Schindler Coroner Nixed From Terri AutopsyTopics: General
Dr. Cyril H. Wecht, the well-known forensic pathologist and coroner of Allegheny County, Pa., told listeners of a morning radio show that he was denied permission to observe Terri Schiavo's autopsy, despite the wishes of her parents ... more
According to the article, "[Wecht] said that, if this were in [his] office, [he] would have said sure - not just because of professional courtesy, but because of the controversy surrounding this case,"
Why not bring in an outside and indepedent observer, especially one that is as well-known and respected as Wecht? Remember, Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, announced that his client had "ordered" the autopsy because it is "important to have the public know the full extent of the damage to Mrs Schiavo's brain." Well, Felos misrepresented the truth about the autopsy [click here and here] and, without an independent investigation, it now seems unlikely that the truth will come out. An independent investigation ... there's an idea.
