Imprisoned Doctor takes His Own Life

A doctor, in prison for sexually abusing his patients, has kept a promise he made to his victims. The former New York Physician promised to kill himself if one more of his victims went to police to report him… and one did.

Last night officials at Riker’s Prison found 67 year old Ricardo Cruciano hanging from a home-made noose after stepping off a chair in the prison shower, an apparent suicide. Cruciano had been convicted for abusing 6 of his former patients, and at his sentencing, he told the jury he would take his own life if any other victims came forward.

One did… and he did.
