Conspiracy theories circulate over Scalia's death, 'pillow over his head' fuels speculation

NH1 Digital Content Manager -

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died Saturday of "natural causes."

But conspiracy theories began to circulate almost as quickly as the news of his death.

Most of those theories are based on the fact that Scalia was found with a pillow over his head.

According to the Washington Post, it took hours to find a justice of the peace to make the official pronouncement after Scalia was found because he wasn't at a Texas hunting resort's breakfast.

Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara pronounced him dead of natural causes but never actually saw the body.

And Scalia's family made it clear that they didn't want an autopsy.

So what do you think? Is something fishy? Or is this an uproar about nothing?

Let us know in the comments below.
