Brian Sicknick Cause of Death
|Full Name||Brian David Sicknick|
|Cause Of Death||Natural Cause|
An Office of Chief Medical Examiner determined that the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was natural, as his condition had been affected by a stroke, and that there was no evidence to suggest a criminal motive.
Sicknick had been injured during the Jan. 6 riot and returned to work on Jan. 7, but he had a stroke shortly before he died. There was no indication that Sicknick had preexisting conditions, but he died of “natural causes,” the governing body concluded.
In a press release, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner stated that officer Brian Sicknick’s cause of death was a stroke and acute basilar artery thrombosis. This ruling will lessen the possibility of criminal charges against the officer, as the cause of death will be determined by the autopsy.
The cause of death was not immediately clear, and the medical examiner’s office will issue a revised autopsy report at a later date.
Sicknick died of natural causes. According to a report by the Chief Medical Examiner, Sicknick suffered two strokes, which were caused by a blood clot. The autopsy will reveal if any chemical irritants or external injuries were involved in Sicknick’s death. Until now, no charges have been filed.
The investigation continues. And while the chief medical examiner has issued his final report, the public remains uncertain.
