6th Person Confirmed Dead As a Result Of MAGA Attack On U.S. Capitol

The death toll left by the violent assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 has increased as a pro-Trump woman died from her injuries after being trampled to death by her fellow MAGA rioters during the assault.

Rosanne Boyland, a 34-year-old QAnon adherent and fervent Trump supporter can be seen in multiple videos of the attack just before her death at the U.S. Capitol Complex.

Her death during riots was originally reported as the result of a “medical emergency.” But the footage, first reported by The New York Times, suggests she died after being crushed by the mob.

As reported by The Times: “Though the videos have circulated widely, Ms. Boyland’s presence in them had gone unnoticed until now, and the manner of her death had previously been unclear. The videos show her body on the ground just outside a door on the Capitol’s west side that was the scene of some of the day’s worst violence.

Her clothes and backpack strap in the videos match those she was seen wearing in a picture of her taken earlier that day, and two witnesses, one of whom tried to help her, gave similar accounts of her death

It is unclear from the videos if Ms. Boyland was alive [just after 4:00 p.m. on January 6], but two rioters — one wielding a stick and the other a crutch — launched a new attack on the police at 4:17 p.m., making it virtually impossible for officers to give her aid, if they were able to notice her at all.

Boyland is visible in a video lying on her side in front of the door, her black hooded sweatshirt, arm and face partially visible, as men clash with police above her.”

The Associated Press offered a similar assessment: Boyland, 34, was one of three people who died of medical emergencies when a pro-Trump mob, egged on by the president, stormed the Capitol as Congress was certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. A fourth person was fatally shot by police and an officer was also killed.

Atlanta NBC affiliate WXIA-TV offered the following explanation: “Guns were drawn. A woman was shot and killed by police, and three others died in apparent medical emergencies. A Trump flag hung on the Capitol. The graceful Rotunda reeked of tear gas. Glass shattered.”

Capitol police have not released details about how Boyland, a Kennesaw resident, died.

The Times report is apparently news to Boyland’s family, according to WXIA journalist Paola Suro.

“Rosanne was really passionate about her beliefs like a lot of people,” her brother-in-law Justin Cave told local CBS affiliate WGCL-TV. “I’ve never tried to be a political person, but it’s my own personal belief that the president’s words incited a riot that killed four of his biggest fans,” he added.
