Corrections Officer Daniel Nagle was stabbed to death by an inmate at the McConnell Unit in Beeville, Texas.

Officer Nagle's body was found in a hallway between two recreation rooms in a minimum security area. The weapon that was used was a homemade eight-inch sharpened cylinder rod.

The inmate murdered Officer Nagle as revenge for not being allowed to carry a sack lunch into a recreation yard. On April 23, 2002, the suspect was found guilty of capital murder and sentenced to death. In January 2012 his appeal of the sentence was denied by the 5th U.S. Circuit Cout of Appeals.

Officer Nagle had served with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for three years. He was survived by his wife and three young children.

It is a sad and tragic fact that some of our brothers holding that thin blue gray line, have given all to maintain it. But your ultimate sacrifice Officer Daniel James Nagel will not be forgotten. You will always stand proud and beside your fellow brothers as they continue to maintain that Blue and Gray line. RIP Officer Nagel
