Governor Bevin: Release Gynnya McMillen's Surveillance Video

Release the Lincoln Village Regional Juvenile Detention Center surveillance video and provide answers for the death of sixteen-year-old Gynnya McMillen.

Why is this important?

On January 11, my sister, Gynnya McMillen, was found dead in her room in a Kentucky juvenile detention center after being in custody for only a little over 24 hours. Since Gynnya’s death, the police are stating that they “didn’t expect that foul play was involved,” but it has recently been discovered that Gynnya was improperly monitored and immobilized when staff placed her in a martial-arts hold hours before she was found dead.

There are so many suspicious factors surrounding the death of my sister. Governor Matt Bevin has fired KY Juvenile Justice Commissioner Bob Hayer and a staffer at the detention center, yet has failed to provide answers to how Gynnya died. Please sign this petition and join my family in demanding for Governor Bevin to release the Lincoln Village Regional Juvenile Detention Center surveillance video and provide answers about Gynnya’s death.

- Greg, Gynnya's Brother

Reasons for signing

  • only those who are corrupt could condone or hide it. As seen by the arrest of a 16yr girl the law is applied to everyone so if murder is illegal then all must be accountable no matter who they are.
  • Release the video!
  • Transparency benefits everyone.
