Daniel's Death Ruled 'Accidental'
The mystery of how Anna Nicole Smith's son died has been resolved. A Bahamas jury decided today that Daniel died of an accidental drug overdose -- and no crime was committed. No criminal charges will be filed.
Daniel, 20, died September 10, 2006 in Anna's hospital room, just three days after the birth of his half-sister, Danielynn. In December, a forensic pathologist announced that Daniel died of a lethal cocktail of methadone, Zoloft and Lexapro.
Anna Nicole Smith died five months later in Florida. Her death was also ruled an accidental overdose, involving methadone, Valium, and sleeping pills.
