Almost three months to the day since the January 6th Capitol riots, the medical examiner released the causes of death for the four people who died at some point during the melee.
According to Washington, D.C. Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Francisco J. Diaz, Kevin Greeson, 55, and Benjamin Phillips, 50, died from natural causes (a heart attack). Ashli Babbitt, 35, died from a gunshot wound to her left shoulder. Roseanne Boyland, 34, died from a drug overdose:

But not yet for Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick

The cause of death for Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died the following night, is still under investigation.
It should be noted that in the case of Roseanne Boyland’s death, the medical examiner’s findings were very much at odds with prior New York Times reporting on how she died. Instead of waiting and basing their report on the medical examiner’s official results, they went off of video footage they had reviewed. Here’s what they reported less than two weeks after the riots:
Rosanne Boyland, a 34-year-old Trump supporter from Georgia who died during the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, appears to have been killed in a crush of fellow rioters during their attempt to fight through a police line, according to videos reviewed by The Times.
Though the videos have circulated widely, Ms. Boyland’s presence in them had gone unnoticed until now, and the manner of her death had previously been unclear. The videos show her body on the ground just outside a door on the Capitol’s west side that was the scene of some of the day’s worst violence.
[…]In the chaos, two men spotted Ms. Boyland on the ground and dragged her away from the door.
The men laid Ms. Boyland out on the steps and attempted to resuscitate her. At least two individuals can be seen on video providing CPR. At the top of the steps, another man, wearing a purple jacket, can be seen apparently negotiating with the police so that the rioters can get Ms. Boyland assistance.
Considering how badly they messed up reporting on Ms. Boyland’s death as well as that of Officer Sicknick, questions are rightly being raised as to just what other reporting the New York Times has gotten wrong about the Capitol riots:
The New York Times reported Boyland was "killed in a crush of fellow rioters during their attempt to fight through a police line, according to videos reviewed by The Times.”
She actually died of an accidental drug overdose. Is there a single true media narrative about Jan 6? https://t.co/NjC4f811zg

Also, it’s just amazing that we’re this far out from when the riots happened and Officer Sicknick’s family still doesn’t have the answers they’ve been searching for.
It’s really hard to find the right cause of death after you’ve authorized the body to be released to the family and then CREMATED.
You can’t go back and redo any tests.
All you’ve got are the initial test results to try to message into fitting your narrative…..and they don’t.
According to initial results the autopsy found he died from a stroke….not a head would at all.
his ashes were given to the family not the body. recall that the real booth did not kill Lincoln but a southern soldier hired by the US government. Booth’s mother was not allowed to see the body of her alleged son. the alleged body of Booth was cremated within four(4) hours of his capture…go figure that one. research has sown that the real Boot died between 1915-1917
What are you going to do when you declared that Officer Sicknick was murdered by a Trump supporter wielding a fire extinguisher and all the evidence proves he wasn’t? You’ve already cremated the body to hide the fact he wasn’t bludgeoned to death; how will you “examine” it further?
They are simply loathe to confirm Sicknick, whose death the left exploited remorselessly, simply died of natural causes. Unless his death can be exploited, he’ worthless to them.
