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.
