1. Why Did He Have a Pillow Over His Head When He Was Found Dead?
“The circumstances and chaos surrounding the death of U.S. Supreme Justice Antonin Scalia at a Texas ranch have sparked many conspiracy theories.
Scalia was found dead in his bed Saturday morning at the luxury West Texas ranch. He was 79. Officials say he died of natural causes. An autopsy will not be conducted and police say there were no signs of foul play.
According to the Washington Post, the hours after Scalia’s death were filled with “chaos, confusion and conflicting reports.”

“WASHINGTON (AP) — The Texas county judge who decided no autopsy was needed following the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is raising new questions about Scalia’s health in the days before he died.
Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara tells The Associated Press that she spoke to Scalia’s doctor on the day Scalia was found dead at a remote Texas ranch. She says the doctor told her Scalia had a history of heart trouble, high blood pressure and was considered too weak to undergo surgery for a recent shoulder injury.
Those details are seemingly at odds with the recollections of friends who described Scalia has his usual, happy self during the time leading up to his death.”

– My question are:
- Incomprehensible that Scalia’s doctor would divulge sensitive medical information to a judge without a warrant and even then, not legal. Adding insult to injury, the judge is now divulging personal medical information ostensibly gathered from Scalia’s doctor in Virginia. Sorry, not credible. The proper response and course would have been for local doctor to examine the body and determine a cause of death or further inquiry.
- If the West Texas resort was so elite and exclusive, why would anyone attend without a doctor and medical staff on site? The nearest big city was over 200 miles away in El Paso.
A lot of things can happen in West Texas, from rattlesnakes to scorpion bites.
Wouldn’t exclusive guests expect this for a resort essentially a helicopter ride away from medical assistance?
I would think a risk assessment for any resort or lodging for a sitting justice of the US Supreme Court would be on site medical staff for a site at a specified distance away from a hospital. Calling off a security detail was not a wise decision and should not have occurred as well.
A sitting Supreme Court Justice is just as critical to the US political process as a sitting president.
We should take as much care.
