John Paul I Conspiracy Theories (Enrique Torner, USA, 07/21/19 4:25 am)

I want to thank Dr Rodolfo Neirotti (20 July) for his response to one of my questions regarding the death of Pope John Paul I.

I have encountered lots of reluctance by physicians to discuss any case that ended in death or serious illness or injury. They also try to avoid black and white statements, maybe for fear of legal, social, and financial repercussions. However, as John, our dear and wise editor, put it, this is a theoretical situation, in a way. John asked about Dr. Buzzonetti, the physician who attended Luciani after his death: Buzzonetti passed away on January 21, 2017, so there's no fear of him coming back to haunt anybody. However, many people--especially Catholics--are still afraid or apprehensive of saying or doing something that might offend the powerful Holy See.

I am curious to find out if Dr. Pitlick [Paul is next in the queue--JE] will be able/willing to make the categorical statement I would expect/hope: there is no way to affirm somebody has died of a heart attack without an autopsy. I also hope Dr. Pitlick or somebody else can answer my other previous questions. An additional piece of information: Dr. Buzzonetti was not Luciani's personal physician. The pope's personal physician was Dr. Giuseppe Da Ros, who had been his doctor for many years, going to back to his time in Venice, where John Paul I had been the patriarch. Dr. Da Ros had personally called Luciani the night before his death, and nothing of concern was mentioned in their conversation.

I am feeling tempted to get ahead of myself and discuss the different theories, but I don't want to repeat myself. However, I'll venture out and mention the common perception/opinion that Luciani was poisoned, maybe with an overdose of a medication. That's why I had included a question regarding the ingestion of Digitalis and Gratusminal in my previous post.

Again, I thank Dr. Neirotti for his kind reply.

JE comments:  Paul Pitlick has also responded to Enrique's post.  As you so often hear me say, stay tuned.

Enrique, a quick question:  do you believe it will ever be possible to confirm or convincingly deny the conspiracy theories surrounding JP I's death?  An exhumation will probably never occur, but what about a deathbed confession from someone in the pope's inner circle?

Also, would an exhumation 41 years after the fact be able to prove a poisoning?
