MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) — An autopsy conducted by the Montgomery County Coroner shows 22-year-old Sarah Grossman, a 2020 Ohio State graduate, died from a coronary artery dissection due to a previously undiagnosed genetic variant of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a group of inherited disorders that mostly affect the skin, joints, and blood vessels.
Grossman’s death became public after the City of Columbus tweeted on June 3 saying it was looking into social media reports claiming Grossman died after being sprayed with tear gas during a protest in Columbus. Grossman died on May 30.
The Grossman family released the following statement following the autopsy report, which was released Friday, July 10.
