Brian Sicknick is the officer who stayed on the news media coverage for the Capitol Protests. He became the cover face because of his controversial death, and after the incident, his body was given to a medical examiner.
The most interesting fact here is that Sicknick died of natural causes.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who was injured while confronting rioters during the Jan. 6 insurrection, suffered a stroke and died from natural causes, the Washington, D.C., medical examiner’s office ruled Monday, a finding that lessens the chances that anyone will be charged in his death.

The New York Times covered this story.
“Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick had multiple strokes hours after sparring with a pro-Trump mob during the Jan. 6 riot and died of natural causes, Washington’s medical examiner said on Monday.”
“The determination likely complicates the Justice Department’s efforts to prosecute anyone in the death of Mr. Sicknick, 42; two men have been charged with assaulting him by spraying an unknown chemical on him outside the Capitol.”
“But the autopsy found no evidence that Officer Sicknick had an allergic reaction to chemicals nor of any internal or external injuries, the medical examiner, Dr. Francisco J. Diaz, told The Washington Post, which first reported his finding.”
Initially, the New York Times shared that Sicknick died because of “brain injuries he sustained after Trump loyalists who overtook the complex struck him in the head with a fire extinguisher, according to two law enforcement officials.”
Then, on February 12, the New Your Times modified the article, eliminating the errors and misleading information. The date of the ‘’update’’ is one day before President Trump was cleared in the Senate impeachment trial.
“UPDATE: New information has emerged regarding the death of the Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick that questions the initial cause of his death provided by officials close to the Capitol Police.”
As we previously mentioned, the Times updated the article one day prior to Trump’s impeachment acquittal. The report also stealth edited the original article posted on January 8.
“Law enforcement officials initially said Mr. Sicknick was struck with a fire extinguisher, but weeks later, police sources and investigators were at odds over whether he was hit. Medical experts have said he did not die of blunt force trauma, according to one law enforcement official.”
We can conclude that the information the New York Times shared back then was based on invented events. Now, it turns out to be entirely wrong.
These publications still remain to be unpunished for the speculations in their reportage.
