Hundreds of mourners attended the funeral of Sandra Bland in a Chicago suburb on Saturday. Bland, 28, committed suicide in her jail cell 3 days after she was arrested for assaulting an officer during a traffic stop.
Bland's family and the hundreds of mourners who never Bland were unified in the belief that she was murdered.
But an inmate in a cell across from Bland at the Waller County jail in Hempstead, Texas, said she was "positive" Bland committed suicide.
Alexandria Pyle, who was in jail for unpaid parking tickets, told CNN Bland "wasn't eating, and was emotional, and often crying during her three days in the jail."
“She was crying, and I could barely understand her,” Pyle told ABC 13 News.
Pyle said Bland's $5,000 bail was set Saturday morning.
"She found out her bond was $5,000, and no one -- she was calling and calling -- and no one was answering, and then after that she just broke down. She was crying and crying," Pyle said.
Bland told Pyle that her roommate LaVaughn Mosley refused to answer her calls for 3 days.
“She said, ‘He’s not answering, it’s going straight to voicemail. I don’t know why, I don’t know why. He said he’s going to be here in an hour, and it’s days later,'” Pyle said.
A bail bondsman was among the last people to speak with Bland before she tied a trash bag into a slipknot around her neck and hung herself from a metal barrier in her cell.
The bondsman said he offered to call Bland's mother for her because her mother was not answering any of Bland's calls.
Bland's emotional condition in the days before her death is consistent with someone who suffered from clinical depression.
