Hear the 911 Call Made by the Ranch Owner Where Justice Scalia Died
The 911 call from the Texas ranch where Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead has been released.
The ranch owner, John Poindexter, did not want to identify Scalia over the phone. He reportedly told the 911 operator that the name was “big and it's overwhelming to deal with.”
He calmly asked the 911 operator: “Can you give me the United States Marshals office number? The United States Marshals in West Texas.”
Justice Scalia was found dead in his bed in a hotel suite at the 30,000-acre Cibolo Creek Ranch in West Texas on Saturday.
Scalia’s son, Gene, spoke to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly about his family's loss on Tuesday night’s show.
“What has really struck my family and me and meant so much is all of the wonderful things that have been said about my father over the last few days,” he said.
Conspiracy theorists had a field day when the ranch owner claimed he found the justice with a pillow over his head.
But he has since clarified what he saw. He says he found the pillow above Scalia’s head, not over his face.
The 79-year-old will be laid to rest on Saturday in Washington. The White House announced that President Obama will not attend the funeral.
