Over the weekend, Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s office sent out a somber condolence recognizing the late Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Since the governor’s statement, additional information has come to light painting the circumstances surrounding Scalia’s death as anything but ordinary.
Scalia was a conservative-leaning judge known best for his adherence to the Constitution’s original interpretation. He fought against Planned Parenthood, supported private property rights and was a staunch pro-Second Amendment advocate.
Despite Scalia’s prominence, confusion still lingers over how he died.
Yesterday it was reported the justice was found dead at the Cibolo Creek Ranch in bed with a pillow over his head.
But Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara says the county sheriff on Saturday told her over the phone there was “absolutely not” any evidence of “foul play.”
Within a few short hours, Scalia’s body was transported to a funeral home, embalmed and is now on its way to Virginia.
“As a former homicide commander, I am stunned that no autopsy was ordered for Justice Scalia,” a former District of Columbia criminal investigations head posted on Facebook Sunday.
“If it had been me . . . I would want to know,” Presidio Justice of the Peace Juanita Bishop told The Post.
Former U.S. Army intelligence officer turned journalist Ray Starmann also suspects foul play.
“The circumstances surrounding Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia’s death are growing more suspicious by the minute,” writes Starmann for USDefenseWatch.com.
“What was the cause of Scalia’s death? Was it a heart attack or death by natural causes?” asks Starmann, adding, “No one seems to know. The story keeps changing. How convenient… Who dies with a pillow over their head?”
While the Republican Texas governor has made no indication he intends to look into the justice’s death, in the past he has devoted state resources to monitor and investigate other controversial allegations.

Last April, for instance, the governor announced he would deploy the Texas State Guard to monitor the military’s Jade Helm training exercises, asserting he wanted to ensure Texans’ “safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties” would “not be infringed.”

Last year, the governor also launched an investigation into Planned Parenthood following allegations the abortion provider was running an under-the-table, baby-part-for-profit scheme.

At the start of the new year, Gov. Abbott also boldly promised to challenge any gun control legislation Obama may attempt to pass via executive order, challenging the president to “Come and take it.”

The governor’s record suggests he has the interests of the people in mind. Given his past actions and the strange circumstances surrounding the death, will Gov. Abbott dispatch a team to investigate the death of Antonin Scalia? Should he? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
Infowars reached out to the governor’s office for comment, but has not yet heard back.
