This story has gotten so ridiculous now!
I think he's probably retired on an island somewhere and will live out the rest of his days there out of site and out of the public's mind while others have a field d day with all these BS conspiracy theories going around.
Or he simply up and died plain and simple. People just up and die now and then you know. Geez!

Obvious ritual sacrifice is obvious.
What's the significance in the date he died if there is any?
Forget not, in your speed, Antonius,
To touch Calpurnia; for our elders say,
The barren touched in this holy chase,
Shake off their sterile curse.

Wow, many thanks indeed!
That means a lot coming from you and to be numbered among those you mention only adds to the gravitas of the compliment.
I'd like to add dianajune, texasgirl, IAMTAT, and queenofswords to your list of those deserving of accolades as well.
I was just going through that thread to find who the first person to post regarding Poindexter being in the Order of St. Hubertus, and it just so happens to have been me in this post, which strangely enough was quoting the Washington Post. They had what they needed all along, but did nothing with it nor asked any of the questions we did; we just took it and ran with it in typical ATS style.
Lol, as of this moment that post has no stars and it's the one that set us off on the rabbit trail of secret societies and thence to the article referenced in your OP.
Indigo5's work tracking down the information through flight logs and tax records was superb; though I have to pat myself on the shoulder (which I don't normally do) for suggesting looking through flight logs in this post.

You forgot to mention HOW you made the connection between Poindexter and the secret society: His NECKTIE. (It has a symbol of a deer with a star above it!)

Also...For those who want a little insight into Scalia's views around religion and the law, this is a fascinating read...
The talk he gave to a meeting of the Order of St. Malta..
Other research not yet done...Scalia's financial disclosure forms. (note, these are voluntary in the Justices opinion, so while they fill them out, there is a separation of powers thing at play...meaning they do it by choice, not legal obligation...and if they failed to be honest, their is no mechanism for consequence)
2014...Scalia lists reimbursements for travel etc.
For example 2007 shows reimbursed expenses from the Order of Malta
There is this also..
reimbursement from Edmund Enders Island...Society of St. Edmund?
all his financial disclosures here..I haven't gone through them all
When Justice Scalia died two weeks ago, he was staying, again for free, at a West Texas hunting lodge owned by a businessman whose company had recently had a matter before the Supreme Court.
Scalia Took Dozens of Trips Funded by Private Sponsors
Mr. Poindexter is the owner of J. B. Poindexter & Co., a manufacturing firm based in Houston with more than 4,000 employees. One of his companies, the Mic Group, was a defendant in an age discrimination lawsuit filed by a former employee who unsuccessfully petitioned the Supreme Court for a review last year.
Mr. Poindexter, according to a former general manager at the ranch, is also a leader in a group known as the International Order of St. Hubertus, a worldwide organization of hunters, as, apparently, were several other guests during Justice Scalia’s visit. The Washington Post first reported the guests’ ties to the hunting group.
Mr. Gillers and other legal experts said they saw nothing wrong with Mr. Scalia’s accepting a free room at Mr. Poindexter’s lodge. While the Ethics in Government Act, adopted after Watergate, requires high-level federal employees, including judges, to fill out disclosure reports for reimbursements worth more than $335, the visit to the ranch might not have required a formal disclosure, because accommodations provided by a private individual are exempt under current rules.
