See Inside The Cell Where Sandra Bland's Body Was Found
Footage has given a glimpse into the jail cell where Sandra Bland's body was found hanged last week.
The 28-year-old died at Waller County Jail in Houston, Texas on July 13, just three days after she was arrested in a routine traffic stop.
Footage taken from inside the cell shows the area where she was discovered at a partition between the bathroom and the rest of the room.
Bland's death was ruled as a suicide but her family has called for a probe, claiming that she would never take her own life. Authorities have said they are investigating the death as if it were a murder, as is routine.
The footage comes a day after authorities released video taken from a trooper's dashboard camera during her arrest last week.
Social media is filled with conspiuracy theories about whether the video has been editied at two points because people seem to disappear and then reappear on the footage.
But on Wednesday, the Texas Department of Public Safety said that the apparent glitches were due to technical problems during the uploading process. They will be releasing a new version, they said.
In the video, the trooper can be seen ordering her out of a car after she refuses to put out her cigarette before he pulls out his Taser. She is later handcuffed off screen.
On Tuesday, some Texas lawmakers said that she was "threatened" with a Taser during the stop and believe she should not have been arrested.
"Once you see what occurred, you will probably agree with me that she shouldn't have been taken into custody," state Senator Royce West said at a news conference.
The FBI and the Department of Justice have also been asked to help with the investigation.
