The world was stunned on Saturday when Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia suddenly died while staying at a ranch in Texas. Though authorities were quick to say that Scalia died of natural causes, conspiracy theories have run wild claiming that he was in fact murdered.
Now, the Scalia family have broken their silence to reveal how they believe the legendary judge died.
“Our family just has no doubt that he was taken from us by natural causes,” Eugene Scalia, 52, said on the Laura Ingraham radio show on Wednesday. “We accept that. We’re praying for him. We ask others to accept that and pray for him.”
According to Western Journalism, Eugene went on to say that he can understand why people are having a hard time Scalia died naturally.
“My father, he was like a force of nature,” he said. “He seemed sort of a permanent institution. But he’d have been the first to tell you — the first — that, you know, we’re from dust, we return to dust. Your life can be taken from you at any instant. He was a month shy of 80 years old. He led this incredibly full and active life. But I knew, and he knew, that he was in a place in life where he could be taken from this world at any time, and that’s what happened last week.”
Eugene, who works as an attorney, was one of Scalia’s nine children he had with his wife of 55 years, Maureen.
“Everybody loses their dad at some point,” the oldest son observed. “And I feel blessed that it’s not just the family who feels that he was great, but that there are millions of people who feel that and so many, like you, who are honoring it.”
According to Conservative Tribune, Rush Limbaugh announced on Wednesday that the Scalia family has asked for people to put the conspiracy theories to rest and accept that Scalia died of natural causes.
