    Damn... seems like the good always die young, and yet the corrupt live on.

    We can at least be thankful for his efforts of introducing sanity into our local government.

    Has medical foulplay been ruled out? It seems incredibly strange to me that this would happen to him right after his legal win. What are the odds?

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Idk much about medical stuff, but I doubt the surgery was very high risk to begin with? (It's not like a heart surgery anyway)

    After a google check, it also seems like septic shock is rare and treatable. Maybe I'm overthinking though.

    Considering the persistent drive to murder trans people seemingly possessed by an alarming number of cis people, I wouldn't be awfully surprised.

    As with any surgery sadly, there is always a very small possibility that something could go wrong. I hope his family is able to find comfort during this difficult time knowing how much he contributed to the trans community in Georgia. RIP Rowan
