We re on the web www.panews.com4a port Arthur news sunday december 19,1999 guard killed at state prison unit Beeville Texas a investigators believe they will quickly identify the inmate who stabbed a Mcconnell unit prison guard to death with a sharpened Rod a prison system spokesman said saturday. A we have a Good Lead on the assailant a said Larry Todd a spokesman for the Texas department of criminal Justice. A a we re very optimistic Well find the person who did a lock Down continued saturday afternoon at the prison about 50 Miles Northwest of Corpus Christi where officer Daniel Nagle 37, was killed about 3 45 . Friday. It was the first deadly attack on a Texas corrections officer in 17 years. A supervisor found Nagle lying in a Pool of blood in a hallway after hearing what sounded like a struggle Todd said. The guard had been stabbed multiple times and efforts to resuscitated him failed. A thin Metal Rod a like a welding about 6 to 9 inches Long with a sharpened tip was found near Nagles body Todd said. A rag wrapped around one end of the weapon served As a handle. Several inmates were working in an adjacent Craft shop but none were near the downed officer Todd said. Those inmates and others Are being interviewed by internal affairs officers he said. The attack appears to have been planned Todd said but he declined to speculate on the motive. Nagle who had worked at the prison since june 1,1996, was president of the Beeville chapter of the american federation of state county and municipal employees which represents corrections officers. He was an advocate of higher salaries for corrections officers and warned that the current Low pay led to Short staffing and dangerous working conditions. A the reason we re underpaid is people done to understand what a going on a he told the Dallas morning news in october. A you have police officers on the Street to arrest these people a they have the most dangerous jobs in the world supposedly. But once they arrest them and they go through the system they re done with them. We on the other hand put up with them for the rest of their the pay for Texas corrections officers is Well below National averages ranging from $21,744 to $26,724, compared with the 1998 National average of about $34,000. The Texas prison system is Short about 1,200 officers. Corrections officers rallied this month in Austin to draw attention to the problem. But Todd said Short staffing probably did not play a role in Nagles death. The last Texas corrections officer killed was in 1982, when Minnie Houston was stabbed to death by an inmate at the Ellis unit. But Todd said this year there had been 1,865 assaults by inmates on correctional officers and other prison staff As of Friday. 14k two tone 1/4 Carat Tow 450 ret $595 14k .12 Carat Tow $250 14k two tone 1/2 Carat Tow 795 ref. $1095 a 2 Mot ref $395 it 3308 Hwy. 365 Nederland jewellers 7242045 manufactured Brand of 10-6 Sal 10-5 motor credit Cord port Arthur news .
