Despite what some national news outlets are reporting it appears the Sandra Bland autopsy is not botched and complete in Texas.
However, I have learned officials in Texas have asked the family and attorney in Illinois to preserve Bland’s body for other reasons.
I’m told that request for preservation was made because new information was revealed that wasn’t known during the autopsy.
The Harris County medical examiner issued the following statement to media outlets today.
Statement from Medical Examiner:
The autopsy examination and report for Sandra Bland was completed by the Harris County Medical Examiner, but is not a Harris County case. The death occurred in Waller County and is a Waller County case. The completed autopsy report has been provided to those agencies requesting the autopsy examination.
