Deputy Jailer Glenn Moore was shot and killed during an escape attempt by three inmates in the Pike County Jail during the early morning hours.

One of the inmates had obtained a handgun and shot Deputy Moore when he entered the cell block to lockup another prisoner. The three inmates then stole Deputy Moore's keys and used them to escape from the jail. All three were captured within two days and charged with his murder.

Deputy Jailer Moore,
On today, the 45th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Pike County. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement then that of a Corrections/Detention Officer.
