It is unclear what Aaron does for a living.
He reportedly sent Babbitt a text message during the protests asking for a “status check” but did not hear back from her afterwards.
How did Ashli Babbitt die at the Capitol Building?
Video footage captured the sound of the gunshot and showed the woman crumpling to the floor from multiple angles.

Babbitt’s mother-in-law claims that the family found out about her death on TV saying: “I’m numb. I’m devastated. Nobody from DC notified my son and we found out on TV. She is a Trump supporter.
Adding: “Aaron’s brother Justin, who was Ashli’s brother-in-law, said everything was “pretty surreal. It’s hard because we haven’t been officially notified.”
What did she say before the protests?
The day before she died, Babbitt tweeted: “Nothing will stop us…. they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light.”
Babbitt, who used the Twitter handle CommonAshSense, also retweeted — a few hours ahead of her and other Donald Trump supporters storming the Capitol — a “MUST BE DONE LIST before Congress meets today.”
On January 5, Babbitt retweeted TV footage of a pro-Trump crowd massing in DC ahead of the January 6 riots over the election result.

Although it is a stretch, many believe that tv’s The Simpsons have long before predicted monumental world scenarios such as coronavirus, the 2020 presidential election, and Trump winning the presidency nearly four years ago.
Eerily enough, the Simpsons’ 31st Halloween special, Treehouse of Horror XXXI, ominously predicts a 2021 doomsday scenario.
The episode, which aired on November 1, frighteningly examines the 2020 election campaign and inauguration day for 2021’s new president.
The episode depicts the fictitious town in an apocalypse, where robots fill the streets, buildings are on fire and Homer is wearing armor, equipped with a rifle.
At the end, four flags are seen reading: “Pestilence,” “Famine,” “War,” and “Treehouse of Horror XXXI.”
