MDJ: Cobb DA requests federal investigation of jail deaths

Sept. 16, 2020

Cobb District Attorney Joyette Holmes announced Wednesday she has asked the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia to investigate the death of inmates at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.

Kevil Wingo, 36, died at the detention center Sept. 29, 2019, from a perforated ulcer. His family recently filed a civil lawsuit — in which they allege officers and nurses at the detention center let him die by ignoring his cries for help in the hours before his death — and have been pressing for such an investigation for weeks.

The detention center is operated by the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office, which has come under fire in the past year after the death of Wingo and several other inmates.
