Stanziano said that the claims of attempted suicide had “been blown out of proportion.”
“I keep hearing that,” said Stanziano about the alleged attempt. “I think he’s on suicide watch because I think that’s standard procedure when someone is arrested for a crime such as he’s charged with.”
Keith is being held without bond and is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday, Oct. 16 in Boyle Circuit Court. Family members said they will be there.
Lisa Moore, a former parishioner at Main Street Baptist Church when Keith was youth director there, said the news of his arrest stunned those who knew him.
“My dad would go on visitations with him...we’re trippin’—he was a good guy,” Moore said.
