Investigations into two recent suicides at the Licking County Jail have been completed.
 

Sheriff Randy Thorp says an internal investigation revealed that his staff followed policy and procedure concerning the two incidents.

An external review conducted by the Bureau of Adult Detention found there were not any violations of state minimum jail standards relative to the care of the inmates.
 

On January 29th  Torin Dickie of Newark was found dead in his cell of an apparent suicide.

Days later 28-year-old Quichea Lewis of Newark was also found dead in her cell after a suicide attempt.
