Sandra Bland was arrested during a routine traffic stop which ended in an altercation with an officer and her in handcuffs. She was found dead in her jail cell a few days following the arrested for what the Waller County Sheriff called and a coroner confirmed was “self-inflicted asphyxiation.”

Bland’s family however is challenging the ruling saying that Sandra would never commit suicide because she had too much to live for. Bland had just moved to Texas to begin a new job at Texas A&M. Bland’s sister said, “Based on the Sandy I knew, this is unfathomable to me,” she continued, “People who knew her, truly knew her, the depth of her, that’s unfathomable right now.”

During a press conference on Monday the Texas district attorney said, “The probe into the jail cell death of Sandra Bland will be treated as thoroughly “as it would be in a murder investigation.”

The district attorney for Waller Elton Mathis said, “There are many questions being raised about this case,” he added,”It needs a thorough and exhaustive review.” He acknowledged Sandra’s family’s concern saying “Ms. Bland’s family did make valid points that she did have a lot of things going on in her life that were good.”

The D.A. closed his statement saying “too early to make any kind of determination that this is a suicide or a murder,” and after all the evidence was complied and turned over to his office it will be presented to a grand jury.

All we can do is hope that his investigation will bring peace and clearer understanding about just what happened to Sandra Bland. Check out the video below for a look into Sandra’s cell.
