Judge declared it a heart attack without looking at the body, but after talking with Scalia’s doctor. Scalia has already been embalmed.

despite TX state law requiring autopsy, Scalia's already been embalmed if you view the html source code it shows
< title >Scalia to have autopsy in Texas, according to state law | WFAA.com< / title >
That would have been the original Headline or lead of the story when it went into the Content Management system (sorry inside baseball) but the story now says
Scalia's death to be ruled a heart attack
Wiki already states he died of heart attack
"Lujan said that Scalia’s family did not request an autopsy..."
Clear as mud.
Was the decision to not order an autopsy as (required by TX law, Art. 49.04 parts 2 & 6) by the justice of the peace (Cinderela Guevera) made as a result of 'NOT receiving word' from Scalia's family or in confirmation of family's word declining autopsy? Cinderela did speak with Scalia's personal physician who examined him onWed/Thurs. prior, issued an MRI for shoulder injury. Shoulder pain is sometimes related to heart attacks MayoClinic. Would a Dr. not advise a patient to limit travel if questions about his heart condition arise, given the shoulder injury exam (MRI)? Scalia had just returned from an overseas trip to Hong Kong as well. How limited was the MRI? Could it have revealed a pulmonary embolism?
Coincidental to this medical visit,Friday, Feb. 12th, McConnell & co. were in the process of arranging their 10 day recess.
Scalia was to travel to TX ranch with one of his sons - who cancelled at the last minute.
I'd like to know more about the circumstances pulling this son from this trip.
Scalia died alone, unaccompanied (a situation which triggers state req'd autopsy). He was found with a pillow over his head, with his bed clothes un-rumpled. Curious characterization which is bound to trigger questions.
A resident of Maclean, VA, Scalia's body could not be transported back to VA unless he was first embalmed as required by TX state law.
Why is it, the law requiring embalming prior to transport was followed, yet the law requiring autopsy under these circumstances, as reported initially was not...especially given no qualified physician/medical personnel was on site to determine exact cause of Scalia's death?
One of two justices-of-the-peace determined over the phone, without visually examining the deceased, cause of death as 'heart attack'.
A second justice-of-the-peace states she would have issued order for autopsy.
Given the political hot potato of these circumstances - one would expect every i to be dotted and every t to be crossed when issuing a legal death certificate. Instead, so many coincidences raise endless questions and a run on tin foil. Ugh! Banana republic, here we come!
