The U.S. Federal Government Grossly Mishandled the Scalia Death Scene and Post Death Process
There is now NO question that the government’s treatment of the scene of death of Justice Antonin Scalia was highly suspicious and neglectful Rather than err on the side of caution, the authorities controlling the death scene went out of their way not to follow universally followed protocols. Every part of the process seems to have conveniently broken down … on purpose.
There are articles now being written about the most likely ways that Justice Scalia could have been murdered. That’s how suspicious the government’s conduct has been throughout. What follows is an excerpt from one of those recent articles as to the method of murder.
Many conspiracy-minded people are pointing to a small detail to throw some suspicion over Scalia’s death: a pillow found over his head. So could someone have entered his room and used that pillow to asphyxiate him? This method only really works with really old or young people, or those already unconscious. There are usually telltale signs of these murders — not only will most victims struggle, leaving signs of the fight behind, but the suffocation takes up to 5 minutes and the body shows this with hemorrhages under the skin. But there’s a catch: Sometimes the suffocation triggers a heart attack, leaving the corpse without many of the signs of a homicide.
Even a close examination can miss this cause of death. “Homicidal smothering is extremely difficult to detect,” reads one book on forensic pathology written by Dinesh Rao. “The autopsy may reveal asphyxia, but there may not be any corroborative medical evidence to prove foul play.”
Assassination by poison is an ancient art form. It’s also a good way to kill people without getting caught. Let’s say you’re the professional killer hired by — oh, let’s just go the whole way and blame this on the White House. They might ask how you plan on doing this.
“Well,” the killer would respond, “I’m a trained nurse and I’m a big fan of this muscle relaxant called succinylcholine. It’s the stuff we inject into patients when we want to jam breathing tubes down their throats while they’re still awake. But get this: In high enough doses, it paralyses people so they can’t breath. Most autopsies show this as a heart attack. It’s brilliant.” The White House aide smiles. “Then let’s take out that SOB.”
Sound far-fetched? Well, sure. But a similar scheme killed Nevada State Controller Kathy Augustine when her husband injected her with succinylcholine. The hubby was nabbed when coworkers reported that he was pondering ways to kill her, and looked more closely at her body. They found a small needle mark.
The drug doesn’t leave any direct traces, but it breaks down and leave metabolites behind that can indicate a poisoning. But the medical examiner has to be looking for those signs to catch them during an autopsy.
The paranoid can also ponder whether Scalia could have been killed with a gas. One easy choice would be to use carbon monoxide poisoning, undetectable by smell or color. There have been cases where a murderer has run a hose from the tailpipe of a car into a room where the victim is sleeping. (A doctor in Ohio named Mark Wangler did this in 2006 and got caught, mostly because his claim that the victim had a seizure was proven false. Prosecutors showed that she was dead when the call was made.) All a hired killer would need is a commercially available canister of carbon monoxide and a hose.
There’s a catch, though. There are usually telltale signs when a person is killed by CO. There may be froth at the mouth and nose. (The kind of evidence absorbed by a pillow perhaps?) The skin and internal organs can become bright red, almost like a stain. It’s unlikely that such clues would be ignored by an M.E.

At the end of the day one thing can be said with absolute certainty. There are too many questions and irregularities to pronounce the cause of death of Justice Scalia as “natural causes” or “heart attack”. This is what the government and mainstream media have both attempted to do with no evidence whatsoever.
Therefore, the only remedy is a thorough investigation of this matter by a truly objective and disinterested party who possesses the appropriate experience and knowledge of a forensic medical examiner. There ought to be at least 2 or 3 competent professionals working independently on this cold case.
When a highly prominent SCOTUS Justice passes away under exceedingly mysterious circumstances, the U.S. Federal Government is obligated to go out of its way to arrive at a conclusive cause of death. Not to do so is a grave offense against the American Republic as well as the American people.
