He said that he had checked on Bland less than a hour before she was found dead but he actually didn’t. Lambert claims that none of the guards had checked on Bland or some of the other inmates in that hour.
A source has claimed that special prosecutors were aware of the falsified records but a grand jury declined to indict anyone from the sheriff’s office.
28 year old Bland died on July 13, 2015. Just three days after being pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop by former Texas State Trooper Brian Encinia. She was found in her cell hanging from a noose made from a plastic trash bag. Her death was ruled a suicide.
