  •  There was no autopsy, AFAIK. (1+ / 0-)

    The Vatican has its own laws, and presumably complied with them, but it fueled suspicion of such an unexpected death.

    •  Still, (0+ / 0-)

      absence of evidence.

      •  An absence resulting from an unforced decision (1+ / 0-)

        Made by those who would be the obvious suspects.

        Most managers in that situation, if they had both sense and nothing to hide, would've made sure to have a competent determination of cause of death.

        •  But the Vatican has a longstanding protocol. (1+ / 0-)

          That protocol is to not autopsy the deceased pontiff.

          That they didn't break protocol is not evidence of foul play.

            It would've been a good time to break it, but I'll lower my official suspicion level on this to a slow simmer.  thanks for the info!
