Rest in Peace Special Agent James C. Corbin. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting America's steel roadways.

I Pray for Peace for your Family and ancestors. I also Pray that while your murderer may have escaped justice on this earth that his carcass is now being consumed by the hounds of hell. May his screams of pain and agony as he burns in the lake of fire echo around his earthly grave!

Amen.
