KENNESAW, Ga. -- Friends and relatives say a Georgia woman killed in Wednesday’s siege of the U.S. Capitol was a recovering drug addict who wanted to become a sobriety counselor.

But she also believed, wrongly, that President Donald Trump won the November election, and she’d begun following a dark conspiracy theory that has circulated online.

Thirty-four-year-old Rosanne Boyland, of Kennesaw, was one of three people who died of medical emergencies during a siege Wednesday by Trump loyalists that came as Congress was certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

A fourth person was fatally shot by police and an officer was also killed.
