DAILY BEASTÂ – Los Angeles police wonâ€™t know for a few more weeks why Michael A. Cormier, a longtime county coronerâ€™s autopsy technician and photographer, died on April 20. But they do know it had nothing do with the March 1 death of conservative blogger Andrew Breitbartâ€”no matter what you read elsewhere.
Cormierâ€™s colleagues at the coronerâ€™s office are waiting for the results of toxicology tests after an initial exam at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, coupled with comments made by Cormier himself, led doctors to believe the 61-year-old North Hollywood man could have ingested poison.
