Anna Nicole Smith Autopsy Results Due Today
The former Playboy Playmate died on Feb. 8 in Hollywood, Fla. According to the Associated Press, additional evidence from the Seminole Police Department, which is investigating Smith's death, delayed the autopsy's release.
Broward County medical examiner Dr. Joshua Perper had declined to make the autopsy results public until he reviewed the evidence.
The day after Smith's death, police said they had found no evidence that a crime had been committed, and Perper said he'd found no serious injuries in his initial examination.
Perper said at a Feb. 9 press conference that Smith's death could have been due "solely to natural causes ... some medical and chemicals ... or a combination of natural causes and medication."
The much-anticipated disclosure of exactly how the 39-year-old Smith died comes more than three weeks after she was finally buried in the Bahamas.
Meanwhile, an inquest into the death of her son, Daniel, in September at age 20 is due to begin today in the Bahamas.
