Silent Witness The Untold Story of Terri Schiavo's Death - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Mark Fuhrman, John Hinch (Narrator) We all watched Terri Schiavo die.The controversy around her case dominated the headlines and talk shows, going all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, the White House and the Vatican. — And it's not over yet. Despite her death, the controversy lingers. In Silent Witness, Mark Fuhrman applies his crack detective skills to examine&nb... more »sp;the medical evidence, legal, and police records. He conducts exclusive interviews with forensics experts and crucial witnesses, including friends, family members and care-givers.
Fuhrman will answer these questions:
What was Terri and Michael Schiavo's marriage really like?
What happened the day Terri collapsed?
What did Michael Schiavo do when he discovered Terri unconscious? How long did he wait before calling 911?
What do medical records show about her condition when she was first admitted to the hospital?
Fuhrman has complete cooperation of Terri Schiavo's parents and siblings, as well as their medical and legal advisors.
The legal issues and ethical questions provoked by Terri Schiavo's extraordinary case may never be resolved. But the facts about her marriage, her condition when she collapsed, and her eventual death fifteen years later, can be determined.
With Silent Witness, Mark Fuhrman will go beyond the legal aspects of the case and delve into the broader, human background of Terri Schiavo's short, sad life.
He definately asks the right questions many overlooked. Only God knows what really happened at the time Terri collapsed, but he has some interesting speculation based on certain facts. Good investigative instincts at work.
The Terri Schiavo case as recollected by a retired detective who paints Michael Schiavo as a controlling, abusive psychopath. Not that that's not accurate, but the first few chapters are fairly one-sided. The 'meat' of the book is kind of technical in terms of possible scenarios that Fuhrman recounts in an attempt to explain how Terri ended up in the "persistent vegetative state" that was exploited by so many for their own ends. Overall, it was a good read; interesting, informative and confirmed some of my own suspicions surrounding the case.
