Deputy Keeper Edward McManus succumbed to injuries sustained two years earlier when he was seriously injured after being attacked by an inmate in the 4 Wing of the New Jersey State Prison in Trenton.

The inmate repeatedly struck Deputy Keeper McManus, inflicting serious internal injuries and injuries to his leg and shoulder. Deputy McManus' condition continued to deteriorate and he was forced to retire six months later. He died as a result of the injuries 18 months after retiring.

Deputy Keeper McManus had served with the New Jersey Department of Corrections for 30 years. He was a widower and was survived by his three children.

Deputy Keeper McManus,
On today, the 108th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of New Jersey. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.
