A Bahamian judge has expected hope that the highly anticipated Daniel Smith inquest, which was stalled following a motion filed by the estate of Anna Nicole smith, will resume shortly.
Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez told AP that the inquest will resume shortly after he rules on the motion in a closed session on Thursday.
The motion which was presented by Wayne Munroe, a lawyer for Anna Nicole Smith’s estate, related to the impaneling of a jury to act on this inquiry. The motion was not disclosed to the public as the Bahamian law prohibits anyone involved in closed legal proceedings to discuss them.
Nicole’s 20-year-old son Daniel Smith died on Sept. 10 due to a lethal combination of drugs, including methadone and antidepressants , while visiting his mother three days after she gave birth to her daughter, Dannielynn, in Nassau, the Bahamian capital.
The inquest is to determine the official cause of his death- whether it was an accident, suicide or perhaps even a homicide.
Now that the motion is expected to be resolved, we can look forward to an early result for the inquest too.
