The woman who was believed to have been trampled to death during the January 6th domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol actually died of an “acute amphetamine intoxication” according to autopsy reports, the Daily Beast reports.
Roseanne Boyland, a 34-year-old Georgian who was seen on video collapsing as the insurrectionists pushed toward the doors of the Capitol, was believed to have been trampled under the feet of the attackers. She was taken from the crowd, where people were seen giving her CPR; she was later carried into the Capitol where Capitol Police and DC Metro Police continued life-saving efforts while an ambulance was called. She was pronounced dead at a hospital later in the day.
The DC Medical Examiner’s office also released the cause of death of the three other civilians who died in the attack. Ashli Babbitt, 35, died from a gunshot to the left shoulder after trying to climb through a broken window in a door leading to the House chamber. Kevin Greeson, 55, and Benjamin Phillips, 50, both died naturally of hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
The cause of death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick is still pending.
