34-year-old Wall Street Journal editorial writer Joseph Rago was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on July 20.
As of yet, I have been unable to recover any records of an autopsy report, which was reported to be taking place.
Under normal circumstances, this might not be an issue.
Police have said they do not suspect foul play and that when they found him with “no obvious signs of trauma and emergency responders declared him dead at the scene.”
“It is with a heavy heart that we confirm the death of Joseph Rago, a splendid journalist and beloved friend,” said Paul Gigot, the editor of the Journal’s editorial page, in a statement. “Joe and his family are in our thoughts and prayers, and we will be celebrating his work in Saturday’s paper.”

Indeed, he was a gifted writer. Check out some samples of some of his wit and wisdom.
So, there were no obvious signs of trauma, but yet, there was also no determined cause of death. Thus, the reason for the request for an autopsy.
Though Rago’s last editorial criticized Republicans’ failure to repeal Obamacare, he was also allegedly investigating Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the purchase of Russian drug company Veropharm by Abbott Labs in 2014, when sanctions against Russia over the Ukranian crisis would have prevented such sales.
The Goldwater reports:
According to those in his Wall Street Journal Office, Rago had reached out to the Russia Consulate General’s Office in New York City who then requested an interview on July 20th with consular officials regarding an upcoming article he was preparing on Hillary Clinton and her potential ties to Russia.
However, Rago didn’t manage to make it to the meeting and was later discovered deceased in his apartment with the cause of death being strangely called “unknown causes” just hours prior to the Russian Consular General meeting occurring.
The goal of the meeting would have been investigating Hillary Clinton’s links to the 2014 sale of Veropharm, which is one of Russia’s largest medical companies, to the American pharmaceutical titan Abbott Laboratories.
Calls to the Consulate-General of Russia in New York City to confirm this were unreturned as of the time of this writing.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Clinton topped the field of candidates who received donations from the drug industry.
Clinton accepted $164,315 in the first six months of the campaign from drug companies, far more than the rest of the 2016 field, according to an analysis by Stat News.
