Mr. Johnson-Liphart was taken to the Baltimore Washington Medical Center for an injury to his hand while Mrs. Hoagland was taken to R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center for an injury to her face.  While being treated at Shock Trauma, Ms. Hoagland’s health deteriorated and she was pronounced deceased on Monday, October 23, 2017.  The Office of the Chief Medical examiner performed an autopsy on Ms. Hoagland and pended the final cause and manner upon review of her medical treatment records.
