Wife of martyr "Abbas Amiri" dies of stress related causes

Accused of being an infidel and worthy of death,Security officers,having repeatedly insulted her and accused of becoming an Armenian,threatened her to leave townafter the burial of husband
According to information obtained by Farsi Christian New Network and sources from the city of "Masjid-Soleiman", after the assault of plain clothes security officers in the city of "Malek-Shahr" which resulted in the martyrdom of one of the leaders of the house-church movements, Mr. "Abbad Amiri",sister "Sakineh Rahnama", the wife of Martyr Amiri, who was also physically assaulted by security officers and the painful stress of separation from her husband, died on Sunday, August 3, 2008, in the city of Masjid-Sleiman.FCNN reports that after the death of this sister, which took place at 2:00 am, a team of male and female security officers, all in plain clothes, began to guard and keep the home of the family under surveillance.Some of these officers, upon entering the home of the Amiri family, ordered the relatives of these loved ones that they had no permission to conduct any kind of memorial or funeral services for sister Rahnama and they had to immediately leave the city. This conversation caused the son of the martyr Amiri to raise his voice and begin to scream at them until several security officers attacked him and began to beat him up with their fists and step on him. Our Christian sister, Sakineh Rahnama, was buried on Monday, August 4, 2008, next to her beloved husband with family and friends in attendance.Farsi Christian New Network and other Christian organizations from within and without Iran express their sincere condolences to the children and friends of the family and pray for the patience and the comfort of the Lord Jesus to be with them and remember them in our prayers.We Christians seek peace and avoid any kind of bloodshed and we pray for all those responsible for these murders that the Lord would forgive them, just as our Lord Jesus prayed for His enemies from the cross saying., “Father, Forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing!”
We pray that these individuals would wake up before the coming of the Lord Jesus lest they be found guilty and condemned.
As in the days of Noah...

How does anyone really know that this death was "stress-related"? The artcle sounds a little biased and sensationalized to me. People sometimes, just die. On average, it happens 150,000 times per day, in fact, throughout the world.
