Anna Nicole Smith, "devastated" and "in seclusion" in the wake of her 20-year-old son's sudden death, is supporting a formal inquest to determine exactly how Daniel Smith died during a visit to the Bahamian hospital where his mother had recently given birth to a baby girl. The jury inquest is slated to begin Oct. 23, at which time witnesses including Smith, hospital staffers and others who saw Daniel the night of his death will render their accounts of what they know or saw. Until then, Smith's lawyer tells the AP, "She wishes the public to not jump to conclusions and to wait for the [official findings]."
UPDATE: Smith's lawyer has been authorized to bring in a private pathologist to perform a second autopsy on her son, reports the AP.
