but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Kaylee Schnurr

Kaylee Schnurr was just 18 months old when her mother's boyfriend called police and paramedics to his home after he said he found Kaylee unconscious in July of last year.
Matthew Carovillano, 19 would later confess to investigators that he had beaten Keylee, leaving blunt force injuries all over her entire body, and bruising around her neck. He would also evidently admit to raping the small child. The coroner reported that Kalee had suffered multiple injuries including trauma to the brain and abdomen. He was quoted as saying "you could actually see bruising of the brain".
It's been over six months since little Kaylee died, donations came in from the community to help assist her mother in paying the costs to bury her, as she was unable to afford it on her own. Since then the suspect in the case has sat in jail under suicide watch awaiting his trial on charges of assault and rape. Carovillano is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $1.6 million bond.
The murder trial has been delayed after an additional rape charge was added to the suspects list of alleged crimes.

this story literally brought tears to my eyes and i don't even know the victim. i hope that this perpetrator spends the rest of his short life in jail. this was a terrible sentence to give to a young girl. i hold the thoughts of the family in my heart and i hope that they can find the strength to survive throughout this horrible ordeal. i know that if i were in their position that i would be very angry, however, i pray that their feelings reflect the love of this child rather than their anger. my thoughts are with you more than you can imagine.

Anyone who enters a jail or prison is on suicide watch.They are until they see someone from mental health or are cleared by an intake answer sheet.
So the term"under suicide watch" is standard.

Therefore you really don't know the facts...

I'm sorry, they actually do an evalutation of inmates, and then place those who they have concerns on, on watch.

But those cases are few and far between. Inmates coming into jail undergo a medical screening by well-trained officers, Scholar said. If they show a high risk of suicide, they often are taken to MedCentral/Mansfield Hospital for treatment.

If they show a moderate risk, correction officers will frequently check on them while they remain in custody, he said. Like the county jail, the city jail has a high turnover rate, so inmates often do not stay longer than 48 hours.

""As they come in, if there is indication of a suicide, they are put under suicide watch," Maj. Roger Paxton of the Richland County Sheriff's Department said of the county jail. "We check on inmates every 10 minutes. If we feel it needs more, we'll do more." " -------

The county jail system houses an average of 250 females a day. In the past eight months the percentage with mental problems - which can range from ''nervousness'' to major disorders, said Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Barnett - has been as high as 88 percent. The number of females on suicide watch has ranged from 8 to 20 percent.-----------

Ohio's jail are nice, but really we don't run around keeping every idiot on suicide watch.
