Gynnya McMillen’s family wants answers, after the 16-year-old died at a juvenile detention center in Kentucky on Jan. 11.
McMillen was at the Lincoln Valley Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Elizabethtown, Ky., but officials have released very little details about her death.
According to the initial autopsy report, McMillen didn’t have any bruising and Cornoner Will Lee said it was unlikely she had a heart condition.
“My 16yr old sister died in custody of a detention center but they’re not giving out any info on how she was found and they’re saying (her) autopsy shows no cause of death”.
Information has not been released as to why McMillen was in the center.
“Gynnya stayed to herself a whole lot,” Whaley said. “She didn’t bother anyone, she didn’t disturb anyone and didn’t kick up any fuss,” Karen Whaley, a counselor who worked with McMillen at another residential facility, told the media.
Whaley echoed calls on the Facebook page for details about the circumstances of McMillen’s death.
“I don’t know how she passed and that’s the one thing that’s blowing me away. That and it being in police custody,” Whaley said.
