District attorney Rex Gore has found no “inappropriate conduct” by two detention officers related to the death of inmate Senaca Marrell Vaught.
Vaught, 32, died while in custody at the Brunswick County Detention Center on Jan. 23 after a brief struggle with detention officers Karl Scoggins and Dustin Riddle.
Vaught was pronounced dead at 10:14 p.m. Jan. 23.
Around 9:30 p.m., Scoggins and Riddle responded to Vaught’s solitary observation cell because he was kicking the door. When the two officers responded, Vaught charged at them.
