SCRANTON — The FBI is investigating exactly what led to 34 year old Eric Williams' death.
Investigators said the corrections officer was killed by an inmate at the Caanan Federal Penitentiary in Wayne County Monday night. Those who knew Williams cannot believe it.
“He was a great guy, he was a good kid. He was a kid as far as I’m concerned, he was a good kid,” said Captain Gerald Dennis of Jefferson Township Ambulance.
While the feds try to uncover exactly what happened and why, Dr. Harry Dammer at the University of Scranton said Williams could easily have been a random target. Dr. Dammer is a professor of criminal justice.
