It appears that Patrick Cullinane, the well known Common Law campaigner and activist, died in bed or next to it, at his London address, 42 Augustine Road, Harrow Weald, HA3 5NP some time between the evening of Friday 11th November, and the morning of the 12th November, 2016.
The topic was discussed (somewhat haphazardly and ineptly it has to be said) on the following on the evening of Saturday 12th November , 2016 - the same day his body was discovered on the following on-line "Blog Talk Radio" details of wich are given below.

There is still considerable opacity over the exact circumstances but what was known at the time is summarised by a contributor below.
"A call was received from a friend of Patrick Cullinane that he was outside Patrick home, there was no answer, the lights were on, there was mail in the letter box and Police were call in case he may have died. The Police arrived in separate vehicles, a senior officer came with another went inside and left. The other officers were in there for another hour or so.
The area was cordoned off and no-one was allowed in. One of these officers were overheard on the telephone refusing to take instructions from the person on the other side of the phone to pronounce PC dead. “I am not going to pronounce him dead”
"No ambulance arrived on the scene. An ambulance was called by another friend at 2:15pm - they refused to come saying that on their system it stated that the person was dead. How could this be since the friend who was at the scene did not witness any ambulance arrive.
"Another attempt was made to call for an ambulance again at 3pm - it is not known as at 4:15pm whether in fact medical attention has been provided to PC, who was described as “lying next to his bed”
People can and do die suddenly from purely medical causes such as embolism, stroke or heart attack. If this or similar is the cause of Cullinane's demise, it should be revealed at autopsy.
There is nothing sinister necessarily by an ambulance not arriving if the police on scene had reported they were dealing with a corpse. Nor is the fact that the policeman was unable or unwilling to certify death itself which can only be done by a medically qualified person - usually at a hospital unless a doctor is called to the location, that may have happened in this case.
However if time has elapsed from direct GP involvement the death must treated as unexplained and reported to the Coroner. The fact that police taped off the house indicates they were treating the case in this manner. Whether they regarded the circumstances as suspicious has not been so far revealed. There appear to be no main stream press reports so far that would clarify the police position.
Only they and anyone allowed inside will be aware of the actual circumstances, or estimated time of death. It is suggested he lay on the floor next to his bed. Clearly the actual details of the scene are crucial and will indicate whether he had gone to bed and died subsequently or died prior to this. If the prior situation is indicated, the only strange reported feature is that apparently all the lights were still on which sits uneasily with someone who has retired to bed.
Leaving aside Cullinane's actual statements and beliefs, there is little doubt that his death was unexpected and unexplained (as of now). It therefore justifies a cautious approach which hopefully the authorities will follow.
It may be presumed in view of the circumstances, the Coroner will order an autopsy that may or may not provide convincing evidence of a medical cause of death. If there are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death, the Home Office Pathologist would be appointed to do this.
The fact that Cullinane has made a name for himself opposing government, decrying what he claimed was undue influence by Jews and Masons of the legal system and self appointed 'Common Law' representative of people and causes, any suspicious circumstances take on an extra dimension, and need to be weighed dispassionately.
In fact only earlier in the week he had been active in representing Jake Clarke (successfully it has been claimed) in resisting enforced medication and incarceration in the Luton Mental Heath Unit after being 'sectioned' under the mental health acts. This matter is dealt with in greater detail here:
Nor can it escape notice that Cullinane appears to have died on a Saturday, squeezed between the two national events of remembrance on Friday 11th ("11/11/11") and the 13th November, 'Remembrance Sunday' itself, whilst the major story of the Croydon Tram Crash was still being given great coverage as a current tragic event.
Anyone who witnessed anything unusual or distinctive in the neighbourhood in question should certainly notify the police regarding it and also ensure that, anonymosly if necessary, make sure it reaches a public domain.

UPDATE AS OF 17.11.2016
He was due to meet Times reporter Thursday (10.11.16) but did not turn up and no explanation given (apparently). This, if accurate, is a significant and important detail.
