"My heart is still in my soles of my shoes today," Department of Corrections Commissioner Greg Dozier spoke about murdered correctional officers Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue. "They are family."

The two officers were transporting inmates in a bus along Hwy. 16 in Putnam County when prisoners Ricky Dubose and Doonnie Rowe allegedly got through the front gate, shot the guards, and escaped. A massive manhunt was launched as their families began to mourn.
