More Drugs Found In Daniel Smith's System
Anna Nicole's son had taken another antidepressant and other medications before his death
Anna Nicole Smith’s son Daniel had up to seven drugs in his system when he died on Sept. 10, toxicology reports indicate.
Dr. Cyril Wecht, a private pathologist hired by the Smith family, confirms to PEOPLE that the antidepressant Amitriptyline, as well as two over-the-counter cold medicines, were found in Daniel’s body along with methadone and the antidepressants Lexapro and Zoloft. Sources also tell PEOPLE that a mild over-the-counter sedative was found in the 20-year-old’s system.
However, Wecht said the other medications played no role in Daniel’s death, and reiterated his assertion that Daniel was killed by the combination of Lexapro, Zoloft and methadone. Of the other medications, he said, “The levels are insignificant and they don’t mean a thing. They’re of no consequence.”
Meanwhile, Anna Nicole Smith’s Bahamian attorney, Wayne R. Munroe, tells PEOPLE Smith has sued South Carolina developer G. Ben Thompson in Bahamas Supreme Court over ownership of her Nassau residence.
“He is going around claiming that the house is his. So we have sued him in the Bahamas Supreme Court for declaration that he is wrong,” says Munroe, who alleges that Smith has a signed and sealed deed giving the house to her.
Thompson tells PEOPLE about this legal challenge, “I won’t take it lightly. I’m certainly not going to roll over.”
At issue is the nearly $1 million home where Smith, her newborn daughter Dannielynn Hope and Smith’s partner Howard K. Stern have been living.
Thompson says he offered Smith financial help to buy the house. Smith was then supposed to sign a mortgage to buy the home from him, and a deed in her name would be filed in court. Instead, he says, she refused, so he had a new deed drawn up in his name.
Last week, a letter was delivered to the house telling Smith she would have to move out by Oct. 31. Thompson said that if she failed to leave, he would begin formal eviction proceedings. However, Munroe claims that Smith purchased the home for $900,000 from two men, neither of whom is Thompson.
According to Thompson’s attorney, Michael Scott, there has been no registration of the deed for the property.
