About the Clarence Peter’s case,
Really sad.
Permit me to point out something as a doctor.

Do not put any substance or liquid (Milk or not)in the mouth of an unconscious, gasping or convulsing person.

They can aspirate that fluid into their lungs and that alone can kill faster.
If they already have fluid in their mouth, you can roll them on their side to let the fluid flow out the corners of their mouth.

If there was none, then please, put none in their mouth.
I know you want to help, but sometimes the best help is doing nothing but rushing to an ER.
Check if the person is breathing. If they’re not breathing, have someone call your local emergency services immediately and prepare to begin CPR. If they’re breathing, position the person on their back.

If there’s food or fluid in their mouth, roll them gently on their side..
so that the food/fluid can sip out from
the corner of their mouth. If they are not convulsing, you can use two clean fingers to scoop out what’s in their mouth.

Loosen tight clothing
Check their airway to make sure there’s no obstruction

Do CPR. Then rush to the hospital.
DO NOT give an unconscious person any food or drink.
DO NOT place a pillow under the head of an unconscious person.
DO NOT slap an unconscious person's face or splash water on their face to try to revive them. Rather, Raise their legs at least 12 inches above the ground.
I hope the police get to the bottom of this.

I hope lessons are learnt from this and I hope no innocent person goes down for this.

Most importantly, May her soul rest in perfect peace and May God giver her family and friends the fortitude to bear this loss.
P.S: You have no reason not to have knowledge of Basic First aid. Pay if you have to, to learn.
One day it might be the determining factor between life and death of a loved one.

It will hurt to learn that a loved one could have lived if you had not just put fluid in their mouth.
