Dr. Diaz did not offer any new information about Sicknick. Conflicting reports have surrounded his cause of death.

The most recent speculation presumes that the 42-year-old Sicknick suffered a stroke after inhaling an aerosol-based “bear spray” during the riot. But authorities have refused to confirm that theory.

Federal prosecutors in Washington have charged two men with assaulting Sicknick during the riot, but have not said if either man played a role in his death.
