against HKS) was claimed to be getting a raw shake in the media (reasonable after her Seidlin Court performance) by O'Q and his increasingly rabid bloggers.
• Entertainment and 'pop law' shows were featuring panels of people speculating that HKS and LB must be talking about some sort of deal regarding custody and property matters since they were unavailable to the media for comment.

Well, as it turns out, HKS and LB, two real people with a real baby that they both loved, were not going to allow themselves to fall victims to the sick and twisted media-whoring maelstrom of the day to the detriment of themselves and DL. As never in recent American history, two men set aside their substantial personal animosity for the sake of a little girl.

This is when VA became irrelevant to this story IMO. She and O'Q could not restrain themselves in the media and conduct themselves in a sane and decent fashion. Nasty Opri was canned and didn't go quietly. HKS and LB formed a protective wall around DL which has stood inviolate to this day. Both conducted themselves quietly thereafter and marched straight through various Courts and proceedings to provide DL with her birthright.

O'Q/Clark/Wilma/VA bloggers blew fuses and unleashed a steady stream of lurid and preposterous stories on the internet that eventually became Cosby's libelous book. Dirt collected ostensibly for HKS by certain people who in depositions use the word 'assume' constantly, was suddenly unleashed against both HKS and LB.

I was never aware of various other blogs and personalities at the time until their spat was suddenly being posted all over TMZ, but I said then and say now, the true public records they were claiming to have gathered to 'smear' VA and LB were neither necessary at the time nor ever used by HKS. Whatever McCabe claims certain bloggers were doing and for whatever purpose they were doing it, never happened.
