Sandra Bland’s Cause Of Death Deemed a Suicide, According to Autopsy

Details from an autopsy released today indicated that Sandra Bland died as a result of suicide and that there were no signs of struggle that would be consistent with a violent death.

Warren Diepraam, the first assistant district attorney in Waller County, read details from the toxicology and autopsy reports that were conducted by the Harris County medical examiner, detailing how there were no injuries noted on Bland’s face or hands that someone would typically sustain during a violent struggle.

He did note that Bland had roughly 30 marks on her wrist that were in a “state of healing” which Diepraam said would indicate “that they may have been placed on her body roughly two to four weeks prior to incarceration.”
