Schiavo Autopsy

By  | 

An autopsy of the brain-damaged woman who died in March is still two or three weeks from being completed.

The medical examiner for Pinellas and Pasco counties says the high-profile case has taken over his office and consumes his working hours.

Jon Thogmartin has received hundreds of letters and e-mails about Terri Schiavo. She died March 31 after her artificial feedings were stopped by court order.

Now at the center of a controversy that raged worldwide, Thogmartin says he feels the pressure but is not influenced by it.

Terri Schiavo died 13 days after her feeding tube was removed at a Pinellas Park hospice.

She collapsed in 1990 from a chemical imbalance believed to be brought on by an eating disorder.
