Her death was announced on March 14th, 2022.
According to this article by KMOV:
“According to pictures posted on social media, Walker was at St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones’ birthday party at Neo on Locust on Thursday, March 10. The two were close friends, according to a press release from the mayor’s office.
The following morning, EMS was called to the Loews Hotel and transported a woman to the hospital in critical condition. Police confirmed the woman, believed to be Walker, was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly before 10 a.m
The Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy Monday morning and told News 4 there were no signs of physical injury on Walker’s body. He said they will not declare a cause and manner of death until toxicology and other tests come back, which could take several more weeks.”
Cora was very pro vaccine, as it was regularly plastered throughout tweets, and included mask and vaccine emojis in her profile.
While Cora was opinionated about others masking up and getting vaccinated, Cora also made bold statements such as this on her Facebook account.
“I support a woman’s right to access the full range of reproductive health care, including the right to access safe and legal abortion. Full stop. Missouri Democratic Party, let’s get it right this time. Please and thank you.”
And also statements such as:
“If my reproductive choices are not the government’s business, they for damn sure not my neighbor’s business.”
So Cora was hypocritically advocating for the importance for personal healthcare choices, specifically for a women’s right to choose to have an abortion, but just not this time for Covid Vaccines.
One’s choice not to get vaccinated can affect the entire public (e.g. delta or omicron variant). Private matters abt growing/not growing one’s family should be just that—private.
No one can unilaterally decide which bodily autonomy rights you’re given, and which rights are automatically given up “for the greater good of society”.
That’s not how this works.
May she Rest In Peace.
