The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has released the official coroner’s report, indicating Andrew Brietbart died from heart failure. This confirms the speculation by one of Breitbart’s friends and “Big” colleagues who, while appearing on Hannity in the days following Andrew’s death, said that Breitbart probably died from a massive heart attack. In that same segment, this man (it may have been Steve Bannon, I can’t recall) revealed that Breitbart had a heart condition which had not been disclosed to the public but for which he had previously received in-patient treatment.
Conspiracy theories popped up almost immediately, including on this very site, about the cause of Andrew’s death. One person linked a report that said Breitbart was bright red or pink in color as he lay on the ground, which could possibly have been consistent with cyanide poisoning. With no eyewitness to his actual collapse, this is of course only speculation (he probably would have had a seizure prior to or during his collapse).
While I always at least entertain conspiracy theories, it would be difficult to believe that Breitbart was the victim of a political assassination and subsequent cover-up by the LA County Coroner’s office. That’s an awful lot of potential loose ends. Given the fact that Breitbart’s friend admitted he had a heart condition which was severe enough to require in-patient treatment, the most likely explanation is that he really did die from heart failure.
But what say you?
