Here in New York, another person has died at the Rikers Island jail complex — the 12th so far this year. The New York Times reports Ricardo Cruciani was found Monday morning, sitting in a shower area with a sheet around his neck. The 68-year-old died about an hour later. His attorney had reportedly alerted Rikers officials to put him on suicide watch. Cruciani was a former neurologist who was convicted two weeks ago of sexually assaulting and raping at least six of his patients.
