HEMPSTEAD, Texas — Texas authorities are releasing more video of Sandra Bland during her three days in jail.
Waller County Judge Trey Duhon said Tuesday that several hours of jail footage is being distributed to the media, partially in response to conspiracy theories about her death. He says these allegations have prompted death threats against county officials and that the most serious have been turned over to the FBI.
The first portions of footage show Bland being taken out of a patrol car at the jail and questioned by a jailer. She's then briefly placed in a holding cell before her mugshot is taken and she makes a phone call.
Bland was found dead in her cell July 13, three days after her arrest. Authorities have ruled the death a suicide.
