- The Facts:A fundraiser has been set up to investigate the sudden death of Brandy Vaughan, as requested by her, to investigate if she were to pass away suddenly. The Santa Barbara police have also launched an investigation into her death.
- Reflect On:Why are those who do the work that Brandy Vaughan did always unacknowledged, censored, and ridiculed any time they attract a lot of attention? Her friends and family need our support, please donate if you can.
What Happened: Approximately one week ago former pharmaceutical (Merck) rep Brandy Vaughan, founder of non-profit LearnTheRisk (learntherisk.org), was found dead in her home. Her death was sudden, suspicious and is currently being investigated by authorities. What’s drawn many people’s attention to her death is that she made a Facebook post towards the end of last year urging people to investigate her death and spread the word if she were to be found dead. Prior to that Facebook post she put up a video on YouTube expressing how she had been harrassed and had experienced some weird things as she seemed to be quite shaken and worried. She said it was “scary.”
If something were to happen to me, it’s foul play and you know exactly who and why – given my work and mission in this life. I’m also NOT accident prone. And I got the highest health rating possible when I went through a battery of medical tests a couple of years ago for my life insurance policy. If something were to happen to me, I have arranged for a close group of my friends to start a GoFundMe to hire a team of private investigators to figure out all the details ( I have the team and have passed the info on to them). Oh, and money for a PR firm to make it national news. There would be a press release sent to every journalist in this country (and more). It would not be swept under the rug, and it would be their worst nightmare – Vaughan

The latest update comes from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office who just announced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding her death.
“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,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff Public Information Officer Raquel Zick said in a statement. “The final cause and manner of death determination are pending toxicology screening which normally takes 4-6 weeks.” (source)
According to Children’s Health Defense, Brandy Vaughan passed away due to gallbladder complications, a medical issue that she privately struggled with throughout 2020. This was a confusing post given the fact that no evidence has been provided to make this claim, and it contradicts what people closest to Brandy have been saying, that foul play cannot be ruled out until a proper investigation has ensued.
A recent Facebook post by one of her best friends, Tina Marie who Vaughan had thanksgiving dinner with, where she was completely fine, happy and healthy, just days before her death reads as follows:
Please held share the fundraiser for Brandy all over! I’m exhausted. I’ve slept 14 hours total since I found out she passed. I need an army of help!!! We are up against a powerful beast that has the money to hire PR teams, controlled operatives, etc. We have beautiful souls and passionate hearts…United we stand! Let’s honor Brandy Vaughan’s dying wish (which was to have her death properly investigated). Thank you for supporting. Please help us bring justice to her, by donating, and/or sharing the fundraiser. She deserves a proper investigation!
If Vaughan was murdered, those who committed this crime must have been well aware that an investigation, autopsy and toxicology report would ensue. No doubt they would make their best efforts to make Vaughan’s death appear as if she died of natural causes. It’s just chilling to think that Vaughan had been warning her followers about this for quite some time, and that her death is extremely sudden and suspicious. We may never get the answers we are looking for, but hopefully we do, which again is where your help with the fundraiser comes in.
So, as of now, there are still a lot of unanswered questions, and we just don’t know what exactly happened.
Vaughan was the founder of learntherisk.org, a website/non-profit organization that created awareness about the dangers of various pharmaceutical drugs and concerns that many scientists and doctors have been raising about vaccines.
Her background, working for pharmaceutical giant Merck, inspired her to do the incredible and brave work that she did. She was a legend and worked extremely hard with enormous amounts of passion and determination. While working in the pharmaceutical industry she sold Vioxx, a painkiller that was found to double the risk of stroke and heart attacks and was eventually taken off the market as a result. “From that experience, I realized that just because something is on the market doesn’t mean it’s safe,” explained Vaughan. “Much of what we are told by the healthcare industry just simply isn’t the truth.”
Her organization created awareness in a very credible way. She gathered countless doctors and scientists from around the world and archived published peer-reviewed research outlining the concerns being raised in the scientific community about various drugs and vaccines.
Her organization reached millions of people globally every single month on social media, and tens of thousands through her website alone. They posted 38 billboards which reached over 30 million people, and they have hosted over 30 campaigns and rallies in the past two years. They’ve produced videos and educational materials that reach over 1 million people, and did educational talks and events worldwide.(source)
We are actively changing the conversation around vaccines and the pharmaceutical industry, which should never be trusted with our collective health – Vaughan (source)
The Takeaway: I published an article about Vaughan’s death shortly after her passing. In it I concluded what I write below. My thoughts and feelings remain the same, so I thought I would just copy and paste it here for those who didn’t read my previous article:
Many mysterious deaths have plagued the alternative media/health community over the years, especially when it comes to holistic doctors.
Vaughan was one of many to create awareness about issues, especially concerns about vaccine safety, in a credible way. It’s one thing we pride ourselves on doing here at Collective Evolution. Despite presenting information from credible sources, renowned scientists and peer reviewed publications, concerns raised by vaccine safety advocates are often labelled as “conspiracy theories.” Anybody who presents any type of information that raises any type of concerns about them is always referred to as an “anti-vax conspiracy theorist” while the concerns they raise are never really properly addressed nor countered. This happens to doctors and renowned scientists publishing research all over the world, yet their concerns, again, continue to remain unacknowledged and ridiculed by the mainstream.
Why does this happen these days with so many controversial topics? What’s going on here? Here’s one topic on the issue, out of many, that is a great example of what I am talking about.
Our sincerest thoughts go out to all of her family and friends, we will continue to do what she would want all of us in this space to do, keep going.
I’d like to leave you with this quote to reflect on, taken from a paper published in the International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy by professor Paddy Rawlinson, from Western Sydney University.
Critical criminology repeatedly has drawn attention to the state-corporate nexus as a site of corruption and other forms of criminality, a scenario exacerbated by the intensification of neoliberalism in areas such as health. The state-pharmaceutical relationship, which increasingly influences health policy, is no exception. That is especially so when pharmaceutical products such as vaccines, a burgeoning sector of the industry, are mandated in direct violation of the principle of informed consent. Such policies have provoked suspicion and dissent as critics question the integrity of the state-pharma alliance and its impact on vaccine safety. However, rather than encouraging open debate, draconian modes of governance have been implemented to repress and silence any form of criticism, thereby protecting the activities of the state and pharmaceutical industry from independent scrutiny. The article examines this relationship in the context of recent legislation in Australia to intensify its mandatory regime around vaccines. It argues that attempts to undermine freedom of speech, and to systematically excoriate those who criticise or dissent from mandatory vaccine programs, function as a corrupting process and, by extension, serve to provoke the notion that corruption does indeed exist within the state-pharma alliance.
