Ranch Owner: Scalia’s Death Was Peaceful

The owner of the Texas ranch where Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead said he died peacefully. “The judge, when I found him Saturday morning, was in complete repose,” John Poindexter, the owner of Cibolo Creek Ranch in Marfa, Texas, told NBC News on Sunday. “He was very peaceful in his—in the bed. He had obviously passed away with no difficulty at all in the middle of the night.” Scalia, who has served as a justice for 29 years, would have been 80 next month. Poindexter said the justice arrived at the ranch on Friday with a friend for a weekend retreat. “He seemed to enjoy himself greatly,” he added.
