Skip to comments.An Eyewitness Speaks Out About Andrew Breitbart’s Death Scene.
Posted on 03/08/2012 1:38:00 PM PST by Windflier
Los Angeles, CAIt was just after midnight when Christopher Lasseter was walking his little dog in Brentwood. He watched a man he now knows to be Andrew Breitbart crossing Barrington from The Brentwood.
Beritbart was walking without apparent distress in the direction of the Starbucks across the well-lit street. Once Breitbart stepped up on the curb, as Lasseter put it, He fell hard like a sack of Potatoes.
A man unknown to Lasseter called 911. The 911 operator told them to begin chest compressions on Beritbart until the police and paramedics arrived.
The very top photo shows where Breitbart died on his back with his head close to the lamp post on the left and his feet under the newspaper vending machine to the right.
Lasseter described Breitbarts skin color as bright red.
I obtained the interview on video but its now property of TMZ.com so look for it over there. I will post a link here once its available.
We will be waiting with bated breath for the Medical Examiner's and the Toxicology Reports to know exactly what cut a young man's life short.
"Lasseter described Breitbarts skin color as bright red."
Sounds like cyanide poisoning.
The skin of a cyanide-poisoned person can sometimes be unusually pink or cherry-red because oxygen will stay in the blood and not get into the cells. The person may also breathe very fast and have either a very fast or very slow heartbeat. Sometimes the person's breath can smell like bitter almonds, though this can be difficult to detect.
Not long ago, there was some news release that a crowd weapon was developed that caused its target to become so hot that it was untouchable. Seemed to be a wide=area type application.
I’ve actually seen this happen right before me. Was working outside on a very hot day (over 100) and the guy beside me just drops like a rock. No warning, no nothing.
I immediately started chest compressions on him while somebody else called 911. They tried to jump start his heart but to no avail.
I had anxiety attacks over it for more than a year. Something you never forget.
Did A.B. have HTN?
People can look "flush" during a M.I.
I've seen it....in a witnessed arrest. Or someone who has just arrested.
Doesn't take long though...to have the patient look dusky in color. Some variables....of course.
Not sure I'd jump to your conclusion.....As it seemed he had a cardiac history.
Hydrogen cyanide gas - the assasins weapon of choice for causing a heart attack.
In Andrew’s case, if hydrogen cyanide was used, since he already had heart problems it would appear a natural death.
Using a dart, hydrogen cyanide would only leave a small red mark where the dart hit.
Folks, this autopsy is taking a long time for determination, particularly if he died from an infarction (heart attack). Must be waiting for toxicology reports, I suspect.
Silent Guardian. It heats a very thin layer of skin. When it hits you you feel pain, but it does not actually heat you up.
Heat stroke sometimes turns the victim’s skin bright red, and HS can come on very suddenly. But, a heart attack can give you a flushed face, too.

I am a boarded toxicologist and that was my first thought. Cyanide is a quick killer.
If he just had a heart attack odds are the autopsy won’t show anything (other than a blocked artery), a recent attack will show soft necrotic tissue, and a healed MI should show scar tissue.
I have never seen anyone have a massive heart attack. Do they drop like a sack of potatoes? Breitbart was walking fine, no distress then boom. I wondered about those blood clot things, too. He did fly a bunch and was constantly online. I am still in shock over it all. It is all too strange. I hate it...just hate it!
Even in death the media.
*his feet under the newspaper vending machine to the right.
Excuse me for asking ... but what makes you think we will get the truth from the medical examiner's reports? The reports for release are probably already written - they are just allowing enough time for the real results to come back so they can be shredded and the deceit won't appear TOO obvious.
When they come up with a forensic report that a gunshot victim is still holding the gun they claim he shot himself in the head with, they can come up with anything.
Is a “Hard Sack of Potatos Death” suspicious or not?
What’s the liklihood that Obama introducing and hugging the racist professor was the real Breitbart video?
And where is the dart? Did it auto-eject and self-destruct?
Glad you made it.
It once took me nearly six months to get a toxicology report from the coroner in Orange County, CA...and even then, I didn’t trust it.
Blocked artery,THE WIDOW MAKER, would also be obvious at autopsy.
Toxicology reports are what we are waiting for. Hope there are God fearing people involved.
I saw a video, where an older gentleman was giving a wedding toast. Right in mid-speech, he had a heart attack and he was dead before he hit the floor.
So yes, it can happen.
Some men a can be prone to heart failure when they hit 40.
Sounds more like a sudden cardiac arrest rather than a heart attack (myocardial infarction). Sudden cardiac arrest is more likely to drop someone like a sack of potatoes.
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you need only threaten to report me to the Admin if I dont add you to the list...
If the marxist in chief had Andrew offed it will NEvER be found out.
CIA has operatives do this kind of stuff for presidents since at least Johnson and probably much earlier.
An aneurysm will drop you like a sack of potatoes.
Why does the despicable TMZ always seem to end up with THE video every time there's a death and/or scandal involved?
I hope so, too...
If any of the candidates can resist the media, and parlay Newts strategy into a nomination, well have the choice between an imperfect but well-known Republican and the real Baraka Obama, not the manufactured one the media prefers.
I was easting dinner with someone who had a massive heart failure of some kind. Don’t know if it was a “heart attack”, but her heart certainly stopped. One moment we are discussing stuff, then she started staring off into space, then her eyes closed and she slumped in her chair like she’d been turned off by a master switch.
We got her on the floor, called 911, started CPR. She was indeed a sack of potatoes, but not red, she was grey and clammy.
EMTs arrived and got her going again, she’s OK now with no memory of the entire day. I wish I could erase that two hour period, personally.
I think if she’d been standing up she would have gone down very suddenly.
I posted this in another thread last week, but I’ll post it again. Brietbart at CPAC during an interview. The man is sweating profusely...I’ve had friends who had heart attacks and the only preceeding signs in the days before was profuse sweating. Just sayin’
And my husband had a guy from work drop and die from a heart attack. It was seemingly instantaneous. He was walking, then he was flat on his face and dead.
Someone freepmailed this to me today, I haven’t had a chance to look at it. Too busy to watch youtubes right now. I guess the person who sent it to me thinks I’m a nutjob tinfoil wearing conspiracy paranoid.
Anyway, if anyone knows this man or any other relevant details that would be intersesting. I will check in later.

Thanks. Survived two so far. I figure at this point it must be because Heaven don’t want me, and Hell’s afraid I’ll take over ;)
You did fine. CPR does save lives, but only works about 5% of the time.
If it was, indeed, murder then the investigators will have gotten suggestions as to what they must find in the form of offers they cannot refuse, not and continue to live.
Wow. This really makes one want to “seize the day”, given that we may get no notice whatsoever that our time is up.
Not my conclusion. Someone posted that on the thread at the link.
"...his feet under the newspaper vending machine to the right."
Absolutely. I look upon it as a mercy. Gone to Glory without pain or prolonged suffering. Good Lord calls you home, and your journey ends. Welcome home.
Andrew had been in a bar earlier that evening. He could have been darted anywhere.
From what I’ve read, the darts just disintergrate after impact.
True. I worked as a Cardiac Nurse for years Has anyone mentioned what type of Cardiac problem he had? He could have been plagued by disrhythmias not just CAD.
I'm not a secret agent spy guru...so maybe my Okie knowledge is bunk.
And my understanding of cyanide is pretty much nil.
So I know nothing....
The russians perfected a small perforated sphere that was air injected into a victim. Very small, could be the size of a BB and there are pellet guns that are very very powerful.
