Anna Nicole Smith's mother seeks Texas reburial of grandson Daniel
UPI News Service, 03/05/2007
A Bahamian court considered a request to exhume the body of Daniel Smith, son of the late Anna Nicole Smith, for reburial in Texas, where Smith was born.
The request was filed by Smith's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, who reportedly has a letter from the son's father authorizing her to ask the Bahamian courts to order the body be exhumed and buried in Texas, the Bahama Journal said Monday.
Arthur tried unsuccessfully to gain custody of Smith's body in a Florida court, then tried to block the funeral in a Bahamian court.
She said she wants to bury Smith's body in Texas and has said she wanted to move the body of Smith's son, who died in September, to Texas as well.
She filed the exhumation request Friday, the day Smith was buried.
Smith died Feb. 8 of unknown causes in a Florida hospital where she was taken after being found unresponsive in her hotel room.
