A supporter of President Donald Trump who was arrested for participating in the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was found dead in Georgia, authorities said.
Fifty-three-year-old Christopher Stanton Georgia died at his home on Saturday, local news station 11Alive reported. Georgia’s wife called 9-11 and told authorities that there was “blood everywhere.” While Georgia’s cause of death is still unknown, officers removed two semi-automatic SKS rifles from the home, according to documents obtained by The Daily Mail.
Georgia was arrested and charged with attempting to “enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police,” according to the report.
“At around 7:15pm last Wednesday, on the night of the riots, Georgia was reportedly among a group outside in violation of the District’s 6pm curfew that had been put in place earlier that day to stem the chaos wreaked by the pro-Trump mob,” the report says.
“When officers gave the group several warnings to disperse, Georgia and his group reportedly refused, according to the documents. They were then placed under arrest as a result.”
