Sandra Bland’s Death Ruled a Suicide

Sandra Bland

The cause of Sandra Bland's death was hanging; the manner of death was suicide, a prosecutor told reporters, citing preliminary autopsy results. Warren Diepraam, a Waller County, Texas, prosecutor, provided new details Thursday to support those findings.

Bland — a Black woman whose arrest and, days later, death in custody stirred anger nationwide — did not have injuries on her hands. Defensive injuries there are typical, though not always found, in cases of violent homicide, Diepraam said.
