Attorneys To Investigate Death Of Sandra Bland

A Texas prosecutor on Monday announced a committee of outside attorneys who will investigate the death of Sandra Bland, who allegedly committed suicide in a jail cell following a traffic stop. The group will “review evidence as it comes in” on both Bland’s initial arrest and her untimely death, Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis said at an afternoon news conference. Mathis acknowledged the national attention that Bland’s death has received and said the committee would help his office to answer the remaining questions circulating around the case. The committee will be led by former prosecutors and defense attorneys Lewis White and Darrell Jordan.
