U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead Saturday morning at a ranch in West Texas, the Associated Press reports. He was 79.

Scalia appears to have died in his sleep of natural causes at the luxury ranch, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, which confirmed his death, he was at the private residence in the Big Bend area on Friday. He went to bed that evening and did not appear for breakfast Saturday morning. He was found unresponsive.

He had told friends he did not feel well before going to bed, according to CNN.

Scalia had chronic health issues, according to the Washington Post. His family and local officials declined to have an autopsy performed because there were no signs of foul play, the Post reports.

The confusion and questions surrounding his death have led to several conspiracy theories.

Funeral and memorial plans have not been announced.

Scalia is survived by his wife, nine children and several grandchildren. Read more about his wife, Maureen McCarthy Scalia, at the link below:

Quail are delicious, 10X better than chicken. I`ve been raising and eating them for years, No steroids, no antibiotics, all natural. If everyone who disagrees with Deborah is an asshole she is probably an angry lonely bitch.

The Onazi regime will stop at nothing, someday all will come to light, until then The Lord is on the throne and evil will lose in the end.

What are you trying to say? And, have some respect. Do not call a deceased patriot names. You have zero clue on how terribly Obama has destroyed our nation.

Think the wealthy will get taxed more? Ask France what happened when they tried. The top 1% make 20% of the AGI but pay 40% of the federal income taxes.

Have you no respect for the dead and their families? As much as I can’t stand Obama, I would not make such a comment if he died. You should pay him and his family the respect they deserve. Like him or not, he was a man dedicated to his Country and his high office. Why is it Libs don’t believe anyone should have an opinion if it doesn’t mirror their own and why is their only retort infantile curse words and slurs? I guess it just shows their lack of intellect, manners, and class.
