Conspiracy theories abound after some high-profile deaths including the recent passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
The 79-year-old New Jersey native was found dead at a Texas ranch over the weekend.
It was determined he died of natural causes and an autopsy was not necessary.
But former homicide detective William O. Ritchie is questioning the way the local authorities handled Scalia’s passing.
The former head of criminal investigations for the capital’s police department said there exists no medical proof Scalia definitively died of natural causes.
“I took a look at the report and I almost fell out of my chair,” Ritchie told The NY Post from his home in Maryland.
Speaking with the Washington Post, Ritchie said:
“You have a non-homicide trained US Marshal tell the justice of peace that no foul play was observed. 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.”
“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?”
