RIP LILLIAN KANN (April 26, 2002 – October 24, 2022)

Formal death pronouncement was on Monday at 11:24 p.m.

The decedent was a student at the University of California, a junior expected to graduate in 2024. Her major was Human Biology with minors in Behavioral Economics and in International Health, Development, and Social Justice. She was in Alpha Phi Omega and on USC’s equestrian team. A pronoun user, she definitely was injected with synthetic mRNA.

Methemoglobinemia is a condition of elevated methemoglobin in the blood. Symptoms may include headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, poor muscle coordination, and blue-colored skin. Complications may include seizures and heart arrhythmias.

The intentional ingestion of sodium nitrite or sodium nitrate, causing MetHb, is an uncommon and recently identified method of suicide.

Usually a medical examiner would list “sodium nitrite toxicity” as a cause of death in these cases, either as Cause A or Cause B.

Sodium nitrite is a white crystalline powder. If someone ingests enough of this substance, it can interfere with the ability of red blood cells to transport oxygen. The dangerous and potentially fatal condition is called methemoglobinemia.

A detailed report by the government investigator and medical examiner assigned to this case may be purchased from L.A. County for 67 dollars. It includes field notes on the circumstances of the death.
