SCHIAVO PUNCTURE WOUNDS FOUND AFTERPARENTS' VISIT
DUNEDIN, FLORIDA, March 29, 2004-Immediately after a forty-five minute visitfrom her parents, THERESA SCHIAVO was found by medical personnel to have been the victim of numerous wounds, five of them apparently caused by a hypodermic needle. MRS. SCHIAVO was found in a disheveled state, with her feeding tube wrapped around her back, and an allergy band pulled up very tight on her arm like a tourniquet. On one arm were four fresh puncture wounds, with another fresh puncture wound on her other arm. Also found were fresh scratch wounds over the puncture wounds, as if an attempt were made to conceal the puncture wounds.
What appeared to be a purple needle cap was found in MRS. SCHIAVO'S gown,confirming the belief that the puncture wounds were caused by a hypodermic needle. It is not known whether something was injected into THERESA SCHIAVO or fluids were withdrawn from her. MRS. SCHIAVO has been taken to Morton Plant/Mease Hospital for toxicology testing and other blood work.
A forensics team has examined the crime scene, and the Clearwater Police areinvestigating.
MRS. SCHIAVO'S husband and guardian has issued orders stopping all personsfrom visiting his wife until the police investigation is completed.
