Andrew Breitbart collapsed and died suddenly of an apparent massive heart attack. The conservative firebrand wasn't yet 50. And oddly, the coroner who was pursuing the investigation into his death has up and died himself:
BURBANK (CBS) — An official with the Los Angeles County coroner’s office may have been poisoned with arsenic, police said Friday.
KNX 1070′s John Brooks reports investigators are taking a closer look at the death of 61-year-old Micheal Cormier.
Cormier, a respected autopsy and forensic technician who also was a photographer with the special operations response team, was rushed to St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank from his North Hollywood home one week ago.
Hospital staff eventually advised police that there may be “suspicious circumstances” surrounding Cormier’s death, said LAPD Lt. Alan Hamilton.
“We have information that could potentially include foul play,” Hamilton said.
Foul play? In a country in which the President has stated that he has the authority to kill a U.S. citizen at any time?
