Roy S. Bujol

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.

Despite being mortally wounded, Warden Bujol, with the help of several trustees, was able to keep two of the suspects from escaping. He was then transported to the local hospital where he succumbed to his wounds two hours later.

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.

Warden Bujol had served with the agency for 2 years. He was survived by his wife and two daughters.

I and my partner were the first two officers to get to Roy. We didn't think he was hurt as badly as he was.

Roy ---- were a great guy who was always smiling and had a caring attitude for everyone. Even though I only knew you for a year and a half, you taught me to have compassion for the people I encountered for the next 25 years.

Thanks for being there.
