Uniece Glenae Fennell’s death is a horrible tragedy. We extend our condolences to those who knew and loved Uniece and we hope they can find space to grieve and mourn in peace.
At least this time the public was informed about a death at the jail. That is only because of the fierce struggle for justice undertaken by family, loved ones, friends and community members after Matthew McCain’s death in January 2016.
Uniece is the fourth person since 2015 to die in the Durham County Jail under the direction of Sheriff Mike Andrews. The Durham County Jail does nothing but isolate, abuse, neglect, and kill our friends and family. Though we don’t know the exact circumstances of Uniece’s death, we do know that no one should ever die in jail. Because this jail has already killed so many, and before it kills even more, we say no more jail deaths, no more jail.
We are trying to find out more about this tragic death. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919.666.7854 if you have information.
