Report: Scalia Died From Heart Attack

On Saturday, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead at Cibolo Creek Ranch in Marfa, TX. It was revealed today that the justice passed away from a heart attack.

The death certificate for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will list myocardial infarction — a heart attack — as the official cause of death, Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara told WFAA on Sunday.

Scalia was pronounced dead shortly before 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. His death was confirmed by news outlets about three hours later. There was no sign of foul play.

The justice had told his friends the night before his death that he had not been feeling well.

Scalia was the longest-serving justice on the Supreme Court, and was appointed in 1986 by President Reagan.
