Andrew Breitbart's death to be reviewed by L.A. County coroner
LA Times ^ | March 1, 2012 | Staff Report

Posted on 03/01/2012 9:47:30 AM PST by Beaten Valve

The Los Angeles County coroner's office will review the death of conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, who collapsed and died Thursday while taking a nighttime walk near his Westwood home.

Given his young age -- he was 43 -- and the unexpected manner in which he died, authorities will conduct an autopsy to help determine a specific cause of death.

Breitbart's father-in-law, actor Orson Bean, said in an interview with The Times that Breitbart was found collapsed near his home about 12:30 a.m. Paramedics took him to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, but doctors were unable to revive him.

"We're devastated. I loved him like a son," Bean said. "It looks like a heart attack, but no one knows until" an autopsy is done.

I’m thinking that if this was not “natural causes” we’ll probably never be told.

Wonder where those videos are and if they’ll come out..

I don’t trust a LA County Coroner.

This is a great idea but even if they don’t find anything we will always wonder.

Devastating. Shades of Martha Mitchell.

Condolences to his family, and sorrow for all the conservatives he helped.

Well, we already know that Obama is willing to assassinate his ‘enemies’.
We know that the KGB pioneered the use of small doses of Hydrogen cyanide in gas form to mimic a heart attack in the assassination of their enemies.

Well, the fact that he died OUTSIDE of his home while taking a walk makes this a bit more disturbing. I hope the family hires a private pathologist to accompany the LA County Coroner. Michael Baden, MD, call your office.

Lemme see now...

A guy who said he had videos of Barack HUSSEIN Obama when he was younger....and he ends up keeling over at age 43.

Just a co-inky-dink.

Communists always do this. The history of the 20th century is littered with Red murders, that are always "accidents".

The evidence will be next to impossible to find.

But it's there.

Can the family hire an independent coroner? I damn sure would want my own in this case.

Microwave hit, I hear they’re undetectable (don’t know if that’s true though). It could be a heart attack, no matter how healthy you are, you can die with absolutely zero blockage in your viens from a heart attack, it’s called lack of Magnesium and Potassium and is the cause of most heart attacks, my humble opinion destined to be proven true in 10 years.

RIP Andrew ...

And his mother-in-law, Orson Bean’s current wife, is Ally Mills, who played “Norma Arnold”, Kevin Arnold’s (Fred Savage) mother in the TV series, “The Wonder Years”.

It is a necessary idea. I maintain that the ‘rats are purposely creating a political environment not dissimilar to what Stalin and Hitler created in their respective countries in the 1920’s-’30’s, one in which political assassination is the norm rather than the exception; and, let’s face it, Obama is a despot wannabe. It wouldn’t be the first time Ricin has been used.

Didja ever notice how every time Fast and Furious gets hot and heavy something happens to divert our attention??? If I was the family I would ask that an independent Medical Examiner from another jurisdiction stand in with the LA Coroner.

Wasn’t it Andrew who had the truth about Acorn through the kid and his gf? Sad we allow ACORN to live after that.

Glad you mentioned Martha Mitchell, I could not remember her first name.

She knew to much and had a very loose tongue and didn't mind speaking out, although most people just thought she was nutty. She was scared for her husbands life, sadly it was her own, she played with fire and paid the price. Think she had the same type of death as Marilyn.

Given past documented death threats against Breitbart, the description of walking, apparently alone, after midnight, but seen to fall by a neighbor seems slightly peculiar.

I was thinking the same thing.

The family needs to hire a private medical examiner to find out what killed him.

With the way Obama handles his affairs I wouldn’t doubt that Breitbart was murdered.

Anyone see a guy with an umbrella passing by him as he walked near his house?

Didn’t he have a known heart condition? I’m already finding the insinuations that it was foul play somewhat tacky at best.

#4, I agree with you. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Coroner’s findings say his death was due to drugs or some other thing like that to disparage Brietbart’s character. That is well within the realm of the democrat playbood

Good, although as some have said, you can’t trust an LA County corridor.

Probably much like that Arkansas coroner, who declared that that guy who offended clintbilly committed suicide by shooting himself twice in the back.

Not to mention the other guy who offended clintbilly and committed suicide by cutting off his own head.

But you never can tell. Maybe something will come out.

It wouldn’t be the first time Ricin has been used.

Ricin poisoning doesn't make you drop dead in the street. It's more like a bad infectious disease, starting with respiratory tightness and coughing and moving on to bloody diarrhea, vomiting, fever, etc. It takes 36 to 72 hours to kill.

This is terrible. Condolences to his family.

Conservatism has lost a great friend and ally.

I agree with most posters here, there should be an independent ME retained to examine his body. I don’t like conspiracy theories but, given the level of enmity between liberals and conservatives and the fact that Breitbast was such a high profile character, there should be an independant investigation.

L.A. has an 80+ year history of corruption in determining causes of death, dating back to silent movies. The only place it would have been more suspicious is in Chicago : )

If the cause of death was anything other than natural, I have no doubt the L.A. County Coroner has been advised as to what the “findings” shall read.

I trust nothing on this matter... there`s already wayyy too much circumstantial weirdness NOT to have some measure of suspicion.

This is what occurred to me. I have never been into conspiracy theories before but this happening in LA and what I know about the uninhibited nature of crazy hatred by lib/marxists there it does seem possible.
