  • Reflect On:Why are those who do the work that Brandy Vaughan did always unacknowledged, censored, and ridiculed any time they attract a lot of attention? Her friends and family need our support, please donate if you can.

What Happened: Approximately one week ago former pharmaceutical (Merck) rep Brandy Vaughan, founder of non-profit LearnTheRisk (, was found dead in her home. Her death was sudden, suspicious and is currently being investigated by authorities. What’s drawn many people’s attention to her death is that she made a Facebook post towards the end of last year urging people to investigate her death and spread the word if she were to be found dead. Prior to that Facebook post she put up a video on YouTube expressing how she had been harrassed and had experienced some weird things as she seemed to be quite shaken and worried. She said it was “scary.”
