Smith's Son May Get 2nd Autopsy
Sep. 15, 2006
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) _ The head coroner in the Bahamas said Friday she has authorized Anna Nicole Smith's family to bring in their own pathologist to perform a second autopsy on her son Daniel Smith.
Head coroner Linda Virgill said the family's pathologist would arrive from the United States on Saturday and will perform the autopsy on Sunday.
``It is nothing unusual for families to want their own pathologist to confirm or look for something that may have been overlooked'' in the autopsy by the coroner's office, Virgill told reporters.
The results of the official autopsy, which was done on Tuesday, have not been released. Virgill said a toxicology exam would be completed next week.
