Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has died at the age of 79. That news is coming out of Texas.

Early word is that the Justice died of natural causes at the age of 79. The Supreme Judge died in his sleep.  He failed to appear for breakfast on a Texas ranch and was found dead in his room. He was in West Texas with friends on a hunting trip.

He was appointed by President Regan in 1986. He was the father of nine children. The Governor of Texas released this statement earlier this afternoon-

“Judge Antonin Scalia was a man of God, a patriot and an unwavering defender of the written Constitution,” said Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott. “He was the solid rock who turned away so many attempts to depart from and distort the constitution.”
