Female Correction Officer Killed by Inmate in Texas Prison: Police


Nick also says that his mother had complained about her unit being understaffed and suspects that she may have been left alone with inmates during the time of the attack.

“I wanted her to get out so bad, and all she wanted to do was make her 10-year mark and retire,” Nick said.

Johnson’s daughter-in-law, Heather, said: “Every officer that gets out and puts on a badge and risk their lives, everyone is important—whether if they’re in a prison or on the streets.”

The investigation conducted by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice is ongoing.
