Denied: KXAN series reports on police withholding records when suspect dies

KXAN television in Austin is airing a series about a Texas law that gives police discretion to withhold information if a suspect dies in custody. Legislative efforts to close that loophole failed in 2017, but it has not stopped the families who have been denied video and other records detailing their loved ones’ final moments from speaking out. Check out this KXAN report based on a year-long investigation and shining light on the need for police accountability, transparency and trust.
