Breitbart & Michael Cormier (Death still remains an open case)


Michael Cormier was one of the technicians at the LA County Coroner’s office who oversaw the Breitbart autopsy.  He passed away on April 20th, 2012 ( the same day that Andrew Breitbart’s cause of death was announced) under mysterious circumstances, he was only 61.  Breitbart (43) was a fiery conservative journalist who fell ill after leaving a restaurant in Brentwood, California, resulting in a “heart attack” as he walked across the street.  Before his death, he claimed to have footage of Obama in his college years, associating with unsavory characters tied into the radical realm of politics during that time.  Conspiracy theories have recently tied the Pizza-Gate scandal to a tweet Breitbart wrote in 2011.



Michael Cormier drove to a nearby hospital complaining of chest/stomach issues.  The doctors sent him home & scheduled an appointment with his personal physician. Two days later he was dead.  A toxicology screen showed a significant amount of arsenic, the LAPD took the information but didn’t run with it.  Michael’s residence was searched for chemicals or poisons that could be tied into the cause of death.  What was found?

On the Youtube page of Michael’s brother, Ed, you can witness Michael enjoying & loving the world, unknown to the circumstances that would soon connect him to Andrew Breitbart.  What are the updates on the case?  Is it at a stall?  And if so, why?  Did he come in contact with the same substance that Breitbart might have been fell victim to?

This is the latest update of the case I could come across.  A user by the name of “Linda” inquired about the case on Ed Cormier’s Youtube account.

“Thank you, Linda. My brothers’ death still remains an open case. Everyone I know that has begun to look into his case quickly backs off. Including a lawyer who offered to look into the case and review the facts to an x FBI from LA. I believe they backed off because of fear… The Lawyer looking into it made the statement that ” this goes deeper than anyone realizes”…It is very suspicious Linda…You would be amazed at what has taken place with in LAPD North Hollywood division as well as the LA County Coroners office.Our family is looking for someone we can trust to help us determine what happened to our dear brother..”

The very organization (LAPD) that is paid to discover evidence can’t pinpoint more information on the Michael Cormier case other than an “arsenic poisoning” & the same office that Michael once worked for is hush-hush on any other details.  A lawyer & ex-FBI agent hired by the Cormier family have come up empty handed… citing that the investigation goes “deeper than anyone realizes”.  The LAPD debunked theories related with the connection of Cormier & Breitbart — providing: “Cormier wasn’t even in the same room as Breitbart.”

With the L.A. Coroners office short-staffed & on financial restraints…  I do not believe Cormier was absent during the autopsy of Andrew Breitbart.  He examined it & took notes on what he saw.  I guess Cormier & his open-minded personality raised a few questions regarding the cause of death.

Here’s an article from this year regarding how the backlog has continued into 2016.  There’s currently around 190 employees that work at the morgue in many different capacities.

If you watch any of the videos Cormier appears in online (including documentaries or a local TV crash scene video), you’ll see he is one of the main technicians handling the bodies.  Why would he have nothing to do with one of the biggest cases to hit the LA Coroner’s office in years?
