To submit a Letter to the Editor:

Clearwater, Florida - A Florida agency wants 60 days to conduct an
investigation into new allegations that Terri Schiavo was abused or mistreated.

The Florida Department of Children & Families does not name a person
responsible for the abuses, though Terri's estranged husband Michael has been
accused of abusing her before her collapse 15 years ago.

The agency filed an 11-page document with Circuit Court Judge George Greer
detailing why it wants to intervene in the case and shared the confidential
document with attorneys for both Michael and Terri's parents, Bob and Mary

Judge Greer is expected to rule tomorrow on whether to
extend the stay preventing Michael from starving Terri to death while Terri's

"They have no doubt that once a legitimate review is
done, the things they have been saying all along will be found to be true,"
Davis said.

In a statement on their web site, the Schindlers say they
welcome the involvement of the DCF "in their investigation into serious and
detailed allegations of abuse and to ensure that appropriate care and treatment
of Terri and patients like her is being delivered."
