The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office announced they're investigating the death of 45-year-old Brandy Vaughan, a prominent anti-vaccination activist.

Vaughan, a former Merck pharmaceutical representative, was an outspoken critic of pharmaceutical companies and created the nonprofit organization Learn The Risk, formerly named the Council of Vaccine Safety, that aims to educate people on the "dangers of pharmaceutical products, including vaccines and unnecessary medical treatments," according to the nonprofit's website. 

The Santa Barbara resident and UC Santa Barbara alum stated pharmaceutical companies are intentionally making people sick for profit. 

On Monday, the Sheriff's Public Information Officer Raquel Zick posted an update on Twitter stating Coroners Detectives are conducting an investigation into Vaughan's December 7th death of 45-year-old Brandy Vaughan of Santa Barbara.

"The decedent has been positively identified and the death is believe [sic] to be a result of natural causes based on an autopsy exam conducted last week. The final cause and manner of death determination are pending toxicology screening which normally takes 4-6 weeks," Zick stated.

Vaughan had tens of thousands of followers throughout the world, some of whom are questioning the nature of her death and suggesting foul play.

“Rest in peace to my friend and fellow colleague and Activist and hero, Brandy Vaughan founder of Learn The Risk org. Brandi was just found dead by her only son, who is a minor, at such a young age. She posted publicly many times that if she were found dead it was foul play,” wrote Erin Elizabeth of Health Nut News wrote on Twitter.

Vaughan is survived by her son Bastian.

Speculate all you want, conspire all you want, we will know when the autopsy results come in. Why would big pharma expose themselves to a risk like this for one small voice in the wilderness? This isn't Putin's Russia.
