A Texas A&M graduate murdered in 2009 is being remembered with a documentary filmed in his honor.

Rufus Stephens was killed on January 3, 2009 behind a College Station pool hall. A memorial fund set up in his honor helped finance the documentary, "Bridge to War Eagle."

The Emmy award winning documentary is a tribute to the conservation efforts of the War Eagle Creek in Arkansas and will be shown Tuesday night, January 31 at 6:30 p.m. at the Rudder Theater.

Rufus' parents will be at the screening and Mr. Stephens feels the film helps his son's memory live on.

"He was just about to start his own career in wildlife and natural resource conservation and didn't get a chance to make his mark. So this is an opportunity to extend, by a small degree, his legacy." said Rufus Stephens Sr.

The 30 minute screening is free of charge and will start with an introduction from the filmmakers and Rufus' parents.
