LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 20, 2006 -- In an EXCLUSIVE interview, Anna Nicole Smith's lawyer and confidante, Howard K. Stern, speaks openly and honestly about the untimely death of her 20-year-old son Daniel.

Stern tells E! NEWS that Anna just got the first of three toxicology reports and it came back negative for any illegal substances. He continues to say that they found, as expected, Lexapro and Ambien in his system, but not at levels that could have caused Daniel's death.

Stern went on to say this first report was based on blood drawn at the hospital at the time of Daniel's death. The two remaining toxicology reports yet to be released were based on two separate autopsies performed by Bahamian officials and Anna's private pathologist Cyril Wecht. Daniel's body was released to Anna today and a death certificate was issued.
