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.

Attention Ho    

4915. What Did We Learn About The Source Of Daniel's Methadone During His Inquest?

The Background on the blogs.

She and her buddy Clark have yet to be deposed. It will be a bombshell when they are.

How do you know they haven't been deposed?
Insider?

I appreciate you responding but I don't feel you explained your statement at all.....we all know and can read about the inquest ourselves.....but your statement caught my attention and I don't feel that you have backed up your claim to "know the source"....you simply have an opinion just like everyone else.

So, now you're a literary critic? ☺

Back on the 'Warrants' thread, about November 2007, pro-HKS posters put up links to the RBP investigation. I recall many anti-HKS posters then saying it was not dispositive of the Inquest; a statement of the obvious. The POLICE investigation was described back in October, 2006 as focusing on CA as the source of Daniel's methadone. Nothing changed by the time of Daniel's Inquest. No one besides G. Ben/FS disputed the Police investigation. Magistrate Campbell reiterated the RBP operative theory of Daniel's methadone source as CA. Jurors found "non-dependant drug use" as Daniel's cause of accidental death.

If Police testimony and a Jury's verdict isn't proof, then what could possibly be?

Your side claims to have had 'inside' sources at the Inquest. If true, then they heard all of this first hand. So why the constant questions about methadone as if the answer hasn't already been settled?

More than just my opinion. There are no other published facts that say otherwise.

You know Swims...you ain't going answer my question...I know it and YOU know it...there is no "source" that can help you out of the "Sh*thole" of drugs you helped dig for the love of your life. You will never separate yourself from the drugs...you're a pimp of a p*ssant who couldn't give Anna or Daniel a hand up from the "hell" they endured in the last moments of their lives...while YOU watched..and did absolutely NOTHING! You allowed DEATH to find them, snatch them...TWO friggin' death's on YOUR watch!

Oh...GAWD....Swims......whose "scourge of presecription drug" was it...WHERE is the prescirption and in whose name was THIS particular "scourge"? ....THIS was NO American tragedy of a beloved son...this happened in the Bahamas...Danny didn't "accidently overdose" in the US! Where is the PROOF that Daniel was a DRUG ABUSER let alone an inexperienced Methadone USER ..It's a GOOD question I've been told...Where was the Methadone, whose name was it in, that killed Daniel Wayne Smith?

6614. Shivering here, too, at what must have been going through
Howard's head as he lay there with one eye open, in that other hospital
bed, waiting for Anna to realize her son, lying beside her, was dead.
Was he feeling nervous excitement? Dread? Or was he calm, cool as a
cuc'umber, knowing the plan he hatched was carried out with the
methodical precision of a master architect?

I shiver also at the
thought that Howard revisited those same feelings only five months
later, when he offered a drugged out Anna that extra little bit of
Chloral Hydrate, knowing it would kill her in a matter of hours, and
awaited the discovery of her lifeless body.

But don't feel too
sorry for Howard. He did his job well. It's the only reason he hasn't
been thrown in jail yet. But he will be. He will pay for what he has
done, all for the sake of a HALF BILLION castle-in-the-sky dollars.

5674. There's a yellow rose in Texas, that I am going to see,
Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me.
She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalee,
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

When the Rio Grande is flowing, the starry skies are bright,
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night:
I know that she remembers, when we parted long ago,
I promise to return again, and not to leave her so.

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalee,
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

Oh now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we'll sing the songs together, that we sung so long ago
We'll play the bango gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the yellow rose of Texas shall be mine forevermore.

She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Clementine, and sing of Rosalee,
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me.

Nope. No melt down. We are tired of the bs. When logic is presented and refuted emotionally it is bs. You are sitting on a dead thread. Sternoids done killed it with their insane rants and their illogical arguments. Done growed past needing to explain rational thinking to the Sternies. Other venues to pursue.

Turn out the light for this room.

Sure I can handle the truth...I didn't melt down...I RANTED....BUT .... it is a NEW DAY, the RANT is history.... and Swims, OBVIOUSLY, is still discussing...BUT NOT with me. I guess Swims is just that way...Stern can do no wrong...the "other's", HA....can do no right...his BOY has the blood of TWO people he loved on his hands...how would YOU like to wake UP to that fact every morning .... for the REST OF YOUR LIFE? Stern can't even say....HE did ALL he could to save Anna and her "beloved" Daniel...
