Here's an excerpt from an article about Terri Schiavo's autopsy results.
The Associated Press
Updated: 4:26 p.m. ET June 15, 2005LARGO, Fla. - An autopsy on Terri Schiavo backed her husband’s contention that she was in a persistent vegetative state, finding that she had massive and irreversible brain damage and was blind, the medical examiner’s office said Wednesday. It also found no evidence that she was strangled or otherwise abused.
But what caused her collapse 15 years ago remained a mystery.
The autopsy and post-mortem investigation found no proof that she had an eating disorder, as was suspected at the time, Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner Jon Thogmartin said.
Regardless of the autopsy findings, the Schindlers continue to believe their daughter was not in a persistent vegetative state, their lawyer, David Gibbs III, said after Thogmartin’s report was issued. He said they plan to discuss the autopsy with other medical experts and may take some unspecified legal action.
“We are, at this point, examining every option and no decisions have been made,” Gibbs said.
George Felos, Michael Schiavo's attorney, said his client “was pleased to hear the hard science and evidence of those findings.”
How can they deny SCIENTIFIC evidence? I really do feel badly for this family. They are so deeply in denial it must be completely eating away at them. They really should seek help!

TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) -- Gov. Jeb Bush has declared an end to the state's inquiry into Terri Schiavo's collapse 15 years ago, after Florida's state attorney said there was no evidence that criminal activity was involved.
Bush had asked State Attorney Bernie McCabe to investigate Schiavo's case after her autopsy last month. He said he now considers the state's involvement with the matter finished.
"Based on your conclusions, I will follow your recommendation that the inquiry by the state be closed," Bush said in a two-sentence letter.
