My two main hypotheses are:

  1. She received a serious phone-call (e.g. fired) and saw her current situation as an opportunity to commit suicide in such a way that it was (in her mind) a "righteous act", furthering the "progressive" cause and revealing the "true nature of the police".
  2. Someone she knew from before (reminder: she was returning to the place she had studied, so she knew people there) wanted revenge for either personal reasons or something to do with her activism.

I'm usually quite critical of the police and I think they should have body cams at all times, but I don't think hanging someone like this is something they would do.

  • What did she (or someone else) hang her with?
  • What was that phone call she received before she died?
  • Did she have problems (break-up, mental/physical health, fired, etc.) This will turn out to be a very interesting case I think.

She just got a brand new job, as the story states. =/ There is no video ... where's the dash cam for this "routine stop"? A little too convenient, don't you think?

Yes, but she may have been let go from that job because she was detained by police or something.

I have a different theory. While in prison, the police might have been trying to restrain her. They went too far and believed her to be dead. Fearful they would take the heat for it, they made it look like an asphyxiation and "discovered her" an hour later. At that point, she was dead. I mean, clearly these cops have a habit of making bad decisions when it comes to restraint.

This was my first theory, most likely an accidental death covered up.

That's a pretty good hypothesis, sad I didn't think of that before.

They say she hanged herself with a trash bag.

Her family's last contact with her was Friday evening when she stated her expectation to post bond on Saturday. She was found dead on Monday morning.

Why was she still in jail? What happened to the expected posting of bond?

Cops routinely fuck up when restraining people and accidentally kill them. Occams razor.
