Schiavo Autopsy Results

By  | 

Terri Schiavo's autopsy results are scheduled to be made public Wednesday.

Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner Jon Thogmartin will release the autopsy results at an 11 a.m. news conference.

The chief investigator for the medical examiner's office says Thogmartin also reviewed police reports, medical records and other documents to try to determine the cause of her brain damage.

Most doctors said Schiavo was in a persistent vegetative state. She died March 31, nearly two weeks after the feeding tube keeping her alive was removed by a court order sought by her husband.

Her parents' efforts to keep her alive reached the halls of Congress and made news around the world.

The autopsy is expected to answer lingering questions about the Schiavo's health. Her parents alleged that her husband abused her.

They also insisted that she was minimally conscious.
