Drug combo killed Anna Nicole's son

Filed under: Celeb Kids, Celeb Parents, Alcohol & Drugs

The inquest into the death of Daniel Smith has confirmed that the 20-year-old son of Anna Nicole Smith died from a lethal combination of prescription drugs. A Bahamian pathologist testified Monday that the autopsy of Daniel found more than eight different drugs in his system and that combination of three of them - Methadone, Zoloft and Lexapro - caused his death.

Bahamian police have said there is no evidence of homicide in Daniel's death, but it isn't clear if these drugs were all prescribed for him. Regardless, the findings paint a sad picture of a very unhappy boy. Howard K. Stern's attorney, Wayne Munroe, says, "Once you boil it all down, these were medicines treating either pain or depression." he said.

That Anna Nicole loved her son, I have no doubt. And I believe that Howard K. Stern loved both of them. But considering Stern was the only one of that group not addled by drugs, I can't help but wonder what he was doing while these two spiraled out of control.
