Warden Roy Bujol was fatally stabbed when three inmates attempted to escape from the parish jail. One of the inmates attacked Warden Bujol with a shank and stabbed him in one of the main arteries of his heart.

The suspects pled guilty to second degree murder. The 22 year-old inmate who stabbed him was awaiting trial on a murder charge. He was charged with the murder of a nurse he had abducted from the parking lot of a hospital where she worked.
