An American medical examiner hired by the family, Cyril Wecht, said Daniel had methadone and two antidepressants in his system when he died. Low levels of the three drugs interacted to cause an accidental death, Wecht said.
Last month, Bahamian officials agreed to conduct a formal inquest into the death of Daniel Smith. The inquest was scheduled for March 27.
More than 20 witnesses will be called to testify, including one who allegedly insists that Stern gave Daniel methadone before he died. Stern was in the room at the time of Daniel Smith's death.
The same witness also will tell officials that after Daniel's death, Stern flushed the remaining methadone down the toilet, TMZ reported. Stern has denied this report.
Smith was also going to be among the witnesses required to testify before the jury inquest, Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez said.
Smith and Stern exchanged vows in a non-marriage "commitment ceremony" 18 days after Daniel died on Sept. 10.

Are you talking about the son of her ex-husband's? Here's a snip from a news article, 6/24/2006 "E. Pierce Marshall died unexpectedly earlier this week in the Dallas area from a brief and extremely aggressive infection, the family said in a written statement released through spokesman David Margulies". Maybe Howard K. had a layover in Dallas the day before?
