“The full autopsy for Sandra Bland has been released today, providing more insight into how she ended up dead in jail, after being arrestedduring a confrontation with a police officer. Yesterday the prosecutor said that Bland’s injuries are consistent with suicide, and today the extent of those injuries are now available to the public.
The autopsy notes a white trash bag was used as a ligature, “tied into a slip knot that forms a circle at one end and a knotted area at the opposite end.”
