BURBANK (CBS) An official with the Los Angeles County coroners 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. Josephs Medical Center in Burbank from his North Hollywood home one week ago.
Hospital staff eventually advised police that there may be suspicious circumstances surrounding Cormiers death, said LAPD Lt. Alan Hamilton.
We have information that could potentially include foul play, Hamilton said.
After Cormiers 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.
Mind reader... ;)
Wow. That was my first thought as well. I wonder if we will EVER know.
My thought too. Is this Breitbart related.
Ding ding ding!
Doesn’t Soros own an interest in some mines that extract Arsenic? Sometimes Arsenic is a byproduct of Silver mining, and I know Soros has some Silver mines in Latin America.
Keystone Cops investigating this?
I went online to find the coroner report ( I wanted to know who signed it). It turns out that as of april 20th no coroner’s report had been released. It is due out within the next few weeks (supposedly). The toxicology report is the only thing that was released to date.
“Doesnt Soros own an interest in some mines that extract Arsenic? Sometimes Arsenic is a byproduct of Silver mining, and I know Soros has some Silver mines in Latin America.”
The only possibility is that the coroner’s death is a result of the investigation of the Breitbart assassination and you have enough evidence there for an arrest and indictment of Soros.
My very first thought...
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you need to threaten to report me to the Admin if I dont add you to the list...
LAPD Chief Charlie “let’s welcome the illegals” Beck.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping?
I take offense at that.
Me, too. And Kam Kuwata.
What part of "Arsenic Poisoning" doesn't spell conspiracy theory to you?
Arsenic poisoning isn’t fatal right away, and arsenic is the easiest of all poisons to detect with chemical tests.
So, not a good choice for a conspiracy-type killing.
If this guy’s death does have anything to do with Breitbart, it looks like his fellow employees are not cooperating with the game.
“I wonder if the deceased worked on the Breitbart matter.”
Unfortunately, that was my very first thought, too.
No part doesn't scream conspiracy/eliminating witnesses.
Arsenic? Work related...accidental (maybe rat poison,but you'd think the guy would know)...murder.Hmmmm.....
But a very good blunt instrument to intimidate other coroners/LEOs.
Some people lack a certain sense of subtlety...
We’ve adopted the monicker from one of our critics, same way ‘the big bang theory’ started out with the intent of disparaging the idea.
So, not a good choice for a conspiracy-type killing.
I disagree , arsenic is easy to source and fatal .. if you’re going to kill someone and it’s likely there will be an autopsy why bother trying to hide it...
The other 2 poisons that are easy to source would be Nicotine and Ricin ..
Especially if you want to be in-your-face about it.
And timed remarkably well for that purpose as well...
The problem the Soros thugs face is that they have to have plausible deniability to hide what they’ve done, but for the threats to be effective they have to be known BY THE RIGHT PEOPLE to be threats. The most effective way to do that is by the timing.
Which is how the Soros people threatened the Clintons into not pursuing Obama’s ineligibility. It’s also how the Breitbart death and Rush Limbaugh bomb scare were effective in keeping all the media from reporting the evidence from Arpaio’s presser that very day.
In this case the timing seems very interesting. Toxicology report out but not the coroner’s report, and a poisoning in the coroner’s office precisely when the coroner’s office would be deciding whether to report on the only forensic evidence that would reveal the most probable source of foul play in the Breitbart death: the small skin-prick where a heart attack dart entered the body. That would only be known to the coroner(s) who examined the body, which means they would be vulnerable to death threats.
I wonder if this guy examined Breitbart’s body, or if somebody else in the office did.
We share the same wave length.
I suspect RATS, since arsenic is often used to kill... rats.
They don’t care if they’re obvious.
April 20 (according to this article) - coroner taken to hospital and dies of arsenic poisoning
April 21 - LEAD coroner Craig Harvey (so there were apparently other coroners working on the case as well, though we don’t know who...) releases toxicology report on Andrew Breitbart. See http://www.mediaite.com/online/la-coronor-confirms-andrew-breitbarts-cause-of-death-heart-failure/
Says the final report is supposed to come out “next week”. Says no prescription or illicit drugs were detected (that absence WOULD be the case for a heart attack dart but would NOT be the case if he was being treated for heart disease as reported adamantly by his friends after the first reports of his father-in-law saying he knew of no heart condition.
