Natasha McKenna Video Footage Released

The Fairfax County Sheriff's Office released video of deputies trying to restrain an inmate who later died.

In the video, deputies are seen trying to restrain Natasha McKenna in a chair so she could be transported to Alexandria.



The deputies, dressed in bio-hazard suits, can be heard telling McKenna to "stop resisting" and to "hold still." McKenna can be heard breathing heavily as deputies work to restrain her. According to the commonwealth's attorney's report, she thought they would hurt her.

"You promised me you wouldn't kill me. I didn't do anything," McKenna said, according to the report.
