Guam - The Department of Corrections is under lockdown after receiving a death threat. According to DepCor Director J.B. Palacios a letter was found near a water fountain outside the infirmary in Mangilao. The contents of the letter specifically threatened to shoot Warden Frank Crisostomo and Officer Abraham Santiago if certain policies were not lifted including the ban on electronic items.

The letter also demanded that the dress code policy for visitors be changed as well, specifically as it relates to women. Palacios added that the anonymous letter is giving DepCor one week to meet their demands. Two inmates who were at the infirmary are currently being questioned.

Palacios says they are also looking at their logbooks to determine who may have been in the area. The letter was found at around 7 o'clock this morning.

Visitations have been cancelled until further notice.
