Following a judge’s order, John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth has removed Marlise Munoz from life support. 

Lawyers for her family stated, “The Munoz and Machado families will now proceed with the somber task of laying Marlise Munoz’s body to rest, and grieving over the great loss that has been suffered.  May Marlise Munoz finally rest in peace, and her family find the strength to complete what has been an unbearably long and arduous journey.”
