    Senior U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia found dead at West Texas ranch

    By Gary Martin Updated 4:05 pm, Saturday, February 13, 2016

    Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

    Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.

    According to a report, Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.

    Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia, of the Western Judicial District of Texas, was notified about the death from the U.S. Marshals Service.

    U.S. District Judge Fred Biery said he was among those notified about Scalia's death.

    "I was told it was this morning," Biery said of Scalia's death. "It happened on a ranch out near Marfa. As far as the details, I think it's pretty vague right now as to how," he said. "My reaction is it's very unfortunate. It's unfortunate with any death, and politically in the presidential cycle we're in, my educated guess is nothing will happen before the next president is elected."

    The U.S. Marshal Service, the Presidio County sheriff and the FBI were involved in the investigation.
    Officials with the law enforcement agencies declined to comment.

    A federal official who asked not to be named said there was no evidence of foul play and it appeared that Scalia died of natural causes.

    A gray Cadillac hearse pulled into the ranch last Saturday afternoon. The hearse came from Alpine Memorial Funeral Home.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement Saturday afternoon, calling Scalia a man of God, a patriot and an "unwavering defender of the written Constitution."

    "He was the solid rock who turned away so many attempts to depart from and distort the Constitution," Abbott said. "We mourn his passing, and we pray that his successor on the Supreme Court will take his place as a champion for the written Constitution and the Rule of Law. Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences to his family, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers."

    Scalia was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.

    Ranch Owner Reveals The Last Words Justice Scalia Said To Him The Night Before He Died

    Antonin Scalia’s last night among the living was spent among friends, according to Cibolo Creek Ranch owner John Poindexter.

    Describing the night before Scalia passed, Poindexter told reporters, “He was seated near me and I had a chance to observe him. He was very entertaining. But about 9 P.M. he said, ‘it’s been a long day and a long week, I want to get some sleep.’”

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
