Bland’s family continue to press for answers, despite in their opinion, a lack of all the evidences presented in regards to her arrest and eventual death.

 

WALLER COUNTY, TX (KTRK) —

The grand jury has decided that no one should be indicted in connection with the death of a woman found dead inside a Waller County jail cell over the summer, a special prosecutor for the case tells Eyewitness News.

This summer, trooper Brian Encinia pulled Bland over for a traffic stop. The situation quickly escalated. Bland was arrested and housed in the Waller County jail. 3 days later, she was found dead inside a jail cell. Investigators said she hanged herself, but family members say they believe there’s more to the story.

Grand jurors spent all Monday with special prosecutors, pouring over evidence. They looked at Bland’s traffic stop, her arrest and time spent in jail. Special prosecutors made no recommendations, just presented information. Out of all of that, the grand jury cleared jail employees of criminal wrongdoing and did not return an indictment related to Bland’s death.

Special prosecutor Darrell Jordan says grand jurors will reconvene January 6 to discuss other matters related to the case.

“There are other issues that the grand jury is still considering and they will take up those issues when we return next month. As for what happened, the details, of course those are all secret and we cannot discuss those,” Jordan said.
