In the late 90s and early 2000s, Anna Nicole Smith was a total vibe. She was a Guess model and was unapologetically married to an 89-year-old billionaire. But things eventually started to unravel for Anna Nicole—her husband died, sparking a drawn-out court battle over his estate, and she started behaving erratically in public.
While the new doc answers a lot of burning questions about the model, it also presents a lot of new inquiries about Anna Nicole’s life, and namely, how she died and where she’s buried. Here’s what you need to know:
What was Anna Nicole Smith’s cause of death?
Anna Nicole was found unconscious on Feb. 8, 2007, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, according to The New York Times. She was pronounced dead that afternoon.
Anna Nicole died from an accidental prescription drug overdose, per the Times. The coroner’s report also found that she had a bacterial infection and the flu when she died.
The medical examiner found traces of several drugs in her body, including muscle relaxers, methadone, and several anti-anxiety medications. The coroner ruled out suicide as a potential cause, per the Times, noting that Anna Nicole was in good spirits before her death.
Her son also died of an overdose.
Anna Nicole’s son Daniel had died from a drug overdose the year before his mom and just days after she gave birth to her daughter, Dannielynn, the Times says.
Where is she buried?
Anna Nicole was buried at the Lakeview Memorial Gardens & Mausoleum in the Bahamas, alongside her 20-year-old son, Daniel, according to The Guardian. Anna Nicole’s late husband, oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall, also has his ashes buried in her casket.
How old was she when she died?
Anna Nicole was 39 years old when she died, the Times says.
What happened after she died?
Anna Nicole had been involved in a paternity lawsuit with her ex boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, over her daughter Dannielynn. Anna Nicole said that Howard K. Stern was Dannielynn’s father; Birkhead said he was the father.
A DNA test later confirmed that Birkhead was Dannielynn’s father. “I’m the father. Thank you for your support,” he told reporters at the time, per People. “Thank you for the people who got me this far. Thank you very much. My baby’s gonna becoming home pretty soon. Things are moving quickly here, and we’ll see what happens.”
Dannielynn, who is a teenager, and her father are now regulars at the Kentucky Derby. They did not participate in the documentary.
