Terri Schiavo to have autopsy.

[Felos] also said that the chief medical examiner for Pinellas County, Dr. John Thogmartin, had agreed to perform an autopsy. He said her husband wants definitive proof showing the extent of her brain damage. Michael Schiavo contends his wife told him years ago she would not want to be kept alive artificially under such circumstances.

An attorney for Schiavo's parents, David Gibbs III, said her family also wants an autopsy. "We would certainly support and encourage an autopsy to be done with all the unanswered questions," Gibbs said.

Well, I'll be dipped. I didn't think Michael would let this happen.

But I'll predict right now that autopsy records will be sealed immediately and will not be released to the public.
