On Saturday, news broke that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead in his room at a Texas ranch where he was spending the weekend with a friend from Washington, D.C.
A judge declared Scalia dead over the phone at 1:52 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Law enforcement officials said there was “absolutely” no sign of foul play and Scalia’s remains were embalmed early Sunday morning to comply with Texas law.
But some say there’s something sinister going on, and are now claiming Scalia was possibly murdered in order to ensure a liberal majority on the Supreme Court.

Some on Twitter also suspect foul play:
I know Scalia was 79 but I hope an autopsy is done to make sure Obama didn't have him killed.

CNN reported that Scalia died in his sleep. “A government official said Scalia went to bed Friday night and told friends he wasn’t feeling well. Saturday morning, he didn’t get up for breakfast. And the group he was with for a hunting trip left without him. Someone at the ranch went in to check on him and found him unresponsive,” CNN said.
Democrats are now demanding that Scalia’s replacement be named and confirmed immediately, but Republicans say they will wait until after the election to confirm anyone.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has already said he will filibuster any nomination.
Cruz and others have said that America is just one Supreme Court Justice away from losing the right of free speech and the right to keep and bear arms.
