Derek Chauvin, accused murderer of George Floyd, has a camera focused on him round-the-clock, and cops check on his cell regularly all the hallmarks of a suicide watch.
A source at Ramsey County Jail in St. Paul, MN — where Chauvin is detained says Chauvin is in isolation and being watched constantly. There’s a camera in his cell watching him 24/7, as well as guards monitoring the feed 24/7. On top of that, he’s getting checked on in-person every 15 minutes.
That’s not to say officers there believe Chauvin is suicidal, per se — we’re told the 15-minute checks are standard for that section of the jail … but in the same breath, our sources say they want to make sure nothing happens to him while he’s in custody.
Our source says Chauvin will be in his cell 23 hours a day with one hour of rec time in an enclosed area.
