Murder Me TWICE, Part 2: What Michael DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW!

Part II

There are many myths and questions surrounding Terri's collpase, alleged "eating disorder" and the FACTS about the Malpractice Suits. In Part II, these issues are dealt with head-on. The FACTS in this post will blow you away! There also many pieces of the puzzle that are totally ignored by the MSM, not to mention Judge Greer. If any of these cases were in the criminal justice system, not only would Michael Schiavo be in for a swarm of legal trouble, but his attorneys very well would be also. Attorneys are bound NOT to put a witness on the stand that they know or believe will lie. The facts are clear. Michael Schiavo can't seem to be truthful about ANYTHING.

There is too much information and too many twists, turns, and angles to this story to lay it all down in one post. I am STILL gathering information. Some of the parts in this series may seem very long, please take the time to read them. These facts are crucial. In the cases where the parts seem shorter, it is most likely due to the amount of reading involved due to so many links.

Thank you for your interest in Terri Schiavo and please remember to do more than just be a spectator. TAKE ACTION!

1992 Malpractice suit: Opening Statement:

You'll find from the evidence past medical bills and lost earnings are in the neighborhood of $500,000, and to care for her in the future and compensate her for lost earnings, obviously, she cannot work. And if she lives a normal life expectancy, fifty-one years, and the cost of that, depending on whether or not in an institution or Mike takes her home is between 12 and 16 million dollars. They say, well, she doesn't have a normal life expectancy. You'll hear if she receives proper treatment, there's no reason why she shouldn't. And she is not just a head on a pillow. She can't respond much but she can respond, and she does respond a little bit, not much. But enough to give him hope.

Michael Schiavo Testimony:

Q. Why did you want to learn to be a nurse?

MS. Because I enjoy it and I want to learn more how to take care of Terri.

Q. You're a young man. Your life is ahead of you. When you look up the road, what do you see for yourself?

MS. I see myself hopefully finishing school and taking care of my wife.

Q. Where do you want to take care of your wife?

MS. I want to bring her home.

Q. If you had the resources available to you, if you had the equipment and the people, would you do that?

MS. Yes, I would, in a heartbeat.

Q. How do you feel about being married to Terri now.

MS. I feel wonderful. She's my life and I wouldn't trade her for the world. I believe in my marriage vows.

Q. You believe in your wedding vows, what do you mean by that?
MS. I believe in the vows I took with my wife, through sickness, in health, for richer or poor. I married my wife because I love her and I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I'm going to do that.

(Note: In January of 1993, a jury awarded Michael $350,000 for loss of consortium, and $750,000 went into a medical trust for all of Terri's future rehabilitative care, which was based on the testimony of Michael stating that he wanted to care for Terri for the rest of his life. If Terri should die, Michael would inherit the balance of the trust fund. Not only did Mr. Schiavo not provide Terri with rehabilitation, he has denied his wife any and all therapy, against Doctors' recommendations, since the 1993 malpractice award.)

Facts you about Terri’s case that Michael DOESN’T want YOU TO KNOW:

Dr. William Hammesfahr, Nobel prize nominee and neurologist, testified that Terri's neck injuries are consistent with only one type of injury: that of strangulation.

Foul Play In Terri Schiavo Case?

HAMMESFAHR: She is not in a coma. She did not have a heart attack. She is not in a coma presently. She absolutely can be rehabilitated. There's no question about that. In fact, she follows commands right now. She follows commands right now.

ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: Doctor Hammesfahr, I read the medical report. There was a report that when she came into the E.R., she had a rigid neck. Is that consistent with a neck injury?
HAMMESFAHR: Absolutely, yes, it is. They also did X-rays at the emergency room and the X-rays showed straightening of the normal spinal curvature, which is very typical of a new neck injury.

HAMMESFAHR: But the medical record clearly shows that there has never been a heart attack. Potassium causes damage by causing heart attacks, so we know the potassium is not an issue.....
Right now we have a woman who had a collapse with no known cause. No evidence of infection, heart attack, respiratory failure or anything. The only thing found in the emergency room is a damaged neck.


"Medical records and/or experts have revealed that her neck injury was consistent with strangulation. A bone scan revealed multiple fractures occurring within 1-2 months before or after the incident, which has been described as equivalent to her being “hit by a mack truck”. Michael has given three different explanations of how he found Terri after the incident." READ IT ALL!!

As for the myths going around about Terri's alleged "bulimia:"

Media repeats misrepresentations in Terri Schiavo case.

On February 24, 2005, Associated Press released a report penned by Vickie Chachere which cited an eating disorder as the cause of Terri Schiavo’s mysterious collapse and ensuing brain injury on February 25, 1990.Contrary to the account of writer Chachere, there was never a determination by any court nor the Florida Department of Health that Terri Schiavo ever suffered from any eating disorder, bulimia, anorexia or compulsive behavior that would lead to a heart failure at the age of 26.


  • If this is true, then why am I not hearing about it anywhere but on you stupid little blog?

    you say integrity is important- what, are you the only one in the world with the facts? Don't you think the Schindlers would be touting this everywhere if it were trur?

    give me a break.

  • anonymous:
    Does the phrase cover up mean anything to you? The press, the lawyers, and Judge George Greer have gone out of their way to suppress this information. It is only in recent days that the stories are seeping into the public view. More is coming. When it does, there will be others reporting it. Maybe the reason that you have not read it anywhere else is due to the scope of your surfing. Try going to for listings of other places you will find similar information. Personally, I like the presentation that Sherri has constructed best. But she is certainly not alone.

