Is There More to Scalia's Death than Meets the Eye?

Judge found with pillow over his head

As one of my email contacts wrote:
1) not one witness present.
2) the security detail (U.S. Marshals) which usually provides security for him, was dismissed and not present.
2) he was found dead with a pillow over his head.
3) pronounced dead by a judge over the phone without ever seeing the body.4) no autopsy was done.
5) the body was immediately embalmed, a process which would destroy all toxicology evidence.

What could possibly be wrong with this ? "Move along, move along; nothing to see here."
It does seem strange not to order an autopsy for a sudden death of a controversial public figure like Scalia. Just sayin'. On the other hand, he was 79, overweight, and they say he had some chronic health conditions. At this point, we will never know, but the timing is certainly convenient for the liberals if they can get another justice named by Obama before he leaves office.

Regardless of Justice Scalia's cause of death, one thing is for sure: we all need to pray for the repose of this great man's soul. He earned our gratitude and prayers. May the Divine Assistance remain always with us, and may the soul of Justice Scalia and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

An overweight 79 year old man with a stressful job died!?! It must be murder!

your email contact is spreading misinformation.

No, Anonymous, my friend is not spreading misinformation. All his facts are accurate. You can disagree with his opinion that the situation was fishy, but you can't accuse him of misinformation. I've checked all the facts and they are exactly as he said.

The one thing that dissuades me from foul play is, I can't imagine his son's silence if something suspicious went down. Silence and cover up of murder is contrary to his Dad's legacy and life's work -- not to mention his own.

Prayers for our country are needed, that is for sure...

I'm inclined to agree, but I hope they release information about the "chronic conditions" mentioned. Let's face it. Most people do not die suddenly in their sleep. And it's just plain weird to have a doctor declare somebody dead over the phone.

Perhaps with some justification, citizens are more suspicious than ever.

However, let me say, does anyone really believe that if there was foul play involved with the deceased, that the pillow would be left over his face?

Don't any of you folks watch "Law and Order" re-runs? :)

Pray for his soul, comfort and consolation for his family. And, the gift of wisdom to those who will chose his replacement.

You're spreading innuendo without any access at all to first hand information.

>Most people do not die suddenly in their sleep
And yet, it is not uncommon either.

> just plain weird to have a doctor declare somebody dead over the phone.
First of all this is inaccurate. It was a Judge, not a doctor. You can't even get that basic fact right. Second, it is allowed by Texas law. Texas is a very large state with significant distances to cover. She consulted those present and his doctor.

Most importantly, the family requested no autopsy. Embalming is typically required for transport at least by common carriers and sometimes by state law. As a Catholic, are you going to suggest delaying the return of his body and his Requiem Mass just to satisfy the conspiratists?

The family is not raising questions. Why should you? His family is not noted for being mush-headed. It's almost an insult to his family to question their judgment especially considering they have access to far more information than you. Why make this time more difficult for the family, by making them endure the public speculation of foul play?

How about a little decency and respect for the family?

Mary Ann Kreitzer said...

Oh my goodness! I'm not the only one questioning how things were handled.

Having a judge declare death makes it even more bizarre. And it's not like we're talking about John Doe, but a Supreme Court Justice who had received death threats.

I'm not sure how speculation about foul play injures the family. It indicates how many people thought so highly of Judge Scalia, his importance to the country, and the evil times in which we live which make such speculation reasonable.

I read your article regarding the demise of the good Justice Scalia. A great loss to our country and Church. May he rest in peace. I noticed a debate in your comment box regarding the appropriateness of your article. I also noted that the Texas county Judge, claims that she spoke to Justice Scalia's Doctor before making her decision - a Doctor Monahan.

More accurately she spoke to: Rear Admiral Brian P. Monahan The Attending Physician for the
United States Congress and United States Supreme Court

Whether the Admiral was actually Justice Scalia's personal Doctor who physically conducted medical examinations of the Justice and the rest of the Supreme Court and the entire Congress is open to question.

It appears that there are a number of questions a reasonable man might raise about this affair. Keep up the good work.

God bless
