Anna Nicole Smith’s son gets death certificate

Anna Nicole Smith’s lawyer announced yesterday that authorities issued a death certificate for her son Wednesday but left the cause of death as “pending chemical analysis.” The certificate lets Anna Nicole bury her son, although pathologists won’t receive the test results until two weeks.

“It is not unusual in instances where the cause of death cannot be determined to issue a death certificate,” Gomez told The Associated Press. “This is not a matter of special treatment being given in this particular case.”

I think it’d be ironic if the cause of death turned out to be a crocodile bite. Well, ironic or highly offensive. Maybe both. What am I, a psychic?
