A former broker and RIA killed himself three days after he was arrested for his alleged role in the U.S. Capitol riot, according to authorities.
Christopher Stanton Georgia, 53, of Alpharetta, Georgia, was one of several people arrested Jan. 6, near the Capitol, after D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser issued a curfew in the wake of the riot, court documents show. He was charged with entering and attempting to “enter certain property, that is, the United States Capitol Grounds, against the will of the United States Capitol Police,” according to the documents.
Police found Georgia dead in his home Jan. 9. Medical examiners in Fulton County, on Jan. 11, conducted an autopsy after which they ruled the death a suicide, according to the autopsy report.
