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.
