Terri Schiavo Dies This Morning

MARCH 31, 2005 - Posted at 9:02 a.m. CST


PINELLAS PARK, FL - An adviser to the parents of Terri Schiavo says she has died.

The death is confirmed by an attorney for her husband, Michael Shiavo.

Word of the death came shortly after the parents, through their adviser, asked that they be allowed to be at her bedside when she died.

It was nearly two weeks ago that the brain-damaged woman was disconnected from the feeding tube that had kept her alive for years.  Even after that, her parents continued their desperate legal battle to have the tube re-attached.
