Have you been keeping track of the Daniel Smith inquest down in the Bahamas? In case you haven't, it is getting really interesting. Two days ago Larry Birkhead testified, and yesterday it was Howard K's turn. My conclusion is that someone is not telling the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
When Larry testified on Monday he said that he knew Daniel was stealing Anna Nicole Smith's methadone and that Anna was also his supplier for at least Ecstasy and maybe other drugs. Anna had discovered by using video cameras that Daniel and his friends were stealing her methadone. Daniel had also recently had a problem with sedatives. Larry did change his story this time and said that Anna wasn't the one who gave Daniel methadone. Hey, when you catch your kid taking your methadone and don't stop him from taking it again and again and again, it is thee same as giving it to him. That is just semantics to say she didn't.
Anyway, yesterday, Howard K did his best, "huh?" and "I don't remember" spiel. As far as Howard K was concerned, his impressions were that Daniel had never used drugs and still doesn't believe that Daniel ever took drugs, let alone overdosed on them. He did admit to taking photos of Daniel's dead body, but said they were just for Anna because she wanted to make sure her kid was really dead.
Howard K said he didn't really have any time to spend with Daniel because he was busy with Anna's legal work. OK, that is a big bunch of crap. Howard K was always with Anna and always around. He acts like he saw the kid once a month to just say hello. Uh huh.
It is possible that Howard K and Larry are kind of working this thing together. By having two conflicting versions of the story, then it is more likely that no one will be criminally charged in Daniel's death and that it will be ruled an accidental death. Then, Howard and Larry can get on with the next step of their plan. I honestly don't think we will ever know the entire story. Neither of these guys looks like the deathbed confession type, and definitely will not spill their story to an outsider. I do think though that one of the two will end up dead in very mysterious circumstances at some point.
