Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Dead at 79

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Pronounced Dead of Natural Causes at 79

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died Saturday, February 13th. A devoted Christian Catholic, last rights were administered to Justice Scalia by a Catholic Priest, and his family is making funeral arrangements.

Justice Scalia died while on vacation in his sleep either Friday night or Saturday morning, at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a luxury hunting resort compound, owned by Houston businessman John Poindexter (no, not that John Poindexter). The 30,000 acre 5-star resort is less than an hour from the Mexican border, approximately 40 miles south of Marfa, Texas.

Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara pronounced Scalia dead of natural causes.

Judge Guevara made this announcement without seeing the body, and without ordering an autopsy, which is permissible under Texas law.  As reported by the Washington Times, Judge Guevara acknowledged that she pronounced Scalia dead by phone, without seeing his body.

She based this upon speaking to law enforcement officials at the scene — who assured her “there were no signs of foul play” — and Scalia’s physician in Washington, who said that the 79-year-old justice suffered from a host of chronic conditions.