Also says alcohol level was negligible, which means that it wouldn’t explain his bright red color either. See http://www.google.com/url?q=http://sgtreport.com/2012/04/andrew-breitbarts-autopsy-report-lacks-important-answers-and-raises-more-questions/&sa=U&ei=8-maT43UJ-eq2gWl_pSMDw&ved=0CCoQFjAE&usg=AFQjCNH6B8jDkic89erfBQ63schrv6oNew
Said no “significant trauma” was present (a heart attack dart would leave “no significant trauma”) and no foul play is suspected. (Which is what you’d expect the coroner’s office to report if somebody in their office was killed by arsenic poisoning just the day before your findings were to be released...)
yup that was my first thought too....
One other note. The early report that I saw on the day of Breitbart’s death not only had the father-in-law saying he know of Andrew having no heart problems, but it had the communications person for the coroner’s office saying that Andrew hadn’t been seen by a doctor for over a year. Now the toxicology report says there were no prescription drugs.
Contrast that with the claims by Breitbart’s “close friends” that he had been hospitalized for 2 weeks after a massive heart attack within the last year. I’ve known a lot of people who have had heart attacks, and I can guarantee that if he had a massive heart attack within the past year he would have been seen by a doctor within that time and he would have prescription drugs in his body at all times.
This is now two specific claims from the coroner’s office that refute the public stories being told by Breitbart’s “close friends” - all of which are too scared to address Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s findings which were released to the public on the day Breitbart died and which Breitbart himself applauded Sheriff Joe for just hours before Breitbart fell to the ground dead.
A source who is not supposed to be named on Free Republic has claimed he spoke to some people close to Breitbart who said they know it was an assassination. That would explain their desperate claims that he had had a massive heart attack - even though the coroner’s office has released 2 details which refute that claim.
One of the people who claimed that Andrew had suffered from heart problems was Sean Hannity - the same guy who in response to Andrew’s death said he would thoroughly vet Obama no matter what the cost and scheduled an interview with Mike Zullo of Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse... but at the last minute backed out of that and won’t touch the issue of the forgeries and fraud involving Obama’s BC and draft registration. Like Breitbart’s colleagues won’t touch the issue - claiming that those 2 federal felonies are not important enough to be discussed.
Wow. I just noticed this other detail. Michael Cormier was the photographer for their special response team. He was probably the person who photographed Breitbart’s body. If there was an entry hole for a heart attack dart this guy probably photographed it.
And though my computer has been working fine all day, I am now posting from my daughter’s computer because as I try looking up more info about this and posting it here my computer all of a sudden won’t do squat. Predictable.
Null and void, I’m pinging you just so you know there’s more info here. Your pings are so important. Thanks for doing that. (Now what were the rules? I have to say I’m going to report you to Jim if you ping me? lol)
You are grandfathered in as part of the original cohort.
“Normal” people need to threaten me to get on the list, threatening to sic Jim or any generic mod on me suffices.
No prescription drugs in his system sets off bells and whistles for me. Unless he was on a suicide mission, he would be taking something if he had such serious heart problems. Geeze Louise my father-in-law had to swallow about 15 different pills everyday for his heart.
Ping to this thread - the whole thing.
Looks like the guy who may have photographed Breitbart’s body was killed by arsenic poisoning the day before the coroner released a statement based on Breitbart’s toxicology results.
The toxicology results do not support the claims by friends that he was being treated for heart problems. No prescription drugs were detected. The results ARE consistent, however, with a heart attack dart causing a heart attack. The only way to detect a heart attack dart is by the entry hole for the dart - what would look like a bug bite.
Which would show up in the photos that this poisoned guy probably took.
Whew! That’s a relief. I’ll have to tell my kids I’m one of the originals. lol
They always knew I’m not “normal” (only because I’m exceptional. lol. Yeah right.) and they’ve often asked me what the world was like when it was just me and Adam and Eve. lol
You’ve got the busiest job of anybody here, null and void. Sign of the times, for sure.
one week ago... why the delay in reporting?
it was just a week ago they released that Brietbart died of heart failure
get the ‘official’ statement then clean up any loose ends?
Still doesn’t mean he didn’t know something about AB. He may also serve as a horse’s head.
As if this admin is known for making good choices in their shenanigans, i.e. the fake bc.
If there were photos, you can bet they've long since been misplaced and lost.
And the one who most likely to know about it is dead.
Funny how the ball bounces, huh?
I wonder if the deceased worked on the Breitbart matter.
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.
