Terri Schiavo Possibly Abused, Florida Agency Wants 60 Days to Investigate

Topics: News

A Florida agency wants 60 days to conduct an investigation into new allegations that Terri Schiavo was abused or mistreated.

The Florida Department of Children & Families does not name a person responsible for the abuses, though Terri's estranged husband Michael has been accused of abusing her before her collapse 15 years ago.

The agency filed an 11 page document with Circuit Court Judge George Greer detailing why it wants to intervene in the case and shared the confidential document with attorneys for both Michael and Terri's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler.

Judge Greer is expected to rule tomorrow on whether to extend the stay preventing Michael from starving Terri to death while Terri's parents pursue appeals in legal motions intended to stop the starvation.

Greer could also rule tomorrow on the agency's request for a two month delay.

(...) George Felos, the euthanasia advocate who is Michael's lead attorney, says the investigation is another attempt by Florida Governor Jeb Bush to get involved in the case when Florida courts have told him he can't.
(...) In 2003, Pinellas State Attorney Bernie McCabe looked into the matter but said the statute of limitations had run out on investigating the bone scan and that it was too old to be used.
(...) "They have no doubt that once a legitimate review is done, the things they have been saying all along will be found to be true," Davis said.

(...) In a statement on their web site, the Schindlers say they welcome the involvement of the DCF "in their investigation into serious and detailed allegations of abuse and to ensure that appropriate care and treatment of Terri and patients like her is being delivered."

Who says God doesn't answer prayer? :)

I hope that this is granted so Monster Michael can be "cleared" or cooked (with the latter being a greater possibility in my mind) and that Terri's parents would see justice once and for all. Selah!

I've linked to a report which says Greer won't consider the Child and Family Services petition until next week as he ruled it was improperly filed with the court. Not sure what this means - will the stay be extended until he has considered the petition? I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow.
