Sheriff 'patiently' awaits ruling on pregnancy tests

Planned Parenthood records now only hope of solving infant death

At the Buena Vista County Sheriff's Department office in the bowels of the county courthouse, don't expect to hear the people in badges debating the court case over Planned Parenthood pregnancy testing results.

Authorities are seeking the names of women tested positive, in hopes of solving the May fatality of a newborn boy found in the trash hauled into the recycling center. The issue has created a firestorm of national opinion on medical record privacy rights, showing up on TV news programs, major magazines and most recently, in the New York Times.

Sheriff Chuck Eddy steers clear of that issue, and, he says, the court debate isn't on his mind right now.
