NEW YORK (WPIX)—The final autopsy results are in for the woman who drove the wrong-way on the Taconic State Parkway killing eight people.
The report on Diane Schuler, which was prepared by Aleksander Milovanovic of the Westchester County medical examiner's office, makes no mention of a tooth abscess, a lump on her leg or diabetes - which were three medical reasons given by the family's attorney as possible causes of the tragic accident.
The report, instead contradicts the statements made by the family's lawyer, by describing Schuler's teeth as "natural" and saying that while there were 15 wounds on Schuler's legs there were no signs of any lump.
The autopsy results also rule out a heart condition or complications with Schuler's brain, such as an aneurysm or stroke. It does, however, note that she had alcohol in her brain, urine, blood, stomach and eye fluid.
Meanwhile her husband, Daniel Schuler, prepped for a Tuesday night interview with CNN's Larry King to dispute the findings that his wife was high on drugs and alcohol during the time of the crash.
The 36-year-old mother from West Babylon, drove the wrong way for nearly two miles on the Taconic State Parkway on July 26, before crashing into another vehicle carrying three men from Yonkers. She was returning home from a camping trip in Sullivan County.
Schuler was killed in the crash - along with her two-year-old daughter and her three young nieces ages - 8, 7, and 5. All three men in the other car were killed in the crash. Schuler's 5 -year-old son was the only survivor.
