Details about Fuller’s cause of death are not yet available. Fuller’s death certificate had not been filed as of Nov. 29, according to the clerk’s office in Washtenaw County, Michigan, where Fuller lived. The Washtenaw County medical examiner’s office said there was no record of an autopsy report for Fuller.
Multiple Instagram posts suggested that Fuller’s death was linked to COVID-19 vaccines.
