House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday evening will host a ceremonial return of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s body to the Capitol Rotunda.

Sicknick, 43, died last month after he was bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher as he struggled to contain a mob of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters, who stormed the Capitol and disrupted certification of President Biden’s victory.

Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Schumer (D-NY) will lead a ceremonial event at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday marking his return to the building. An overnight viewing period for Capitol Police will begin at 10 p.m., according to a media advisory.

On Wednesday morning, Pelosi and Schumer will speak at a tribute to Sicknick before a departure ceremony on the Capitol steps before noon.

Sicknick was a Trump supporter, his family said.

He was resuscitated twice but developed a brain clot and died a day after the riot.

“If any good comes out of my son’s death, I just hope that it stops all the lunacy that’s been going on in this country,” his dad told Reuters.
