She's looking for someone to confirm by phone the death of a somewhat old guy by natural causes with no autopsy:
“You have a Supreme Court Justice who died, not in attendance of a physician,” he wrote. “You have a non-homicide trained US Marshal tell the justice of peace that no foul play was observed. You have a justice of the peace pronounce death while not being on the scene and without any medical training opining that the justice died of a heart attack. What medical proof exists of a myocardial Infarction? Why not a cerebral hemorrhage?”
“How can the Marshal say, without a thorough post mortem, that he was not injected with an illegal substance that would simulate a heart attack…”
“Did the US Marshal check for petechial hemorrhage in his eyes or under his lips that would have suggested suffocation? Did the US Marshal smell his breath for any unusual odor that might suggest poisoning? My gut tells me there is something fishy going on in Texas.”How screwed up are the facts on Scalia's death?
And boy was that Supreme Court Justice Death Calculator way off!
And believe me, I'm not so upset over the immensity of the loss that my brain cannot comprehend a simple explanation -- it's just odd we've not heard a definitive version of that yet.
Anyhoo, just a lot of random weirdness I'm sure.
But how easy would it be to craft a Parallax View or Three Days of the Condor-type screenplay out of all this, with a powerful firebrand Supreme Court Justice at a "Presidential Suite" with 35 undisclosed power brokers (all comped, I'm sure), no security detail, some major case involving powerful interests on the Court's agenda -- you get my (powerful) drift.
I'm tired of practicing law!
