An investigation into the cause of Gynnya McMillen’s death is underway. As a result, a Lincoln Village Regional Juvenile Detention Center employee has been placed on paid investigative leave. The employee’s name has not been released. Gynnya was in the facility for less than one day when she was found dead.

The investigation has led to a report that the employee failed to make the required bed checks in the facility. Footage from the surveillance camera in the 16-year old’s cell will be reviewed. Following the conclusion of the investigation, additional disciplinary actions may occur.

The cause of the teen’s death has not been released. Results are still pending from the coroner’s office.

Investigations are ongoing both internally and externally. Both the Kentucky State Police and Justice Cabinet’s Internal Investigations Branch are actively involved in the investigations.

In cases of criminal justice system negligence, Harman Law LLC works hard to protect the rights of and pursue justice for incarcerated victims and their families.  Harman Law recently filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on behalf of the parents of an Atlanta teen who died in a juvenile detention center.
