During her eulogy to her deceased sister, Silk (aka Rochelle Richardson) spoke about local police.
Quote:
Silk also used the service to threaten to file a complaint against local police over their handling of her sister’s death, though she gave few details. “To the Hoke County Sheriff’s department, you have a rotten apple in the bunch,” Silk said. “While the body is still warm on the kitchen floor, you don’t overstep the next of kin… then try and barge into my home, that I pay the bills for, illegally, with no warrant, to retrieve my sister’s dead body. You don’t push yourself onto someone then say ‘don’t touch me,’” she continued. Silk—who has long called for “handcuffs” to be removed from police—then pledged to file a “complaint” against the local North Carolina police department “ASAP”—adding, “just because you are dressed in blue doesn’t mean you get to abuse the power you think you have.” The Hoke County Sheriff’s office did not return The Daily Beast’s request for comment on Saturday evening.

Uh, she objected to cops getting to the body? That's a bit suspicious, isn't it? Is this going to turn out to have been sororicide?

I'll take that dare: Silk, you're an idiot conspiracy theorist too stupid to know you're stupid.
They already have the answer to that, Silk, sweetheart: COVID is a disease that kills quickly. Millions of people died quickly due to COVID. That evidence is overwhelming. But if you don't want to accept that then...bag of squirrels it is, I guess.

Already happened. It's called "MAGA", and Donny is the black hole causing it.

When Rochelle "Silk" Richardson launched into her anti-police rant at her sister's funeral-
Quote:
"Try and barge into my home, that I pay the bills for, illegally, with no warrant...just because you are dressed in blue doesn’t mean you get to abuse the power you think you have.”
I was surprised the crowd at the service (local news say it was about 150 people) didn't begin loudly booing her.

Diamond of pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk dies

Yeah. A body is pretty much the trump card as far as probable cause goes.

An article I read, I can't remember from where, said that she died of heart disease and no autopsy was done. She said she couldn't breathe and collapsed, she had CPR performed on her until the medics showed up but it was too late. I didn't read anything about COVID, sounds like it was just straight up heart disease.

I'm sure now the CTs that she secretly took the vaccine, etc. will start popping up.

Maybe. It depends on the definition of just straight up heart disease:
MAGA Supporter Diamond, Of Diamond And Silk, Has Been Hospitalized Due To COVID (MSN, Nov 30, 2022)
COVID-19 patients retain elevated risk of death for at least 18 months after infection (European Society of Cardiology, Jan 19, 2023)
Unvaccinated COVID patients 'at greater risk of death and cardiovascular disease for at least 18 months after infection' (Sky, Jan 18, 2023)

So she appears to have died a martyr for her cause.

I don't agree but that's fine. We'll just have to agree to disagree. I don't see any evidence at all that says she died of anything related to COVID.

She probably had a sudden moment of clarity, realized what a complete ******* ******* she was, and died of shock.

From what I have seen she was very sick in November, probably with Covid. And she got better.

She then died a couple of months later.

No idea if Covid contributed to it but it is perfectly possible that it did. Remember that many people DO die of strokes and heart attacks within a few months of recovering from flu and I believe that Covid has also been implicated in this.

Either the claim that it was vaccines that caused her death is a flat out lie or worse it should have resulted in an epiphany that vaccines would have been far more likely to keep her alive.

Silk certainly seems to be talking her way into a silly place by mixing up all her conspiracy theories in a dumb pudding.

I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm saying I don't see the connection and there hasn't been one established by anyone with knowledge of the situation. I don't honestly give a **** either way since I don't know her and she means nothing to my day to day.

That being said, she was overweight, probably didn't have a healthy eating style, and she was 51. It could have been a **** ton of things that contributed to her passing. If people want the irony of her dying by COVID, then have at it. I'm just saying it's far from proven, very far.

I agree. Assuming she died from Covid or was Covid related is just that: assuming.

Proof of microclots caused by long COVID would have required an autopsy, but no autopsy was performed, which is shocking when her sister said:
'I call it murder': Silk revives anti-vax 'shedding' conspiracy while eulogizing Diamond.
Of course, vaccine 'shedding' would require a revision of the laws of nature. Their parents might have been able to help them with that:
Freeman and Betty Hardaway sold purported weight-loss cures and wreaths to ward off witchcraft.
