Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

Go to this website and read their profile of Michael Richard Schiavo:


Born: April 3, 1963, Levittown PA. Parents, William and Claire Schiavo (both deceased). Michael is the youngest of five boys.

Married: November 1984 to Theresa Schindler, 20 yrs. of age. Michael Schiavo was 21 yrs. old.

Physical Characteristics: Michael Schiavo is 6’6" and weighs close to 250 lbs., compared to Terri’s 5’3" height and 115 lbs. weight.

Residence: Moved from Philadelphia, PA to St. Petersburg, FL in April of 1986. From 1995 to the present, living with his fiancée, Jodi Centonze and their two children, residing in Clearwater, FL
Early Employment: Michael Schiavo’s initial employment in Florida was the onset of employment at six different restaurants over the ensuing 2 ½ years. His length of employment at times was only for two weeks to a month.

Michael Schiavo’s attitude was a major contributor to his chronic unemployment. He had a tendency to outspend Terri’s income, and his inability to retain employment created a serious financial problem, impacting their marriage. Also, it has been alleged that Michael’s restaurant environment introduced him to drugs.

Some Background Information: Most people, particularly Terri, were easily intimidated because of Michael’s size. It has been documented that Michael had rages of anger and would use his physical stature to bully people, and as indicated in their attached personal experiences and affidavits, it was mostly women that were the subject of Michael’s episodes of anger.

In the early 1990’s, Michael Schiavo’s treating psychiatrist, Dr. Peter Kaplan, stated in a phone conversation with Terri’s father, in regards to a violent episode occurring between Michael and Terri’s younger sister Suzanne, that Michael was potentially dangerous and should a situation re occur, to call the police.

In a deposition from November 1992, that Michael admitted Dr. Kaplan prescribed Welbutron, Paneior, Elavil and Prozac medication to treat his condition.

Additionally, contrary to everything Michael admittedly learned in his CPR training, he did not turn Terri over and clear her airway the night that she collapsed. His CPR training could have re-started her heart.

So, William and Claire Schiavo are deceased and aren't around to see what their sons have become and what they have done to their family name.

Michael is the youngest of five boys. I've previously run across mention of Scott, Steve, and Brian. With Michael, that only makes 4 of their sons.

Read the whole thing. What a pity Michael's psychiatrist couldn't prevent his patient from becoming a murderer.

You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
