What happened to Sandra Bland?

That’s the question that’s floating around Waller County this week.

This is after Bland was arrested Friday and placed in the Waller County jail.

Monday she was found hanging in her jail cell according to friends.

Sources in the community say they spoke with Bland Saturday and she had a $5,000 bond for assaulting a police officer. We’re told she was originally pulled over for failing to signal by a State Trooper.


Some in the racially charged community say they now suspect foul play. One friend tells the Factor the 28 year old just got a new job and had everything to live for.

Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis confirms the Texas Rangers have been brought in to conduct the investigation.

A representative at the Sheriff’s office says they will soon release a press release on the issue.

In the meantime, some friends in the community say they plan to protest to the sheriff’s office until they get answers and justice.

I had a chance to speak with Bland’s sister who said the family is still in Chicago and they won’t likely get to Texas until Friday.

As expected the sister says the family I still trying to digest all of the facts before they make their next move!

    Please please please do not let her story die along with her! I KNEW her, she was not only my crab sister but my real sister and my best friend. I can’t imagine how she felt during the final moments of her passing, but I KNOW she would not hurt herself in any way shape or form. Sandra Bland was a fighter, she was recently posting positive motivational messages on FaceBook via her hashtag #SandySpeaks. Even told the officers once she got out, she would do another #SandySpeaks video on how they were treating her, from the initial arrest to what happened while she was in jail!!! Do not let Waller County get away with this! They must pay!
