Watch: Antonin Scalia’s Son Just Revealed What He Thinks Caused His Father’s Death

By Randy DeSoto. The oldest son of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia believes his father died of natural causes.

“Our family just has no doubt that he was taken from us by natural causes,” Eugene Scalia, 52, said on the Laura Ingraham radio show on Wednesday. “We accept that. We’re praying for him. We ask others to accept that and pray for him.”

Scalia, who is an attorney, understands why people would have a hard time wrapping their minds around his father’s sudden passing.

Scalia is one of nine children the late justice had with his wife of fifty-five years, Maureen. “Everybody loses their dad at some point,” the oldest son observed. “And I feel blessed that it’s not just the family who feels that he was great, but that there are millions of people who feel that and so many, like you, who are honoring it.”

Eugene told Laura Ingraham that his mother is a strong woman who is holding up well. “I don’t know that the Lord could design a better support network,” he said. That includes “a built-in priest,” the justice’s son, Paul.

Justice Scalia, who was a devout Catholic, joked during an interview that Eugene and his other sons were relieved when Paul decided to “take one for the team” and become a priest. (Read more from “Antonin Scalia’s Son Just Revealed What He Thinks Caused His Father’s Death” HERE)


Scalia’s Son Calls the Conspiracy Theories About His Dad’s Death a ‘Hurtful Distraction’

By Allan Smith. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s eldest son is slamming the wild conspiracy theories about his father’s death on Saturday at the age of 79.

“It’s, I think, a distraction from a great man and his legacy at a time when there’s so much to be said about that and to help people even more fully appreciate that,” Eugene Scalia said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Wednesday. “And, on a personal level, I think it’s a bit of a hurtful distraction for a family that’s mourning.”

He added that his father “would have been the first to tell you … that we’re from dust, we return to dust, your life could be taken from you at any instant.”

“He lived this incredibly full and active life,” he continued. “But I knew, and he knew, that he was at a place in life where he could be taken from this world at any time.” (Read more from “Scalia’s Son Calls the Conspiracy Theories About His Dad’s Death a ‘Hurtful Distraction'” HERE)

  • Um, how does he know that ? From all accounts, he was in good health.

    • deanbob

      “he wasn’t a Supreme Court justice.” … about to hear another critical POTUS overreach (among others) case. Maybe they have less of an understanding of what this man and his cronies are truly capable of? After all, the last 2 justices put on the court have at best misrepresented themselves and their positions during senate hearings – and more likely lied and contorted their responses in an effort to mislead the few GOP senators who asked meaningful and probative questions.

    Watch out for those natural causes — they are killers!

    • wandamurline

      Yeah, just ask Ambassador Stevens or Vince Foster.

  • Paul

    I think it is disgusting how 1 minute after the poor guy died politicians were on it like buzzards. Despicable; at least wait until the guy is buried!

  • Linda

    I wonder if the family has been threatened ? Why would a dying man place a pillow over his head ? The timing is so right for obama to nominate a liberal judge. Obama even said “we will reward our friends & punish our enemies “

    one son who was to have gone to the event – suddenly did not–why–
    due to the large numbers of ” accidental deaths ” (I remember 3 under the Clinton’s alone!)
    power corrupts – on both sides of the political spectrum–
    I ‘smelt’ something fishy even before the pillow over the head and lack of autopsy was revealed–

    The problem we are all having with this is …. Justice Scalia’s arms were crossed across his chest in the “Rest in Piece” position from days of old…. and a pillow was over his head. And the bed didn’t have a wrinkle in it. Someone having heart attack MOST ALL THE TIME, has chest pains, trouble breathing, pain in the right arm …. I realize there are cases where a person’s heart just suddenly stops cold and that person DROPS to the ground deceased. But when those cases happen, the person doesn’t have time to grab a pillow, put it over their head, and then cross his arms over his chest in the “rest in peace” position. So if he dropped dead and fell to the floor or fell on the bed, he would not have been posed. And if he was suffering the attack while it was occurring, would he have reached for a pillow and put it over his head and then crossed his arms? Somehow that doesn’t seem realistic? Scalia was AN IMPORTANT Supreme Court Justice and there are 4 or 5 cases lined up to be heard by the court that A LOT OF PEOPLE want RULED THEIR WAY and his sudden death is suspicious, to say the least. Certainly an investigation should be done.

      It seems obvious that in his dying agony, Scalia realized that posing himself as if he had been smothered with a pillow would be a wonderful last practical joke, and used his last minutes to pull it off. It happens all the time. Doesn’t it?
      Unless Scalia was in the habit of sleeping in that position with his pillow over his face, I don’t believe he died of natural causes.

      • wandamurline

        Regardless, why would it hurt to have an autopsy done? I do not trust Oboz or our government any more and put nothing past them…silence us conspirators by doing an autopsy.


    My condolences to the family and I regret the loss of Judge Scalia……the problem is not what the family wants because there were no witnesses to verify the conditions under which this man died, the rush to remove the body, no coroner but a judge who never saw the body, took a deputies word and then changed her mind 3 time, the rush to prepare the body for cremation and not saving the embalmed fluids….now why with all this is at stake with this Judges passing would the family facilitate the no autopsy thinking…….he was a public servant of high accord and we the people deserve satisfaction……

    • someone knocked on their door and strongly suggested it would really put the country through too much pain to question the cause of death.

  • Liberty1941

    He sounds like he might have something in common with Ted Kennedy. The only brother who never challenged the Government, and then aided them by pushing through all the civil law violations he was assigned. Could just be he is too lazy to fight the battle for his father.

    I guess you could consider some poisons to be made of natural plants or chemicals which might be a natural cause.
