PICTURED: Two MAGA fanatics who died ‘from medical reasons’ during mob attack on the Capitol

Roseanne Boyland, 34, died. Her family told DailyMail.com she was ‘trampled in the rotunda’

The three Trump fanatics who died during Wednesday’s mob attack on the Capitol died from a heart attack, a stroke and being trampled in the rotunda. 

Roseanne Boyland, 34, from Georgia, Kevin Greeson, 55, from Alabama and Benjamin Phillips, 50, from Pennsylvania, all died on Wednesday. 

Phillips, a computer programmer who traveled to DC with dozens of other Trump fans from Pennsylvania, suffered a stroke. 

Greeson, who had high blood pressure, suffered a heart attack ‘in the midst of the excitement’, his family said. 

Roseanne was ‘trampled in the Rotunda’, her family told DailyMail.com on Thursday after police she had been potentially ‘crushed’ in the mob.   

Capitol Police were seen performing CPR on her at 5pm after she collapsed. She was pronounced dead in the hospital a little before 6pm.  

It’s unclear if the two men were among the violent mob who stormed the building, like she was. 

Roseanne’s family in Georgia told DailyMail.com on Thursday that it was the first Trump event she ever attended. She’d been hesitant to go and her relatives say they tried to dissuade her.

She traveled to DC on Tuesday night and had planned to ‘hang back’ but was emboldened by Trump’s speech, her relatives said. 

‘She just really just believed in Trump and that’s it. 

‘This was her first one. She wasn’t even supposed to go… we all didn’t want her to go. She was hanging back and then after the speech yesterday…

‘They’re still working on [the details]. Someone said she was trampled, others said she collapsed…. we’re still trying to figure it out,’ the relative said. 

 She just really just believed in Trump…it cost her her life

Her brother-in-law, Justin Cave, said the rally cost her her life. 

He blames Trump for her death. 

‘Roseanne, like a lot of people there, was really passionate about her beliefs as was her right. 

‘I personally believe that the President incited a riot that cost four of his biggest fans their lives. One of them happened to be my sister. 

‘I personally believe we should invoke the 25th amendment.’ 

In a statement that he read aloud, he said: ‘Our family is devastated by the loss of Roseanne. She was a wonderful sister, daughter and aunt. Anyone who knew her knows how compassionate she was.

‘She would always put others before herself. As we watched these awful events unfold, we hoped that Roseanne was not among the crowd.

‘Tragically, she was and it cost her her life,’ he said. 

Another woman – 35-year-old air force veteran Ashli Babbitt – was shot dead by Capitol police. 

Phillips was a computer programmer.

According to The Inquirer, he described the day as ‘the first day of the rest of our lives’. 

‘They should name this year Zero because something will happen,’ his friends claim he said before the riot got underway. 

Phillips founded the website Trumparoo, where Trump supporters can speak to each other, and organized transport for dozens of people to get to DC from Pennsylvania on Wednesday. 

It’s unclear at what point in the day he suffered his heart attack, or if he was married or had children.

Greeson’s son announced his death on Facebook. 

‘My dad had a heart attack yesterday and sadly passed away. 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 said. 

Social media photographs show Greeson posing proudly with two AR-15 rifles. 

He regularly posted on the website Parler where he encouraged violence against Democrats.  

Among recent comments was: ‘Let’s take this f*****g country BACK! Load your guns and take to the s streets. 

Phillips friends said that on the drive to DC, he was excited and described the day as 'the first day of the rest of our lives'.

He also tweeted that hydroxychloroquine was a known cure for COVID – which has not been proven.  

His family however say he was not violent and was only there to show his support for Trump.  

‘Kevin had a history of high blood pressure, and in the midst of the excitement, suffered a heart attack. 

‘Our family is devastated. We are thankful for all of the thoughts and prayers and appreciate privacy at this time as we grieve,’ they said. 

President Trump has said nothing of their deaths himself. 

In a brief statement in the White House briefing room, his press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany said: ‘Those who violently besieged our capitol are the opposite of everything this administration stands for.’ 

She walked away without taking any questions from the press. Trump’s Twitter and Facebook accounts have been locked.
