"I didn't do it. It wasn't me!"
Those were the words Robert McCoy told KSLA News 12 as he was taken into the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility on Wednesday.
Bossier Parish deputies traveled to Idaho, where he was found by police several days after allegedly killing his estranged wife's son, mother and father.
When he was asked about his attempted suicide while still in custody in Idaho, McCoy said he didn't try to kill himself. He was beaten by the guards.

From May 13
Because of his suicide attempt in Idaho, Bossier will take some extra precautions in handling suspected murderer, Robert McCoy. He's accused of killing his estranged wife's parents and her seventeen year old son. McCoy was found in Idaho and held there while he awaits being transported back to Bossier to stand trial. A guard at the jail in Idaho discovered McCoy hanging from his bedsheets. He was treated at a nearby hospital and returned to jail today (Tuesday).
Because of his suicide attempt McCoy will be handled differently in the Bossier Maximum Security jail when he returns.
The big difference is monitoring. Mccoy, who is considered a high risk inmate, will be monitored all day every day, until doctors say different. Because he waived extradition, and the misdemeanor charges were dropped, McCoy will end up in bossier a little quicker, possibly by the end of the week. When deputies bring McCoy to the Bossier maximum security jail he'll be held in a separate part of the jail, in what's called "administrative segregation". "When he comes of course, he is a high profile inmate, he is a high risk inmate", says Ed Baswell, Spokesman for the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office.
In a few weeks McCoy could be moved out of segregation and into general population, but that would be contingent on an evaluation from a doctor.
