Investigation found that Reginald Windham and Victor Holt didn't perform routine bed checks and falsified records saying that they did.

The death of Gynnya McMillen, 16, in a Kentucky detention center earlier this year sparked anger among civil rights activists as details emerged about her passing. But officials say that the teen, who was discovered in her cell on Jan. 11, died of an irregular heartbeat and not from an altercation with the facility's staff, according to BuzzFeed.

Commissioner Bob Hayter was fired for his not informing his higher-ups that an employee who was suspended for the investigation already had a long past of disciplinary problems.

Reginald Windham, a longtime employee of the Lincoln Village Juvenile Detention Center, amassed a record of misconduct, including charges of excessive force and negligence.

More information has come out about the Kentucky juvenile detention center supervisor who put 16-year-old Gynnya McMillen in an "Aikido restraint" within 24 hours of her being found dead on Jan 11.


The center issued an official statement saying that McMillen was restrained because she wouldn't remove her clothes.
