Gary Coleman Made "Choice to Prolong Life," Shannon Price Made Choice to End It

by at . Comments

Shannon Price took her unresponsive ex-husband Gary Coleman off of life support on May 28, with his cause of death officially listed as simply "Fall."

However, in 2006, Coleman specifically directed in legal documents that he didn't want anyone to pull the plug on him if he was ever in that situation.

Those documents, ironically, were filed by Shannon Price herself, as she makes an effort to be granted control over the disposition of Gary's remains.

Among the documents filed in court by Price, who Coleman divorced in 2008, is a health care power of attorney letter which Gary filled out in 2006. 

Under the heading "Instructions for Health Care," Coleman checked a box titled "Choice to Prolong Life" which states that "I want my life to be prolonged as long as possible within the limits of generally accepted health care standards."

The other option - "Choice Not to Prolong Life" - was not checked off.

Gary Coleman's former wife Shannon Price may not be a complete POS, but she hasn't done much to convince us of this with her conduct in the last couple of weeks.

Shannon Price was, legally, in control of Gary's medical decisions at the time of his death - but did she defy his wishes by taking him off life support?

In the documents, and in the interviews she shamelessly shopped (along with that death photo), Shannon has said she was "forced" to pull the plug.

She did not elaborate on why it was "forced," and while she may very well have felt that way, it would be hard for the girl to appear less sympathetic.

In a newly released 911 call - four months prior to the Gary Coleman 911 call regarding his ultimately fatal fall in May - Price was pretty nonchalant.

"Yeah, he's suicidal." That's how Price described Gary to an operator earlier this year, complaining that he was "humiliating me in front of my friend."

Local police later showed up and arrested Gary on a warrant for failure to appear in court for a 2009 domestic violence incident ... involving Price.
