A grand jury will not indict anyone in connection with the death of Sandra Bland, who was found hanged in a Texas jail cell in July. Five months after her death drew national protests, one of special prosecutors for the case, Darrell Jordan, told The Washington Post that the grand jury decided not to indict anyone, including staff at the Waller County Jail where Bland was held, in connection with her death. Bland was arrested during a traffic stop on July 10 that turned confrontational, and was found dead three days later.
