Funeral for Woman Found Dead in Texas Jail Set for Saturday

A black woman found dead in a Texas jail days after she was arrested following a traffic stop will be buried on Saturday in a Chicago suburb as investigators gather more details about the circumstances of her incarceration and death.
The funeral for 28-year-old, Sandra Bland, will be held at DuPage African Methodist Episcopal Church in Lisle, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, followed by burial in a nearby cemetery.
Bland was preparing to start a job at her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University, when she was stopped by a Texas state trooper for failing to signal a lane change near Prairie View, northwest of Houston, on July 10.
