'Depression' Doesn't Explain Woman's Jail Suicide: Family

The family of Sandy Bland, the woman found dead of an apparent suicide in a Texas jail cell, said Friday that a video from earlier this year in which she talked about battling depression doesn't tell the whole story. The family's attorney, Cannon Lambert Sr., said she "may have used the term 'depression,' but that statement in March had very little to do with her mindset" before she died. Ms. Bland was found hanging in her jail cell on Monday, days after she was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer during a traffic stop.
