Schindler Coroner Nixed From Terri Autopsy

Topics: 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.

HT: Pat Cambell, the Empire Journal has more.

It utterly amazes me how quickly they cremated Terri's body. It only leads me to believe that they did a slipshoddy job with the autopsy and then cremated her to cover up the evidence in case the government or whoever might decide to investigate.

Makes my blood boil....

Has anyone heard if the insurance company that gave MS the 1.7 million will be investigating him for fraud? It seems by his testimony during the trial for the money greatly changed 2 yrs later, never once before did he ever mention the way Terri wanted to be or not, so I was curious if that insurance company is watching and listening to all this?!

Yes, it is fairly quick with almost just one day of Cremation. Do you know how long the Cremation itself take? More like two days and do you know the process of Cremation? It is cruel process. They leave the Carcass in the incerinator for about 24 hours, then had to crush the bones to further it, then burn it again and put in acid, then do it all over again. I have seen the Process of Cremation. It is a long process, takes most of the Day to do it. I did not want to go into more details in respect for Terri. But the fact they did it fairly quick and impedied the process. Took only one day and half for the Autospy where most Autospy would take more than two to four days then Cremation takes at least most of the Day and half. Being Quick and doing it fairly fast is suspicious and they pre-planned the whole thing two weeks before her Death. Everything was all Planned.

Also, I read that Micheal is in hiding under Police Protection? Why can't he pay with his own Medical Trust to buy his own Body Guard? Does that mean it is from our OWN Tax Paying Dollars to pay for his Protection? Unfair. He has between $40,000 to $70,000 left over from Medical Trust and among other things, he can afford a Body Guard Protection himself. Why should we pay for his Protection with our Tax Paying Dollars where he can afford one himself? The police protects more on Criminals more than the Domestic Violence Victims and does not follow Restraining Orders up here at all. They ignore 911 Calls saying it is just a "STAGE" where the Wives and Children would get killed in their own Homes or out there killed by their Husbands.? Even the Pedophile Couey in Florida gets better treatment in Jail where our Lovely Sister Jessica died under cruel treatment. Unfair. Florida is doomed and full of Evil down there. Lots of stuff going on in Florida with a whole bunch of things. I cannot think it is really all that safe down there. I almost believed that is where the Devil lives after they moved out of Germany and make a home down in Florida. The Devil can move around and live just about anywhere, and I guess the target is Florida for now. When you think about it, they are done with Europe, Russia, Asia, Africa, etc...and the most innocent Land is America and that makes the America easy prey and fall into their whirlwind. The next fall of America happened as propheised in Revelations. I am sorry, but very very saddened that the Evil is all around us now. All we have to do is to battle them with Prayers and have Faith with God and Jesus Christ. The time is NOW. Keep the Strength going, we are in it for a long Haul.

Keep the Faith, Sisters and Brothers of the World.

Delphius: You are correct. There is about $1.2 million dollars in Medical Trust that was supposed to go to Terri for her Medical Care. But Micheal, Felos, Greer misused them over the years. $400,00 went to Felos, About $40,000 to $70,000 goes to Micheal, but who knows, it could be $700,000 in balance left over and his Assistant Lawyers gets about $20,000 each and the other Campagin Donations I don't know how much money but pretty sure went to Greer for his Re election. You are right, Micheal, Felos, Greer should be charged with Medical Fraud. I would not be surprised if they just let this one go as they are all "friends" of Pinealla County. I think it should be the Federal US Attorney from the Government that should charge them for Medical Trust Fraud, not Florida, because Terri WAS on Medicare or Medicaid for about 10 years and was never tapped into this Medical Trust except for the Food that was feeding her was paid also by Medical Trust, because that was by Florida Law that it must be paid. You can check those circumstances on empirejournal.com. You are right, they should pay attention to their misusing the money. They may get away from Crime by covering up but the Medical Trust is the only one they can't cover up.;)

I asked my husband about the insurance fraud question, and he said he thought the statute of limitation had already passed for this. Michael waited approximately 7 years after the malpractice suit before he actively began to find a legal way to kill Terri.

that was what i was afraid of, this is stinking more and more like a big pile of B.S. i just cannot believe this kind of pre-planned murder and fraud of the monies, the conflict of interest with all the parties involved! not even hollywood could come up with something this sick! i went to the empirejournal and read every article and right now i am just ticked off! i just cannot believe this is why we have the judicial system, i just am at a lose. i am so ashamed of what this country has done.

Now it makes sense. He waited 7 years before changing his MO. As soon as that statute of limitations ran out, he ran for an attorney that would make it legal for him to pull the plug on her. He convinced that judge that he had done all he could so he could get on with his life. Here in Florida we make it easy for a girl to give up her parental rights by taking a newborn baby to a police station, a fire station, a hospital, etc. so that baby can have a chance at being born rather than forcing the mother to look at abortion or worse things and with no legal repercussions but let this monster loose in a court of law in the same State and they put out the red carpet for him to accomplish his dirty deed. He had other options. Her family wanted him to divorce her. To give her back to the family so they could care for her. I hope and pray he never has to watch either one of his own children end up in this predicament. I do not believe for one second that he had that woman's best interest at heart. The pope wasn't far behind Terri in death. Let's all take solice in knowing he's right there with her. I think what they did to her broke his heart.
