ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The body of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was taken on Sunday (February 14) in a silver-colored hearse from a funeral home in El Paso, Texas, local media reported. Scalia's body was transported in a motorcade from the funeral home where it was carried to Atlantic Aviation airport. The conservative justice was found dead at the Cibolo Creek Ranch resort in west Texas on Saturday (February 13). Scalia, 79, died of natural causes, according to Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara, who went to the ranch and examined the body. Scalia received last rites from a Catholic priest at the Texas ranch, Elizabeth O'Hara, a spokeswoman for the Diocese of El Paso, said on Saturday. Scalia's death sets up a major political showdown between President Barack Obama and the Republican-controlled Senate over who will replace him just months before a presidential election.
