Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes after suffering two strokes following the Capitol riots, a medical examiner has ruled.  

The District of Columbia’s chief medical examiner announced the 42-year-old officer’s cause of death on Monday.   

Sicknick died a day after his encounter with rioters during the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol. 

He had returned to his division office that evening and collapsed. Police initially said that he had been ‘injured while physically engaging with protesters’.

By January 7, Sicknick was hospitalized and placed on a ventilator. He died later that night.

Two men had been accused of spraying Sicknick with a chemical irritant during the riot. 

Medical Examiner Francisco J. Diaz, however, found no evidence that Sicknick suffered any adverse reactions to chemical irritants that he was sprayed with by some of the rioters.

Early reports had suggested that Sicknick had been struck over the head by a fire extinguisher during the chaos.

But in the weeks after the attack new information emerged disputing that narrative.

Sicknick’s brother, Ken Sicknick, told ProPublica that the officer texted him on the night of the riots and said he had been ‘pepper-sprayed’ but was in ‘good shape’.

Ken said his brother’s condition rapidly deteriorated over the next 24 hours before he was intubated and treated for a blood clot and a stroke. He died at about 9.30pm on January 7, Ken said.

Sicknick’s mother, Gladys Sicknick, spoke to DailyMail.com last month and said she believes her son suffered a fatal stroke.

‘We think he had a stroke, but we don’t know anything for sure,’ Gladys, 74, insisted.

She said the family has been largely left in the dark about the investigation into Sicknick’s death, adding: ‘We’d love to know what happened.’