Knowing Patrick, even if illness had prevented him from keeping the appointment, he would surely have explained to his contact, the reason or told someone else why he culdn't make it. After all without giving away details, he had made clear he considered this a very important meeting and subject.
The question is, was it so important that he was prevented (by some outside agency) from keeping it?
The last communication from Patrick appears to have been an e-mail to a friend on Wed 9th or Thursday 10th November. (this needs clarifying) This of course would mean that he died some time between Wed/Thursday afternoon and when he was discovered (1 pm?) on Saturday. That's roughly 48 hrs that is unaccounted for.
However this should be treated with caution as telephone calls and e-mails sent by someone else after death, are a well known device to throw investigators 'off the scent'. All that would be required would be taking charge of a device whilst already 'open' or knowing - by whatever means - the access codes.
This bit of information must be 'read' alongside that of another. APD refers to a text from a close friend of Patrick to the effect that his SKYPE was off-line WED evening which worried him because he was never off it. When he didn't keep his 'important' appointment on Thursday 10th at 1.23 pm Antony Badalo and someone called H.... at The Times.(See below)
He continued to be off line thereafter apart from ONE Hour Fiday I EVENING. To some extent this put his mind at rest but it still seemed strange. He said he was, "always on Skype unless asleep or out."
On both counts - missing an important appointment and not being on Skype from Wednesday onwards - IS very suspicious, because it is so out of character, particularly in the light of the subsequent outcome. It needs to be explained.
One explanation could have been that he fell ill or died on Wednesday/Thursday but of course this does not explain the brief on-line Friday evening, or more importantantly, his still wet hair when found.
It is inconceivable that if ill or in pain, he would not have used his phone or computer to call for help. Apparently his sister used his phone to call APD on Sunday afternoon to relay the tragic news. This should carry its call history. What does it reveal?
Apparently the house was taped off for two hours before anyone allowed in and people (presumably Police?) were seen by neighbours removing stuff from home? This has obvious implications and needs to be clarified.
The involvement of police and ambulance has been strange to say the least. Apparently Ealing Police stated they had no record of a deceased man by that name after the police had been on site. They only had a record of a "missing person" with ref. Number quoted, which begs the question who had reported him missing. Police stated “We have no record of this person being dead – only as a missing person.”
An ambulance was called at least twice Sat afternoon, but only arrived Sat night! A doctor was called (GP or Home Office Pathologist?) who presumably certified death. Police remained inside for two hours before allowing relatives inside? They were certainly treating it as 'unexplained' at that stage.
It is not clear in what state of dress (or undress) Patrick was discovered. Secondhand (his sister?) it is said he was lying on the floor on his back with his laft hand over his face and right arm by his side. A rather puzzling feature was the fact that his hair was still wet perhaps suggesting a recent shower? Did the other circumstantial features support this?
Time of death is crucial. This should have been established within established parameters from biological processes. This would have been likely realised from the time the GP appeared on the scene. Do the signs of Rigor Mortis correlate with the wet hair which would suggest fairly recent (8 hrs say) wetting?
For the record this is a chemical process that sets in 2 – 6 hrs after death (depending on environmental conditions) and is progressive leading to total rigidity for up to two days. The suppleness of the body when found is therefore of utmost importance is assessing the actual time of expiry.
Given the fact that he was not discovered until one am this would also suggest he was still up and active at 5 am. So was he getting up from sleeping or was he going to bed? Apparently all the lights were still on when police gained access so we must assume he either hadn't yet gone to bed or was taken ill some time after he had got up whilst it was still dark. This if accurate, is very, very strange.
Nephew arrived before sister and sister used Patrick's phone to ring ….. From this we know Patrick had a mobile phone so the question arises why hadn't he used it himself to call assistance.
The satirical site 'HOAXTEAD' that pours scorn on all and any who might regard the Hampstead children's containing even an element of truth or suggest that the police investigation was less than thorough, has been quick to report on the death and mock those friends and supporters that have expressed shock and concern. (The pages are reproduced below to provide an impression of the tone)
There may be substance in its criticism of those that always automatically jump to the conclusion that a death is suspicious, but undermines its position by taking the equally irrational view that none can be.
