Who is obfuscating the autopsy?
"Dr. Cyril H. Wecht, the well-known forensic pathologist and coroner of Allegheny County, Pa., told listeners of a morning radio show that he was denied permission to observe Terri Schiavo's autopsy, despite the wishes of her parents."
"Dr. Wecht told Quinn and Rose he was certainly agreeable to that, but that several hours later he received word that the medical examiner had declined to give him permission."
So now I am left wondering why Dr. Jon Thogmartin, medical examiner for Pinellas/Pasco Counties, District 6, has decided to block an outside observer from the autopsy. Is something wrong here? I don't know; but it seems to me that the whole Terri Schiavo story has been mired in secrecy and control by questionable government officials. Is Dr. Thogmartin trying to join their ranks, or does he just want to add fuel to the flames of those who claim that the autopsy will just be more of the same cover-up?
The Empire Journal seems to ask a similar question. The editorial strongly suggests also that the Schindlers should have a representative present. There must be someone in addition to the one chosen by Felos whose position is dependent on Pinellas County politics.
