Autopsy scheduled for Anna Nicole Smith

An autopsy will be conducted on Friday to help determine the cause of Anna Nicole Smith's death, according to the Broward County Medical Examiner's Office. Smith died Thursday at a South Florida hospital after being discovered unconscious in her hotel room. The reality TV star, Playboy Playmate and former Guess model was 39. Her death came less than five months after the birth of her daughter and the death of her 20-year-old son. One of two men involved in a paternity dispute over Smith's daughter is seeking a DNA sample, and a hearing is set for Friday morning.

Smith checked into the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, on Monday with her lawyer and boyfriend, Howard K. Stern. Smith's private nurse called hotel workers at 1:38 p.m. and security officials went to the room, Seminole Police Chief Charlie Tiger said. Before rescue workers arrived, Smith's bodyguard performed CPR on her, Tiger said. She was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, where she was pronounced dead at 2:49 p.m.

Late Thursday, police told CNN the hotel room where Smith was found had been cleared. Police carried bags of evidence out of the building. Smith's attorney, Ron Rale, told reporters Smith had been suffering from flu-like symptoms for the last couple of days. "We are saddened and heartbroken by my sister's death. No matter what our differences have been over the years, Anna was still our blood and she will be missed terribly," Smith's sister, Donna Hogan, said in a statement Thursday. "She was a woman who was determined to get out of her small town in Texas and make a name for herself."

Hogan went on to say that the death of Smith's son last year "left her deeply saddened, a sadness she hid from everyone." Dannielynn Hope "is now without a mother," Hogan wrote. Last September, Smith gave birth to Dannielynn Hope in the Bahamas. Her son, Daniel, was found dead in his mother's hospital room days later.
