The Texas Department of Public Safety released almost an hour of dash cam video. But in several parts of the footage, the video is looped while the officer's audio continues uninterrupted.Also unclear is why the woman was found dead in her cell the next morning. You can be sure this case isn't going away anytime soon.
For example, there are moments when a car or wrecker driver appears in the frame, suddenly disappears, and then appears once again.
It's not clear whether the video was deliberately edited, or if the looped video over the audio track is the result of an equipment problem.
What seems clear is that the officer was just going to give her a warning until she got argumentative and, eventually, combative. She decided to assert her independence, and it got her a trip to jail. Somehow, she was hanged that night in her cell. A suicide? A lynching? We may never know. But now that the video tape shows signs of either editing or an equipment failure, expect gasoline on the fire.
