Waller County DA releases Sandra Bland’s toxicology report

AUSTIN — Sandra Bland’s toxicology report, released on Monday, showed she had levels of marijuana in her system when she died.

The report detailed little new information and was brief. Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis said additional tests will be conducted. After releasing the toxicology on Monday, he declined to comment on the findings. Mathis also announced he is forming an independent committee of former prosecutors and defense attorneys to review evidence about the arrest and death of Bland.

“There are many lingering questions regarding the death of Sandra Bland,” Mathis said.

Bland was pulled over on July 10 in Waller County for failing to signal a lane change. The routine traffic stop turned heated when Bland refused to put out a cigarette. Bland and the state trooper got in a screaming fight that ended in her arrest. Three days later she was found dead in her jail cell. Since then, her case has attracted national attention.
