Sandra Bland’s Death Is Now Being Investigated As A MURDER, Not A Suicide

The death of civil rights and police accountability activist Sandra Bland is now being treated as a murder, according to a Texas district attorney.
The statement came Monday, after police blamed Sandra for her own death over the past week.
“There are many questions being raised about this case. It needs a thorough and exhaustive review,” Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis said during a news conference Monday evening.
“This is being treated like a murder investigation,” Mathis said at the press conference, according to the Texas Tribune.
“While the Harris County medical examiner ruled her death consistent with a suicide,” the Tribune added, “Mathis said it is now being treated as a murder,” even after the medical examiner’s ruling.
“There are too many questions that need to be resolved. Ms. Bland’s family does make valid points. She did have a lot of things going on in her life for good,” Mathis said.
Still in denial that they might be held accountable for this crime, Waller County Sheriff’s Office Captain of Patrol Brian Cantrell, however, said at the same conference that the death was a suicide.
“I want to make clear that the death of Ms. Bland was a tragic incident — not one of criminal intent or a criminal act,” he stated.
Cantrell doubled down on the police narrative that Bland, 28, had “strangled herself with a jail cell trash bag,” MSNBC reported.
Sandra’s family disputes all of this and they are demanding an independent autopsy.
