Sicknick, who passed within a few hours after the Capitol incident, had two strokes at the base of his brain stem brought on by a blood clot, according to an autopsy. The top medical examiner in Washington has found that U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick passed away naturally on January 7, one day after the incident, following two strokes.
Sicknick, 42, claimed that a blood clot was to blame for the strokes at the base of the brain stem, according to the autopsy, according to Chief Medical Examiner Francisco Diaz. The official conclusion said that the death was “natural” and was brought on by “acute brainstem and cerebellar infarcts related to acute basilar artery thrombosis.”
The autopsy, according to Diaz, showed no proof that Sicknick had an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, as reported by The Washington Post. He also said there was no proof of any internal or exterior injuries. His condition was affected by everything that happened, Diaz told the publication.
According to Capitol Police, Sicknick went to his office following the riot and fell before passing away at a hospital eight hours later.
In light of the results, it will be challenging to accuse any rioters of causing Sicknick’s death, and no such charges have been brought. Midway through March, George Tanios of West Virginia and Julian Khater of Pennsylvania were detained on charges that they had used bear spray to hurt Sicknick.
A memorial service was held at the Capitol to honor Sicknick, and he was laid there. According to his family, Brian is a hero, and that is what we want people to remember.
Capitol Police issued a statement in which they acknowledged the conclusions. However, this does not alter the reality that Officer Brian Sicknick died while bravely protecting the Capitol and Congress while performing his duty.
“The Department continues to mourn the loss of our beloved colleague. The attack on our officers, including Brian, was an attack on our democracy,” the statement said.

Officer Brian Sicknick died of two strokes on January 6
According to the D.C. Medical Examiner, Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick passed away naturally on January 6 after suffering two strokes.
The D.C. Medical Examiner’s Office reportedly issued a ruling on Monday finding that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes after suffering two strokes the day after the January 6 siege, which may shed light on why prosecutors have not yet filed homicide charges against alleged rioters.
A little over a month after George Tanios and Julian Khater, two members of the pro-Trump mob, were initially accused of assaulting Sicknick by spraying him in the face with chemical irritants, the Washington Post was the first to report on the just-made public ruling. The prosecution never implicated the bear spray they reportedly employed in Sicknick’s demise.
The Post was informed by D.C. Medical Examiner Francisco J. Diaz noted no internal or exterior damage during the autopsy, refuting claims that Sicknick had an allergic response to the spray.
Sicknick’s involvement with the Capitol gang as one of the policemen, according to Diaz, “had a role in his health,” though.
The autopsy report’s remark from his office furthers the impression that there is a disconnect.
The statement states, “On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, an unprecedented civil rebellion occurred at the United States Capitol and resulted in the deaths of five people.” The cause and method of death for four of those people were determined by the District of Columbia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Francisco J. Diaz, MD, FACP, on April 7. The cause and way of death for the fifth person were announced today.
The study’s publication brings attention to how perceptions of the officer’s death have changed since the day after the riot. Early accounts said that Sicknick died after being struck by a fire extinguisher; however, investigators later expressed to the New York Times their suspicions that a chemical irritant, such as bear spray, may have been to blame. Some people were surprised that, while alleging assault with the chemical spray, prosecutors refrained from holding Tanios and Khater accountable for Sicknick’s death due to this rumor.
According to court documents, Khater allegedly said to Tanios, “Give me that bear feces.”
According to the publicly available chronology of events, Sicknick was sprayed at about 2:20 p.m. Eastern Time.
Sicknick passed out in front of the Capitol around 10 p.m. on January 6 and was later declared dead at a nearby hospital at 9:30 p.m. on January 7.

Magistrate Judge Michael John Aloi ignored the issue and made generic statements about the suspect’s alleged attack on the Capitol when defending Tanios’ pre-trial incarceration.
Aloi stated in March, “It is hard for me to look at this as anything other than an assault on this nation’s heart,”
On February 2, Congress paid tribute to the officer by having him lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.
