Schiavo case closed

The week's news at a glance.

Tallahassee

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush last week dropped his inquiry into the death of Terri Schiavo, closing the last chapter of a tragic saga that polarized the nation. Bush ordered the investigation in June, citing a possible gap between the time Schiavo collapsed at home 15 years ago and the time her husband, Michael, called 911 for help. The episode left her severely brain-damaged. But investigators found no reason to suspect foul play, and Bush declared, “It’s done.” Terri Schiavo died in March after her husband had her feeding tube removed, despite an extraordinary intervention first by Gov. Bush and then by the U.S. Congress. “The state’s involvement should have ended a long time ago,” said Schiavo’s attorney, George Felos.
