Two weeks after 28-year-old Sandra Bland was found hanging in her Waller County, Texas cell—where she had been held for three days since being arrested for changing lanes without using a signal—the controversy over her cause of death is intensifying.

Most recently, following a coroner ruling her death a suicide, some circles in social media have alleged that Bland was already dead in her mugshot.

Citing everything from the low-resolution photo’s background matching the color of a cell’s floor to the positioning of Bland’s shoulders to the way her hair is set, diagrams of the conspiracy started to pick up mainstream coverage in outlets like Buzzfeed, Complex, and The Independent.

But according to leading forensic experts, there is no evidence to indicate Bland is dead in her mugshot—with one even calling the claim “ridiculous.”

“Now, theoretically, you can set up a photo of a dead person to look alive,” said Dr. Michael Baden, who recently conducted a private autopsy at the request of the family of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old black man shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri.

“But to say that she’s dead from the photo is ridiculous because you can say that about almost any head photo. You have to use evidence.”

“There’s nothing in the photo to indicate she’s dead,” says Dr. Adel Shaker, a board-certified anatomic and forensic pathologist with almost three decades of experience. “Period.”

John Hiserodt, a doctor with over 20 years of experience as a forensic pathologist who says he has performed over 4,000 autopsies, says it would be impossible to determine if she’s dead based on the low-resolution picture alone.
