Maybe a Doper doctor can answer this general question regarding Schiavo’s autopsy results.
According to this, there were no signs of strangulation or other trauma prior to her collapse, and it didn’t appear that she was given drugs or harmful substances.
My question is, after 14 years, what sort of signs would there be? Surely, even in a vegetative state, the body still has some recuperative powers left, and certain toxins would have been processed out.
I’m not saying he did or didn’t do anything, nor am I implying anything. I’m just wondering what the doctors would have been able to see after 14 years that would have caused them to say “You know, I think she was slipped a Mickey in 1990…”
