Evidence of Physical Abuse Haunts Michael Schiavo
Fractures in wifes ribs, pelvis, spine and ankle point to prolonged violent abuse
To: National Desk
Contact: Gary McCullough for the Schindler Family, 202-546-0054
CLEARWATER, Fl., Feb.10 /Christian Wire Service/ -- On May 6, 1990, two months after the mysterious incident that left Terri Schindler Schiavo severely mentally disabled, Dr. Hamilton, an Orthopedic Surgeon, examined her. A year later Terri was demonstrating painful reactions to physical therapy treatment, so on March 5, 1991, the Mediplex therapist director ordered a bone scan.
This bone scan revealed a healed broken right femur bone and healed bone fractures in Terri Schindler Schiavos ribs, pelvis, spine and ankle.
Dr. W. Campbell Walker concluded that Terri has a history of trauma and presumed that the other multiple areas of abnormal activity also relate to previous trauma.
As Terris lone guardian, Michael Schiavo has been able to conceal the bone scan and examinations from her parents, brother, and sister for over ten years. To date, Michael Schiavo has not allowed the family to see the results of the May 6 examination, the emergency room records from the day of the incident, nor any of the accompanying x-rays.
Michael Schiavo's inability to be forthright over the bone scan brings into question his lone description of Terri's activity at the time of the incident. His choice to have his wife terminated rather than rehabilitated may not be in pursuit of her interests, but to continue to conceal the level of physical violence he displayed toward Terri.
The bone scan evaluation is available online at www.earnedmedia.org/bonescan.htm
Thanks for the link. That will help others become familiar with the story. What I notice in particular, is that when the person is able to be revived, the initial investigation gets sloppy because the person didn't die. So many valuable clues like body position and all sorts of things get a quick lookover instead of a thorough exam.
In Michael and Terri's case, the police asked him if they had been having any fights or marital difficulties lately, to which Michael responded no. In fact, Michael's own brother admits in newspaper reports that Michael and Terri did have a HUGE argument that very day which corroborates what Terri's coworker, Jackie Rhodes, said in court testimony.
Thanks, Ohioan from Florida!
Goodnight Terri bump with a prayer!
Terri has been misrepresented in the press AND in court as being comatose and unresponsive. . . why? Why such carelessness in reporting her true condition, ie that she is indeed responsive to her environment, and therefore is not in PVS?
In fact, her medical records in '90/'91 prior to the malpractice suits (when she was receiving appropriate therapy, which has since been discontinued) note that Terri DID respond, including saying "Stop" and making faces in response to therapy.

Thank you for your great post, FL_engineer at 55.
It was in the mid-rhirties but the cold day didn't stop Terri's supporters from DEMANDING A GRAND JURY in January, 2004. (actual date I can probably get with some digging - I think I did a freep report).
Judge Baird was transferred from 315 Court St. (Greer's Complex) but EVEN THOUGH BAIRD WAS TRANSFERRED TO CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMPLEX AND HE HOLDS HEARINGS FOR CRIMINALS, he was permitted to keep Michael Schiavo v. Jeb Bush (may be legal but ethical?)
Excellent post; excellent work, FL. Great pics seeing Terri awake and alert and reponsive....up until HINO got the money, that is.
Thanks, FLe -- that post is always appreciated. I was unable to find right off the transcript we'd done of the PDF of the Mediplex and other records which documents Terri's reactions to PT and clear awareness of her environment.
May what has been hidden finally come to light, please God.
Can someone tell me in a nutshell why police haven't investigated this case thoroughly enough?
For starters, Terri survived her initial collapse. It got removed from homicide because she pulled through. Secondly, Michael's future MIL worked for Sheriff Rice's office before she passed away last September (2004).
Thirdly, and most horrible, is that there actually WAS an investigation by the DCF, but the contents of its findings were sealed by the court (Greer), because it had been quashed by someone at the DCF. Mitch Turner was one of the investigators. I have no idea how to get that file opened, but I can tell you, this is just one horrible thing after another. It's a little hard to understand why so many are so desperate to suppress the truth about Terri's true status.
The truth here is as obvious as a billboard.
What is MIL?
Mother-in-law...Eleanor Centonze (Jodi's mom) worked for Sheriff Rice.
Thank you. That explains a lot.
The police probably botched the job, and/or are hiding cover-up by someone & perhaps that's why they are so desperate to suppress evidence.
How could Michael have a future mother-in-law if he did not and could not marry again (he did not divorce Terri)?
He has been formally engaged to Jodi Centonze since the summer of 1997. You do know, too, that he has two children with her. One should be three or so, and the other is about 18 months old. Unfortunately, Jodi's mom, Eleanor, passed away in Sept. 2004 just as Michael and Jodi were expected to be deposed for the not yet scheduled guardianship hearing. I wish Greer were an honest judge, but from the fact that Michael has received no discipline from the court for not even showing up at court-approved scheduled depositions, then it's quite apparent that Greer is not an honest judge.

I was a bit confused when you said mother-in-law, but I guess you might have meant it in the sense that Jodi is his common law wife.
Thanks for the clarification. I debate with many people about Terri, and I want to get my facts straight, as I am often challenged by the pro-death crowd.

