Lawyer: Anna Nicole Smith obsessed with death, had burial dress

UPI News Service, 02/16/2007 

The late Anna Nicole Smith was obsessed with death and already had a dress selected for her burial, a lawyer told a Broward County, Fla., judge.

During the hearing on the disposition of Smith's body, lawyers for her companion Howard K. Stern said Smith wanted to be buried with her 20-year-old son, Daniel, who died of a drug overdose Sept. 10, the New York Daily News said Friday.

Judge Larry Seidlin is presiding over matters regarding who will receive Smith's body and preserving DNA samples that would be used in paternity tests for Smith's 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn.

Her son's death apparently triggered Smith's thoughts of her own demise, Stern's attorneys told the court. Attorney Ron Rale said Stern related that Smith had been working with a seamstress on a dress for her own funeral.

"There's a dress Anna Nicole had, the dressmaker had been preparing a dress," Rale said.

Smith's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, also is seeking custody of Smith's body to bury her in her home state of Texas.

Larry Birkhead, who also claims to be the father of Smith's daughter, wants DNA from the body preserved for his paternity suit.
