LAPD: Coronerís Official May Have Died From Arsenic Poisoning
CBS) ^ | April 27, 2012 8:20 AM | John Brooks

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.

After Cormier’s body was back at the county morgue where he worked until last week, toxicology tests are being run to determine the cause of his death.

Police along with a hazardous materials team have also reportedly searched his home on Auckland Avenue.

Maybe if it was "Nut-job/Conspiracy Theory Ping! " it'd cover a couple of bases and nobody would be offended? Heh. You're welcome. ;-)

Still doesn’t mean he didn’t know something about AB. He may also serve as a horse’s head.

So, not a good choice for a conspiracy-type killing.

As if this admin is known for making good choices in their shenanigans, i.e. the fake bc.

If there was an entry hole for a heart attack dart this guy probably photographed it.

If there were photos, you can bet they've long since been misplaced and lost.

I wonder if the deceased worked on the Breitbart matter.

And the one who most likely to know about it is dead.

Funny how the ball bounces, huh?

Exactly. The whole story about him having heart problems is questionable because of that.

And if his friends are making up stories to make it seem like this was an expected event, they must understand that it wasn’t. The one issue they are scared away from reporting on is the subject Breitbart had (just hours before his death) said he was glad Arpaio was going to report on: the forgery and fraud involving Obama’s BC and draft registration.

The article says he was the photographer for the special operations unit. If ever there was a special operation, I’d think Breitbart’s death would qualify as a public enough issue to require detailed documentation. What would a coroner’s office photograph? Well, I know there are photos of the bodies from previous suspected heart attack dart assassinations. I would imagine they photograph the body to document the findings.

I don’t know how coroners’ offices work so maybe somebody can give me an insider’s perspective, but at first glance I would think this would be the guy who photographed Breitbart’s body. If so, then he’s the guy who would have documented the only way there is of knowing whether a heart attack dart was used. And now he’s dead.

Cormier, who CBS reports also served occasionally as “a photographer with the special operations response team,” became a minor celebrity himself when he starred in a DVD extra for 2005 horror movie Chaos.

The short, called “Inside the Coroner’s Office: A Tour of the L.A. Coroner’s Crypt,” featured the forensic technician showing writer/director Dave “The Demon” DeFalco around the morgue.

According to one film blogger who watched the clip:

“This dude is even weirder than DeFalco...he’s kind of a mix between Dr. Lawrence Jacoby and Dr. Matthew “Frankenstein” Logan. He walks us through the various crypts pointing out all sorts of stuff, like dead babies (wrapped in plastic) and dead fat people (wrapped in plastic)! ... He even shows off his “tools of the trade”...including a long handle, curved head branch trimmer and a dry erase marker!”

There’s little to none in the archives on Cormier. May be worthy of a search of scrubbed information.

Frankly, too many coincidences here. First Breitbart dies the evening before he said he would begin an attack on Obama’s terrorist background.

And now this.

And I would agree that arsenic is a likely assassination tool in this case, because it fits Obama’s modus operandi. He doesn’t like subtlety. Both of his on-line COLBs are obvious forgeries, without even an attempt to do them skillfully. And now they make public that a coronor involved in the case has died of arsenic poison.

That’s the way the mafia and power-mad dictators like to work. Everyone knows it, but no one can prove it—or they’d be dead, too.

I am suspicious. This smells to high heaven. Something is not right. Someting is rotten in Coroner’s Office.

I have the admit, the moment I heard about this I thought of Andrew Breitbart. I wonder if this coroner worked on his case
