Breitbart’s coroner poisoned to death?
WND ^ | APRIL 29, 2012 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 04/29/2012 3:51:22 PM PDT by RobinMasters

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.”

Cormier, 61, had been rushed to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank after complaining of pain and vomiting.

“He was transported there early in the morning, and passed away late at night,” Ed Winter, assistant chief of operations and Cormier’s colleague at the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner, told KTLA. “It affects everybody when you lose a co-worker, but we’ll proceed and do our job and try to figure out why Michael died.”

The hospital then notified Los Angeles Police about Cormier’s death.

“At this point we haven’t ruled out foul play,” police Lt. Alan Hamilton told the Los Angeles Times. “It is one of the things being considered. We are waiting for the coroner’s results.”

And then she retired to a lovely house on the Patuxent River, in southern Maryland. Nice going on a secretary’s salary, huh?

Probably not far from the Kopechne residence. Ideologically, at least.

Look, There may be something to all this but I am just doubting WND.
I question just about anything they write and I never refer to them a a source of information.

Someone at another website is claiming that the coroner who did the autopsy is Lakshmanan Sathyavagiswaran. This is going to be the liberal meme, people. There is no proof this Indian immigrant did the autopsy. He’s the chief medican examiner who oversee the people who do the autopsy. Highly unlikely he would be the one who did.

There are two ‘Chief’s’ names on the autopsy report shown at WND. I guess it’s possible those two weren’t even the actual coroners who performed the autopsy though. Gotta go.. Someone’s knocking at the door. LOL!

I have read the article twice. The coroner’s office suspects foul play. A coroner’s office often suspects foul play when certain facts are ascertained.

So where is the conspiracy?

“I want confirmation that this guy worked on Breitbart’s autopsy.”

Yes, me too. I mean probably scores of people work at the LA Coroner’s office. This guy was not THE coroner.

Although, it is LA, lots of famous people die mysterious deaths there, and Breitbart or no, this one seems pretty mysterious too.

“That’s a possibility. I just happened to think of succynlcholine,which is used in surgery. It is quickly metabolized and very hard to detect,or at least it was.”

Who got the sux? The coroner seems to have ingested something, perhaps a poison, that killed him. Do you think that Breibart got the sux IV in the ER or ambulance? Apparently Breitbart had cardiomyopathy, or so it was said in the coroner’s report. There are many toxic cardiomyopathies such as alcohol and other poisons that usually take a long time to damage the heart muscle. Ischemic CMP is probably the most common cause but it usually occurs in older patients. Severe HTN can also do this.
Do we know the status of his coronaries? What about his valves? If Breitbart reportedly had heart problems for a while, I wonder if he had much of a work up. Even a CXR or ECG would be useful.

People should start using the word “conspiracy” according to the dictionary meanings. I’ve posted them numerous times.

People use the word “conspiracy” (thanks, Alinksly students!) to mean “Wingnut paranoia that isn’t factual”.

Actually it means a group of people conspiring to commit a crime. Simply put. There are real conspiracies and many times they pull off their crimes.

I want confirmation that this guy worked on Breitbart’s autopsy..

It is possible he was the photographer.

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.

It obviously wouldn’t be hard for a doctor or a nurse to get their hands on it.

Just the fact that that after Andrew was gone, the guys running the Big Government site, etc, (The Bigs) announced that they would not be doing anything with Obama’s eligibility enlightened me to the fact that they were probably warned in no uncertain terms that if they released anything along those lines they would be joining Andrew. I believe that Breitbart had much more that was going to fall. We will never know now. Very sad.
