Anna Nicole Smith... Son DEAD at 20.
Anna Nicole's son found dead
Officials say Anna Nicole Smith's son Daniel Wayne Smith, seen here with his mother in 2004, died in a Bahamas hospital where he'd gone to visit the reality TV star shortly after the birth of her daughter.
An autopsy is underway on the body of Anna Nicole Smith's 20-year-old son, Daniel, who was found dead Sunday in her room at Doctors Hospital in Nassau, police in the Bahamas said Monday.
Daniel arrived Saturday and went to the hospital where his mother had given birth days earlier, and he spent the night, Reginald Ferguson of the Royal Bahamian Police Force told the Associated Press. "The mother... saw him in the chair, and he appeared to be sound asleep," he said. "She tried to wake him up, he was unresponsive, and she sounded the alarm." He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Daniel arrived in Nassau Saturday "to share in the joy of his baby sister," says the former Playboy playmate's official website (www.annanicole.com). Anna Nicole gave birth to a 6-pound, 9-ounce girl on Thursday, the site says.
Anna Nicole, 38, "is absolutely devastated," the statement says. The post adds that neither alcohol nor drugs are believed to be a factor.
Her estranged father, Donald Hogan, learned of his grandson's death from TV's The Insider. "I wish I knew what was going on," he told Insider, adding that he met Daniel a handful of times. Daniel's father, Billy Smith, told TV's Extra he was in shock. He said he hadn't seen his son since 1988.
