FL- Inmate Commits Suicide

6-10-2009 Florida:

Okaloosa County, Fla:

A former Crestview resident charged with sexually molesting two children in his care committed suicide while being held at the Okaloosa County Jail.

Director of Corrections, Larry Caskey, tells News 13 that Russel Bauer IV, 30, was found Tuesday afternoon around 3:30 p.m. by a corrections officer. Caskey says Bauer hung himself with a sheet.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office says Bauer admitted to foundling the 5 and 6 year old victims on multiple occasions at his Crestview home. They also say he confessed to performing sexual acts on one of the children.

Bauer was brought into the jail on June 5th and was on suicide watch early on and had been moved to a step down process where he was checked on every 15 minutes. According to Caskey, Bauer had only been left unattended for 10 minutes before he was found dead.

Caskey says jail employees had just completed a review of suicide prevention procedures. The Okaloosa Corrections Department and Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the suicide. ..Source.. by Heather Kretzer

I am beginning to wonder if these are actual suicides, or murders made to look like suicides?
