CHICAGO (CBS) — New information could shed more light on the death of Sandra Bland, of Naperville, who was arrested nearly two weeks ago in Waller County, Texas, and then was found dead three days later in her jail cell.
Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis told CBS News reports he ordered an autopsy are not true, but a toxicology report revealed she had a substantial amount of marijuana in her system when she died. He also told CNN autopsy results indicate she had cutting scars on her arm.
The family has hired a medical examiner to conduct an independent autopsy, but the results of that autopsy have not yet been released.
Meantime, newly released booking documents reveal Bland told a deputy at the Waller County jail in Hempstead, Texas, that she once tried to kill herself within the last year by taking pills after she had a miscarriage.
