BREAKING: Officials Reveal the Shocking Truth About Scalia’s Death
When the police raise their eyebrows and then start speaking up because a death looks suspicious, there is something to worry about. A number of homicide investigators are now criticizing how Justice Antonin Scalia’s death was handled. He was found in bed with his pajamas unwrinkled and a pillow over his head. No autopsy was performed and he was embalmed within 24 hours. Cause of death was pronounced over the phone without ever seeing the body. With doubt about the cause of death and with such a high profile person as Scalia, an autopsy should have been mandatory. This is not how this is done… ever.
From Western Journalism:
Homicide investigators are criticizing the procedures followed by Texas authorities after Saturday’s death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Scalia, 79, was founded dead Saturday while staying at the exclusive resort ranch owned by John Poindexter.
“We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bedclothes were unwrinkled,” Poindexter toldthe San Antonio Express-News Sunday. “It looked like he had not quite awakened from a nap.”
Scalia was declared dead of “natural causes” by Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara, who never saw the body. No autopsy was ordered.
“I took a look at the report and I almost fell out of my chair,” said Bill Ritchie, a retired deputy chief and former head of criminal investigations for the Washington, D.C. police.
“It’s not unreasonable to ask for an autopsy in this case, particularly knowing who he is,” said retired Brooklyn homicide Detective Patricia Tufo.
“He’s not at home. There are no witnesses to his death, and there was no reported explanation for why a pillow is over his head,” Tufo said. “So I think under the circumstances it’s not unreasonable to request an autopsy.”
Scalia was not at home, he was alone with no witnesses… I’m sorry, but for all the world to me this looks like a hit. Officers want to know why there was a pillow over his head. So do I. I have lived in a lot of places and I have never heard of a situation like this where there wasn’t a mandated autopsy to determine cause of death. This smells to high heaven. Unfortunately for Scalia, he had refused a security detail on the trip. In retrospect, that was a mistake. Nothing anyone can say at this point will convince me this was from natural causes. The man was far too important with too much riding on his decisions. I personally believe he was deliberately taken out. Call me a conspiracy theorist if you will, but I am far from alone. Many of those standing with me are police officers and detectives. People didn’t do their jobs here and all of this was rushed. We’d like to know why. We may never get those answers now, but we’ll keep looking. Bill Ritchie, a retired deputy chief and former head of criminal investigations for the Washington, D.C. police said this: “How do you know that person wasn’t smothered? How do you know it’s not a homicide until you conduct an investigation? You have to do your job. Once you go through that process, you can conclude that this is a naturally occurring death. I used to be an instructor in the homicide school. Every death investigation you are handling, you consider it a homicide until the investigation proves otherwise.” That’s precisely right and exactly what wasn’t done here.
