Candlelight Vigil Honors Slain Guard

By  | 

The life of slain TDCJ guard Susan Canfield was remembered Wednesday night in a solemn ceremony. Those who knew Canfield, and some who didn't, gathered at the Texas Prison Museum to light candles in her memory.

Canfield was killed September 24th while trying to stop the prison escape of two Wynne Unit inmates. And it's
that kind of commitment that one mourner says deserves to be honored. "They stand on the wall. They stand between the inmates and the inmates freedom. They keep us safe," said Brian Olsen, Texas Corrections Guard Union Representative.
