Shady: Scalia Didn’t Die Of A Heart Attack, Certified Dead By Someone Who Never Saw The Body

WASHINGTON - MAY 20: U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia testifies before the House Judiciary Committee's Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee on Capitol Hill May 20, 2010 in Washington, DC.

Interesting developments in the death of Justice Scalia: he did NOT die of a heart attack as reports are saying, and his death certificate was filled out by someone who NEVER even saw the body…

According to the Washington Post:

“As details of Scalia’s sudden death trickled in Sunday, it appeared that the hours afterward were anything but orderly. The man known for his elegant legal opinions and profound intellect was found dead in his room at a hunting resort by the resort’s owner, who grew worried when Scalia didn’t appear at breakfast Saturday morning.

It then took hours for authorities in remote West Texas to find a justice of the peace, officials said Sunday. When they did, Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara pronounced Scalia dead of natural causes without seeing the body — which is permissible under Texas law — and without ordering an autopsy.

As official Washington tried to process what his demise means for politics and the law, some details of Scalia’s final hours remained opaque. As late as Sunday afternoon, for example, there were conflicting reports about whether an autopsy should have been performed.”

  1. The Marxist muslim from Mombasa who now wants to fill Justice Scalia’s seat at once with a compliant Obammunist was born in Africa where political murder is endemic, is a naturalized citizen of Indonesia which also has a long tradition of mysterious political demises and is clearly aware that time is running out on his plan to take the United States down. As for his anointed successor, the Wicked Witch of Westchester, so many bodies piled up during her rise and that of her priapic partner-in-crime that a term was coined in Little Rock for an unexplained and improbable but convenient death – Arkancide. This whole criminal quisling regime had a powerful incentive to murder the justice, as this could be the breakthrough they need for a one-party socialist presidential “republic” just like the ones the dear leader’s friends in Africa and Asia have. The justice’s death needs the most painstaking investigation, and any attempt to pack the court with babykillers and Bolsheviks must be fought unto the last ditch.

  2. Justice Scalia’s body should have an autopsy performed no matter the reason or cause of his death if what this author is saying is true. His death may be of natural causes, then again, maybe not???

  3. Why the rush to get him buried? What is the family afraid of for not getting an autopsy? This was a very important person to the U.S. So why not an investigation? No one sleeps with a pillow over their head and ask yourself , why was he laid out like someone placed him there? Way too many questions and now, no answers.

    • No one sleeps with a pillow over their head? That’s absolutely false. Many, many people do. I’m one of them, and have for years. Can’t sleep without it, in fact. There’s nothing sinister about that. And see my response above re: the unwrinkled bed clothes.

      • So tell me JosieCat, are you a liberal. Seems like you are just too fast at taking the liberals side. There should always be an autopsy when a public figure dies, especially this man since he died under what seems to be suspicious. Things are just moving a little too fast. What is the rush? I forget, this will be just the ticket to stack the deck in the liberals favor if they can push one of Obama’s nominations through before the elections. Senate should wait to confirm anyone until after the election!!!!

        • Nothing like reading into a person’s motives and seeing what you want to see! I find it interesting that the presumed conservatives here are, suddenly, wanting the government to take control away from the family involved. That’s hardly a conservative position.

          I’m looking at the whole situation: the forest, not the trees, and not seeing anything at all that evidences foul play. If it looked like there were, I’m quite sure I’d be of a different opinion. When there is no such evidence (evidence which WOULD necessitate an autopsy), autopsies are done if or when the person’s family wants them, regardless of the public status of the person. A family leaning against it may be persuaded, I would think, depending on the circumstances. I don’t know if some government high-up tried to persuade them; very possibly. If so, they said no. And, at least this time, they weren’t coerced. The government does all too much coercion, supposedly in the name of the public good.

          As it turns out, it has been made public in the last day or so that Justice Scalia had some serious health problems, including heart trouble, and had just been told by one of his doctors that he couldn’t have the shoulder surgery he also needed because he might not survive it. (One of his sons made a public statement.) Unless there’s obvious foul play, autopsies are generally done to set a family’s mind at rest about the cause of death. His family, knowing his situation, was not shocked that he died suddenly, and so they decided that they did need or want an autopsy. That’s their right. If there was any doubt at all that it wasn’t a natural death, I’m sure they would have decided differently.

          BTW, I do entirely agree with you that the Senate should NOT confirm any SC nominee Obama puts forward. But most of the Senate seems to be made up of wusses (funded by interests who want return on their money). I’m ever more leery that they will hold firm on Mitch McConnell’s assertion that they will not move ahead with any Obama nominee.

  4. There’s no evidence that Scalia DID NOT die of a heart attack. There would need to be an autopsy for that. The family has final say re: an autopsy. I haven’t heard any reported comments from anyone in Scalia’s family (a wife; nine adult children and their families). If they declined an autopsy they clearly have a reason/reasons. I don’t think a family can be forced to have a loved one autopsied, public figure or not. He may have had some health issue the public is not aware of but his family was. Even if that weren’t the case, it’s certainly not uncommon for men his age (and being somewhat overweight) to die suddenly of a heart attack.

    Also, re: the report that there was a pillow over his head when he was found, but the bed clothes were unwrinkled. A lot of people normally sleep with a pillow over their head, as well as under their head. (I’m one of them; have for years — keeps out light and keeps you warm in winter.) There’s nothing particularly suspicious about that. The fact that the bed clothes were unwrinkled indicates to me that Scalia likely died very soon after getting into bed.

    The door to his room was locked; there was “absolutely nothing” to indicate foul play — which is what the justice of the peace who pronounced him dead was told when she asked about it. In Texas the law says the person qualified to make death pronouncements does NOT have to be present with the body unless there’s reason to believe it was not a natural death.

  5. None of it matters. He’s gone, and let’s hope the Rinos don’t just cave in to Obama on his next SCOTUS appointment.

  6. A Supreme Court Justice has died…. I think I read that novel. Now, which author was that? Was it Grisham?… Help me with that.