  • Anon, you must not read/research much or listen to TV news. Even a simple Google search on Terri Schiavo would show there's more out there then this "stupid little blog"!

    The saying goes, "None are so blind as those who don't want to see" - guess it could also be read, none are so deaf as those who don't want to hear.

  • I have read this in other reports also and what about the timeline between Michael hiring Felos in Aug. 1997
    filing to remove Terri's tube in May 1998( tube feeding was not considered life support at that time) April 1999 HB2131 introduced to Legislature Oct 1999 became law.. Jan 2000 Greer sentenced Terri to death by starvation and dehydration. Seem's like that would be grounds for an investigation to me.

  • This was exactly what I expected anonymous to do once you started laying the facts out there Sherri. First is was "where are the documents? and now it is "why doesn't anyone else have these"

    The final part will be "so what, she told Michael she didn't want to be kept alive this way".

    Same reason for being anonymous, that way they can be all over the map and not have to play by any known rules of discourse.

    SO glad you brought this up...

    That is why this timeline is going to take a while...


    right now-- the first two parts lay out the lies and myths about the "incident" some other things are thrown in-- but the focus is that Terri did not have an eating disorder- PERIOD! PLUS-- MICHAEL IS A LIAR! PERIOD!

    Byt he time we get to Michael's MIRACULOUS MEMORY OF TERRI WANTING TO DIE-- there will be no need to even point out that there is contradciting testimony-- by then- anyone with any sense will be looking at GREER saying -- "Uhhm- and YOU are going to KILL a woman because of somthing HE SAID? Where did you get your law degree? A CRACKER JACKS BOX?"

    The facts tell the story all on their own....

  • One of the problems with Anonymous comments is that it is difficult to tell who wrote. It was my impression that these are two different "Anonymous" contributors on this thread so far. Maybe I am mistaken.

  • I htink you are right-- in fact I think I may know who the second anonymous is......

    It is the first anonymous that may be the same thick head form yesterday...

    but again- when we can hide behind anonymous we don't need any consistency......

    Thanks Dee!!!

    Even the Schindlers.
    He is a MONSTER.

  • where is all this info in other places?

    all I see is blogs and newspaper articles and press releases anywhere else.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:05 PM  

  • eevil -- I would guess that most of us took wedding vows without the els.--I do think you are wonderful.

    I've been mulling over the bone scan results. To get that level of bone trauma, there had to be flesh trauma as well. The doctors said it was consistent only with a serious auto or train wreck. If she had been repeatedly beaten, you could get there too. But when? And where? And why did nobody notice the bruises all over her body which must have existed? If it were after she lost consciousness, there is opportunity if, but only if, nobody examined her; and she was under 24 hour care (all of the time?). If simultaneously, the ER should have seen it. If long prior, somebody should have known about it. Its a conundrum which doesn't fall into place very well for me.

  • levi

    did you read the depo by Dr Walker about the bone scan??

    Did you read Dr Hammesfadr today?

    See the picture is not totally clear-- this is part of the problem with this whole case...

    with so many lies and questions baout Michael Schiavo- how on earth do you sentence a woman to torture and death over HIS testimony.... that's it..

    He says Terri wanted to not be kept alive by "artificial means"

    YEAH! RIGHT! I hear 26 year olds use those terms ALL THE TIME! Not to mention he never remembered her saying that when he was sueing for 16 million dollars to pay for her medical care for the next 50 years!!


    Plus-- he never "remembered" her saying any of this until 1997- once George Felos got on the case-- and HE never got on the case until Deborah Bushnell solicited him to-- Michael was looking for a way to kill her-- and the attorneys gave him one....

    It is a murder conspiracy...

    pure and simple...

    Heck they filed in 1998 to remove her feeding tube....

    then it got "hung up" in court....

    WHY? It was agianst the law to do it! That's why-- meanwhile all kinds of elections going on- and viola- in 1999 they pass legislation making food and hydration life support...

    Just follow the timeline-- I can say all this-- but I am just a ranting lunatic-- so I am proving it all-- step by step-- with evidence....

  • "As MIchael claims such fervor for his wedding vowels..." I still say , Sherri, that you should lose the "el." After all it seems to be possible to have the oohs the ahs and the ees without benefit of marriage.

    I think that there is a colorable case that Michael Schiavo is a larcenous murdering fiend. This case is strong enough to say that depriving Terri of life on his say-so is absolutely unacceptable. The evidence for it is however not (yet?)sufficiently strong that he should be hunted down and imprisoned. Perhaps when a little more is known... The bone-scan evidence is impressive -- but I don't see it by itself as enough to string Michael up. The ER showing of no heart attack seems to me to be devastating to his arguments, but not an argument to string him up. The long-time-delayed diagnosis of strangulation does not seem to me to be sufficiently convincing (because of the time delay) to warrant criminal conviction.--my two cents.

  • levi


    I will definitely drop the "el" LOL!!

    (I really need an editor!)

    My dear friend- "YET" is the key word...


    Anyway--by the time the whole puzzle is put together, I think most reasonble people will see that there is clearly not enough evidence to justify starving someone to death. We don't even do that to CONVICTED killers...

    I also wonder where the New York Times is on this?

    Weren't they screaming about terrorists and their rights?
    Abuse, torture, etc?

    wonder how silent they would be about a prisoner in Gitmo having an "incident" and then we decide to starve them to death because a guard siad that they heard the prisoner say they didn't want to be kept alive by "anything artificial."
