The three Donald Trump fanatics who died due to “medical reasons” during the Capitol riots succumbed to a heart attack, a stroke and being trampled.
Hundreds of the President’s supporters descended on the Washington government building on Wednesday afternoon in protest against Congress officially naming Joe Biden as his successor.
They smashed their way through police barricades and occupied the historical complex for hours, marauding through corridors towards the Senate chamber and raiding offices.
Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, 35, was shot dead by police after allegedly failing to heed calls to back down after gaining access to an entrance among other rioters.
It was later announced three other demonstrators had died, while Capitol Police have since confirmed reports an officer was killed.
Kevin Greeson, of Alabama, had high blood pressure and suffered a heart attack “in the midst of the excitement”, the 55-year-old’s family confirmed.
The dad’s Facebook page contains multiple photos of him posing with two AR-15 rifles and he reportedly regularly posted on website Parler encouraging violence against Democratic supporters.
The American microblogging and social networking service launched in August 2018 and has a significant user base of Trump supporters, conservatives, conspiracy theorists, and right-wing extremists.
Recent comments of Mr Greeson’s include: “Let’s take this f*****g country BACK! Load your guns and take to the s streets.
“Let’s give them a war… Democrats don’t have guns… we do.. bring your stick, I’m bringing my guns.”
Mr Greeson’s son confirmed he died from a heart attack, adding: “We all loved him so much.”
“He was such a great man we all miss you so much. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers,” he wrote on Facebook.
In a separate statement, Mr Greeson’s family said he was non-violent and had attended the protest to show his support for the President.
“Kevin had a history of high blood pressure, and in the midst of the excitement, suffered a heart attack,” they said, before asking for privacy to grieve.
Computer programmer Benjamin Phillips – who founded the website Trumparoo for fans of the President to connect – organised transport for dozens of protesters from Pennsylvania.
The 50-year-old died from a stroke on the Capitol grounds.
The Inquirer reported he described Wednesday as “the first day of the rest of our lives”.
“They should name this year Zero because something will happen,” friends claim he said prior to the riot.
Finally, Roseanne Boyland was likely “trampled in the Rotunda” – her family said, referring to the area below the central dome of the Capitol complex.
The 34-year-old, from Georgia, was among the violent mob who stormed the building before being crushed underfoot.
She was given CPR by Capitol Police at 5pm after collapsing, before being pronounced dead in hospital around an hour later.
Her family told the Daily Mail she had been initially hesitant about attending the protest and planned to remain on the periphery but had been spurred on by Trump’s speech at a rally earlier in the day.
“She just really believed in Trump and that’s it,” they told the newspaper.
“Someone said she was trampled, others said she collapsed… we’re still trying to figure it out,” the relative said.
Ms Boyland’s brother-in-law Justin Cave said Trump “incited a riot that cost four of his biggest fans their lives”, adding the 25th Amendment should be invoked.
The President is yet to directly address any of the deaths as a result of the riot.
He was temporarily banned from Twitter and Facebook after his posts during the chaos were deemed to be inciting violence.
On Thursday evening he then tweeted a video in which he condemned those involved and assured they would be punished.
“The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy,” he said.
“To those who engage in the acts of violence and destruction: you do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law: you will pay.”
