OH- Prison suicides prompt review

6-28-2004 Ohio:

COLUMBUS - Three Ohio prison inmates killed themselves in a seven-day period, putting the prison system on pace for a record number this year and prompting a review of suicide prevention policies statewide.

"We want to see if there are any commonalities between the incidents," prison system spokeswoman Andrea Dean said. She said officials believe, after an initial review, that there was no common thread in the inmate deaths.


Thomas L. Brewer, 23, of Clermont County, died June 20 at the Ross Correctional Institutional at Chillicothe. Brewer entered prison June 8, 2000, on an attempted rape charge. He was to be released May 23, 2008.

Brewer had been on suicide watch, but was sent to an isolation cell where he hanged himself. ..more.. by AP
