Call Him the Death Master
The judge handling the custody issue regarding Anna Nicole Smith'd body seems to be enjoying his time in the spotlight.
Broward County Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin seems to be on something of a power trip regarding his control over the (allegedly decaying) corpse of one Anna Nicole Smith. From today’s Miami Herald article by Nikki Waller and Roberto Santiago on the court battle over the body:
“Although Broward Medical Examiner Dr. Joshua Perper has urged release of the body so that it can be embalmed and be presentable for an open-casket viewing, Seidlin said he is in no hurry to do so.
‘’This body belongs to me now,'’ said Seidlin, who plans to hold as many hearings as it takes to determine who has the right to bury Smith. ‘For the moment, this body is staying right here.'
