Gynnya McMillen Death
The family of teenager in Kentucky is searching for answers after she died in police custody.
16-year-old Gynnya McMillen died on January 11 in Elizabethtown, Kentucky under mysterious circumstances according to her family.
Officials in Kentucky are investigating a 16-year-old girl’s death at a juvenile detention center.
Gynnya McMillen was found unresponsive early in the morning of Jan. 11, at the Lincoln Village Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Elizabethtown, Ky. State and local officials are investigating, but a week after McMillen’s death, officials have released few details in the case.
Hardin County Coroner William Lee, Jr. said in an interview Monday that in an initial autopsy on Jan. 12, he saw no outward signs, such as “visual bruising,” that could conclusively signal a cause of death. Lee also said it was unlikely she had a heart condition.
Lee said the full results wouldn’t be available for weeks, until after pathology tests were done.
On Jan. 15, a person claiming to be McMillen’s sister created a Facebook page called “Justice for Gynnya McMillen,” on which she pleads for more information related to the case.
“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,” the person wrote in a post that has been shared more than 19,000 times.
It is not clear why McMillen was is custody at the time of her death.
A GoFundMe page has now surfaced for the family of the teen.
People are now of course likening her to mysterious death to Sandra Bland’s.
Something’s definitely off here; how is there no cause of death???
