Report: Man Charged in Camac's Death Threatens Suicide

The man accused of killing trainer Bob Camac and his wife at their Salem County, N. J. farm last Thursday was being evaluated as to whether he should be transferred from the county jail to a mental health facility after authorities said he was threatening to kill himself, it was reported Tuesday by Today's Sunbeam, a local newspaper.

Wade M. Russell, 36, Camac's stepson, had threatened to jump from a second floor railing in the jail and corrections officers found a sheet "hanging in an unusual manner in his cell," according to the newspaper. Russell currently is in an "administrative segregation watch," meaning that he has no interaction with other inmates and is under close observation by officers and medical staff. He had been on a suicide watch over the weekend but was taken off.

Bob and Maryann Camac were found dead early Thursday morning on the back porch of their home, located on their farm in Oldmans Township. Russell was charged with the double homicide on Friday.
