The 20-year-old movie producer was found slumped in a chair in his mother's Bahamian hospital room just three days after the birth of his half-sister. Initial autopsy reports have failed to find a cause of death.
But, after forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht declared yesterday that Daniel was taking prescription anti-depression medication when he died, the youngster's movie partner has revealed he had been very ill.
He says, "He was in the hospital for two or three days. He was really sick. He lost something like 28 pounds and had a constant stomach ache."
According to Giancola, Daniel seemed to have recovered but was still not fully fit when he flew to the Bahamas to be with his mother after she gave birth on Sept. 7.
It has been suggested that Smith had been prescribed anti-depression medication after splitting up with his girlfriend.
