BREAKING: Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia found dead

Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead today at a West Texas ranch.

Found dead of apparent natural causes, Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch.

According to My San Antonio, Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a statement saying:

“Justice Antonin Scalia was a man of God, a patriot, and an unwavering defender of the written Constitution and the Rule of Law. He was the solid rock who turned away so many attempts to depart from and distort the Constitution. His fierce loyalty to the Constitution set an unmatched example, not just for judges and lawyers, but for all Americans. We mourn his passing, and we pray that his successor on the Supreme Court will take his place as a champion for the written Constitution and the Rule of Law. Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences to his family, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.”

Justice Antonin Scalia was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan, and was considered to be the most conservative constitutionalists to sit on the court.

The investigation of his death is being conducted by the U.S. Marshal Service, the Presidio County sheriff and the FBI.
