Frank: It Wasn't "Widely Held" That The Family Took Her Off Life Support

Frank, I read your profile of Dominique and you seem to imply that it may not have been true that her family called for her to be disconnected from life support at Cedars-Sinai. You imply that she simply died in her coma, never regaining consciousness. Well, she never did, that's WHY the family made the decision to take her off life support. There were three brain scans done, which all three showed no activity.
Read Dominick Dunne's account to hear from the source himself as to when and why they pulled the plug on their beloved daughter. Read "Justice: Crimes, Trials, and Punishments" by Dominick Dunne. (Also available on audio book, which I have.)
I was at Cedars-Sinai three weeks ago, by the way. Also went to Santa Monica to research the John Sweeney trial. I was happy to lay flowers for Dominique (and Natalie Wood) at Pierce Bros. Westwood. Wish I had for Heather O'Rourke, who is my next subject of my book.

p.s. How are things back at the Natalie Wood forum now that I am gone?
