Adding intrigue to tragedy, more details are emerging surrouding the mysterious and untimely death of Anna Nicole Smith’s 20-year old son, Daniel Smith. From ABC News:
Her Majesty’s Coroner Linda P. Virgill told The Associated Press that authorities believe they know what killed David Wayne Smith, but are awaiting a toxicology report to confirm the findings. “We do know the cause of death,” Virgill said. “But we need to confirm it with a toxicology report.” She declined to disclose details but said there was no sign of physical injury to Smith, who died while visiting his mother, a reality TV star and former Playboy playmate, in a hospital three days after she gave birth to a baby girl. Deepening the mystery, Virgill said there was at least one other person in the room when Smith died. She refused to elaborate. “I can confirm that there was definitely a third person in the room at the time of death and I do know who that person is,” she said. “But I am unwilling to reveal that information at this time for various reasons.”
More information is after the jump.

A formal inquiry may be launched, in which case officials will not publicly disclose their findings until after it is completed, Virgill said in an interview. Meanwhile, police were reconstructing Smith’s steps since his arrival Saturday in the Bahamas, said Reginald Ferguson, the assistant commissioner of the Royal Bahamian Police Force. Ferguson told the AP that no drug paraphernalia or traces of illegal drugs were found on Daniel Smith, in the hospital room or near the room. “We haven’t found any illegal drugs or anything of that nature in the course of this investigation,” he said. Police believe Smith went directly to Doctors Hospital in Nassau, where his mother was, after flying in to the Bahamas, Ferguson said.
It seems that the more information that comes out with this, the more confusing and mysterious his death becomes.
