Her Majesty's Coroner, Linda P. Virgill, announced on September 12 that “The cause of death is not natural. However, we wish to reserve the cause of death at this time pending the toxicologist examination and report for confirmation of cause of death. Friday is the likely release date for the autopsy and toxicology report” Virgill announced that an inquest would take place. “The inquest would happen late October or early November to determine how, when and by what manner Daniel came to his death.” “All persons who are relevant witnesses, like his mother and hospital staff and airline personnel who had contact with him, would have to testify” The following day, Bradley Neely, the chief inspector of the coroner's office, told the Associated Press that death seemed “suspicious... Whenever there is a suspicious death we would have an inquest to determine how the person died,” Coroner Linda Virgill held a September 13 news conference and said a coroner's inquest would begin October 23. She described the death as “suspicious” because it was sudden and because Daniel was only 20 years old and very young, clarifying earlier statements by saying that it was “unnatural” for a man of 20 to die suddenly. She cautioned that the scheduling of an inquest did not necessarily mean foul play was suspected. “Whenever we have sudden deaths, and we term them 'suspicious deaths,' it is usual to have this type of procedure,” The death would be considered suspicious until jurors determine otherwise according to Virgill. On September 14, an attorney, Michael Scott, read a prepared statement. “The devastation and grief over Daniel's sudden death coupled with the sedation has been so extreme that Anna Nicole experienced memory loss of the event,” “Anna Nicole was so distraught at the loss of Daniel that she refused to leave his side and it was necessary to sedate her in order to check her out of the hospital,” Scott said that the third person in the room at the time of the death was another one of Anna Nicole Smith's attorneys, Howard K. Stern. It “was necessary for Howard to tell Anna again that Daniel had passed away”. Mr. Scott was a partner in the law firm Callenders and Co. and would later reveal that he had been asked by the real estate developer G. Ben Thompson and an associate, who he said were friends of Ms. Smith, to act on her behalf after the sudden death of her 20-year-old son Daniel. Scott, Callenders and Co., and G. Ben Thompson were to figure prominently as Anna Nicole Smith's adversaries in the highly politicized Bahamian residency scandal surrounding her disputed home ownership. On September 20, 2006, authorities issued a death certificate for the son of Anna Nicole Smith but left the cause of death undetermined pending toxicology tests. In March 2008, Bahamas jury determined that Anna Nicole Smith's son died from an accidental drug overdose and recommended no criminal charges.
