 Sources that Daniel suffered a “massive heart attack” and that his mother made an unsuccessful attempt to revive him. Police officials immediately put the hospital on a security lock-down and remained tight-lipped about the incident, pending an investigation. But authorities said there was no evidence of foul play and homicide has been ruled out as a cause
Reginald Ferguson, assistant commissioner of the Royal Bahamas Police Force, said that Daniel was visiting his mother and new baby sitter at Doctors’ Hospital when he was found dead in her room at about 9 a.m. Sunday.

  “He was found in a condition of non-responsiveness,” Ferguson said. “I am not certain who made the alarm, and doctors were called in, but he was pronounced dead.”

  Smith, who as a child bore witness to his mother’s bizarre antics on her E! reality TV program “The Anna Nicole Show,” was in the Caribbean nation for the birth of the baby.

  “We have yet to learn the cause of death but do not believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor,” Smith’s lawyer Howard K. Stern, said in a statement posted on annanicole.com. “Anna Nicole is absolutely devastated by the loss of her son. He was her pride and joy and an amazing human being. Please do not make any press inquiries at this time so that Anna Nicole can grieve in peace.”

  Daniel Smith was the product of Smith’s 1985 marriage to Billy Smith, a fellow worker at Jim’s Krispy Fried Chicken in Mexia, Texas. They divorced in 1987

  She married wheelchair-bound oil tycoon J. Marshall Howard, 89, after meeting him at a strip club in 1994 and has been fighting over his fortune with his other heirs since his death 14 months after their marriage.

Anna Nicole Smith, 38, gave birth to a healthy 6-pound, 9-ounce girl at the hospital Thursday. Smith, born Vicki Lynn Hogan, has not revealed the name of the child’s father.
