Documentation just obtained by Judicial Watch confirm that a request to cremate Ashli Babbitt’s body was submitted by the Chief Medical Examiner only two days after having obtained custody of the body, and further reveal that Babbitt’s fingerprints, emailed to an alleged government worker on January 6, caused the return of Microsoft “undeliverable” messages in Chinese characters.
The 1160 pages of documentation contain numerous revelations about the actions of government officials following the homicide shooting of unarmed Air Force veteran Babbitt by an unidentified law enforcement officer at the Capitol on January 6. The documents come from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) in Washington, D.C., and prove that OCME submitted a request to obtain permission to cremate Ashli Babbitt just two days after having custody of the body, an application labeled “completed successfully” on January 8. Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Francisco Diaz, based on the “high profile nature” of Babbitt’s case, further requested the creation of a limited access, secure electronic file for the records concerning Babbitt.
As early as January 6 itself, an OCME official was emailing Babbitt’s fingerprints, which were forwarded to someone with the result that “undeliverable” messages apparently in Chinese characters were returned.
The unarmed Babbitt had been attempting to climb into the Capitol through a “broken interior window. . .outside the Speaker’s Lobby off the House Floor” at the time of the shooting. According to videos from the same time, several law enforcement officers are reportedly able to be seen standing amidst the same crowd of protestors in which Babbitt was.
