Conspiracy theorist have jumped on social media with the most morbid lies concerning Sandra Bland and her mugshot photo and it’s clearly gotten out of hand. Today officials in Waller County, Texas, released new video showing Bland being booked into jail days before her apparent suicide.
Bland, initially pulled over for a minor traffic violation, was found dead in her jail cell three days after she was arrested following a confrontation with a police officer. Bland’s autopsy reportedly found no evidence of homicide.
Officials have been receiving threats online over the Bland’s death and hope the new video footage can dispel some of the unfounded rumors, CNN’s Ed Lavandera reported.
