Trail of Death: Breitbart Coroner Turns Up Dead, Arsenic Poisoning Suspected
WMD ^

Posted on 04/30/2012 10:00:10 AM PDT by quesney

Medical examiners in Los Angeles are investigating the possible poisoning death of one of their own officials who may have worked on the case of Andrew Breitbart, the conservative firebrand who died March 1, the same day Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced probable cause for forgery in President Obama’s birth certificate.

Michael Cormier, a respected forensic technician for the Los Angeles County Coroner died under suspicious circumstances at his North Hollywood home April 20, the same day Breitbart’s cause of death was finally made public.

“There are mysterious circumstances surrounding his death,” said Elizabeth Espinosa, a news reporter for KTLA-TV. “We’re told detectives are looking into the possibility that he was poisoned by arsenic.”

“who may have worked on the case of Andrew Breitbart”

OK, so who’s causing a panic situation before getting the facts?

Andy Breitbart keels over one night as he's walking home from dinner.

People on the right, horrified, asked "what about foul play?"

We're told "hey, don't be ridiculous, and anyway, there's going to be an autopsy, a full toxicology report, you'll get your answer (gee what a bunch of nutjobs!)"

Then, after a suitably dignified interval, the answer comes down from on high: "Mr. Breitbart died of massive heart failure, these things happen, and there will be no questions."

The conservative crowd walks off, scratching their heads. The guy wasn't even 50, and he keels over, and it's just coincidence that thousand of left-wing crazies -- including a good number who are in very powerful positions in the government -- wanted to see him pushing up daisies? Huh, that's life, I guess.

Then, a few weeks later, we find out that the guy who did the toxicology report has himself died? And it looks like he was poisoned? By means of a chemical that's used as a synonym for "deadly poison" even in Bugs Bunny cartoons?

I don't know, Martha. Somethin' don't seem raht.

They forgot to mention Michael Cormier’s non-existent heart problems dating back over a year.

In three months time one of the detectives investigating Cormier’s poisoning will drop dead in the street.

After bumping into a jogger.

who may have worked on the case of Andrew Breitbart

Anyone verify whether or not He was the coroner or not? This would be an easy rumor to start and I don't want to continue it unless it's proven to be true. We are not liberals who fabricate things.

From WND story:

It’s still unclear if Cormier personally worked on the probe into Breitbart’s death, and WND has left messages with the coroner’s office seeking comment.

On April 20, the same day Cormier died, the coroner’s office released its findings into the death of Breitbart, stating the 43-year-old conservative media powerhouse died of natural causes, listing cause of death as heart failure

Timing is interesting; to say the least. Does not discount 'coincidence'; as well; cannot discount 'message being sent' either.

Now I’m wondering if Briebart really had a heart problem. Maybe he was poisoned, too????

He took the photographs of Breitbart's body, so would be able to verify if the photos may have been altered or some missing. For example, photos of puncture wounds or other odd things that come up on detailed photos of corpses. He was also in the chain of custody of the autopsy collections and evidence.

No big deal. I'm sure it's just a coincidence. Arsenic poisoning happens all the time to coroners. Doesn't send a message or in fact mean anything to those that might be snooping around.

Now what was the blockbuster info that Breitbart had planned to release this fall? Does anybody remember what the subject of that was going to be?

Has the enviro-nuts - the ones who wanted the homes of conservatives burned to the ground - have they resigned yet?

“It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.

“Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”

“It’s a deterrent factor,”

Found it on a random site. I think it was LA newspaper online or something like that. Lots of comments about how odd it was and that if his coworkers and hospital staff hadn't made comments, that an autopsy would not have been performed as a matter of routine.

Like I said, it might all be one big coinky-dink, but it does make you scratch your head when you put this guy with the gay choir director that are dead in Chicago that said he had sex and crack with TOFUS.

Like the song says, "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor"....

If I were a conservative Supreme Court Justice, I would be worried, very worried.

There was an article posted a few minutes ago on this topic and apparently he had nothing to do with Breitbart’s death (per this post). And apparently there are quite a few photographers in the department.

Well; for 'better or worse'; have had my tin foil hat on re Breitbart. Made more suspicious given that person who called 911 offered that he noticed that his skin was bright red. (Can be a sign of cyanide poisoning - which is difficult to detect as it dissipates after a short time in body.)

Los Angeles, CA/ crimefilenewslink

It 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.

[...] Lasseter described Breitbart’s skin color as bright red. [...]

Beyond their heartache; am wondering what his family is thinking about all of this. . .

Every single one of us should be very worried every day that this sick regime is in power.