From Hyscience blog:
Late Blogging Today
Blogging will begin around noon today.
The Terri Schiavo Blogroll now has 48 blogs and growing.
We are considering a press release when it hits 100 blogs. Never before have 100 or more blogs "organized" to support a single event. One hundred (plus) blogs organized to force MSM participation in addressing the continuing injustice to Terri' Schiavo at the hands of her husband and the court of Pinellas County, Florida through Judge George Greer.
Join the Terri Schiavo Blogburst!:
Visit hyscience blog and search for Terri Schiavo Blogburst to find the script to add to your blog, etc. E-mail hyscience at firstname.lastname@example.org once you have it added or if you have any questions. It's time to burst the blogosphere for Terri! Ultimate goal? Getting her out of the hands of those trying to murder her and back on the road to her recovery in the care of her parents/siblings/etc. and those who love and want to help her.
I have no doubt he will, in this life or the next ... it will happen.
Was the article posted at top of this thread included in the DCF 11 page presentation to Judge Greer, requesting that he allow them time to INVESTIGATE THAT HEINOUS B@STARD (my words, of course)? I sure hope so....this FINDING of Terri's broken bones, MASSIVE BROKEN BONES (must have been SOME fall in the bathroom, Michael, YOU MONSTER!) is offensive and NEEDS TO BE BROUGHT OUT INTO THE LIGHT.
It's ungodly!!! That's why I'm questioning about the DCF's general descriptions of violations, and pray they get very specific .. including about these injuries.
Michael Schiavo:'When is that bitch going to die?'
In a stunning affidavit sworn , Carla Sauer Iyer, a registered nurse who was employed at Palm Garden of Largo Convalescent Center in Largo, Fla., from April 1995 to July 1996, while Terri Schiavo was a patient there, testified: "Throughout my time at Palm Gardens, " would say, 'When is she going to die? Has she died yet?' and " Iyer charged. "Other statements which I recall him making include, 'Can't anything be done to accelerate her death, won't she ever die?' When she wouldn't die, Michael [Schiavo] would be furious."
Conversely, Iyer said that when she would have to call Schiavo to inform him of a downturn in Terri's condition, Schiavo would be elated.
"Michael would be visibly excited, thrilled even, hoping that she would die," Iyer recalled. "He would blurt out, 'I'm going to be rich,' and would talk about all the things he would buy when Terri died, which included a new car, a new boat and going to Europe, among other things."

Most effective poster.
Thank you for the information.
First, Terri wasn't anorexic. At ~125 pounds at 5'4" she was still above her ideal weight.
Second, I have never heard of a bulimic who got similar health problems as Terri. They suffer a different range of problems, such as severe acid reflux and gradual wearing down of the esophagus. They're not skinny either. Name one bulimic who fell into a coma... anyone.
Third, even stress fractures HURT. There's no way Terri's daily life wouldn't be impaired. Especially with those rib fractures... you're constantly irritating it by breathing so you're hurting it constantly.
Finally, here's the medical definition of trauma.
"A serious bodily injury or shock, as from violence or an accident."
Does that sound like simple stress fractures to you?
"I think maybe we all don't have all the facts on all sides here, aren't the parents in trouble for using charitable donations not for the purpose it was collected, it was posted on Freep forum a few days"
NO, THIS IS ABSOLUTeLY NOT TRUE.
Great Analysis! One wonders how one lawyer gets in excess of $500,000 of money for one case. Sounds like money was being transfered for other uses as well. Hopefully, a full criminal investigation is underway at this time. This is a case calling for Mark Fuhrman who brought Skakel to Justice!
What about a hairline fracture on your femur? Couldn't you limp through that?
Why would she admit to her family that her huysband beats her? There are many wives, unfortunatly, who hide abuse.
Why refuse Terri Speech and Swallowing Therapy?
Why Refuse Terri Schiavo Speech Therapy?
Christian Wire Service ^ | 2/14/05 | Nathan Tabor
Unless Michael Doesn't Want to Know What She Thinks.
If Michael Schiavo is so sure that Terri wants to die why does he refuse to give her speech therapy?
Over and over Terri Schindler Schiavo's parents have asked that Terri be given speech therapy.
Terri's parents filed an emergency motion for immediate therapy in October of 2003, asking for 8 weeks of speech and swallow therapy. Michael Schiavo objected and the court sided with him.
In the light of Sarah Scantlin's recovery of her speech after 20 years, why won't Michael Schivo reconsider?
Speech Language Pathologist, Sara Green Mele, M.S. CCC-SLP, swore under oath,
"It is my judgment based on my training and clinical experience working with patients similar to Terri that she would, within a reasonable degree of clinical probability, be able to improve her ability to interact with her environment, communicate with others, and control her environment if she were given appropriate therapy and training as outlined above. These recommendations, in my opinion would greatly improve Terri's quality of life."
Sara Green Mele's complete affidavit is available online at: www.earnedmedia.org/mele.htm
Dr. Alan Keyes is doing radio interviews around the country right now on Terri's behalf.
He was on Chicago radio this morning.
Bumped for Felos.. :-)
Just in case he forgot about the bone scan.
Jeez! What an evil ba$tard!

Even a hairline fracture of the femur (or any bone) is extremely painful. I doubt anyone would limp through it, but I guess anything is possible...but the femur (along with the pelvis) is one of the strongest bones in the human body...a pelvic fracture is something that happens with a fall from a horse, an auto accident, or a severe beating.
We're talking about a young woman here, not an old person with extremely frail or decalcified bones. A very young woman.
Incidently, I had a potassium of 1.8 once and neither was comatose or even ill. I was not bulemic or anorexic, either, it was just a reaction from a diuretic, and was easily reversed with some OJ, meat, and veggies.
"Dr. Alan Keyes is doing radio interviews around the country right now on Terri's behalf."
I'd like to see Alan Keyes debate Neil Boortz who is ignorantly siding with Michael Schiavo. That would be some debate.
On second thought, maybe not. Why boost Neil Boortz' ratings.
Justice will be done.
