Guam - The Department of Corrections continues to investigate the incident involving a death threat made just recently. DepCor officials found a letter specifically threatening to shoot Warden Frank Crisostomo and Officer Abraham Santiago if certain policies were not lifted.

According to agency Director J.B. Palacios, a shakedown was completed inside the fence, at which time they found pornography. He said no weapons or contraband was found in the general population area. Another shakedown was done at the exterior housing units where officials found two cigarettes.

Palacios says they've lifted the lock down on the exterior units and normal visits and privileges have been reinstated. As for the interior units, he says the lockdown remains in effect until further notice.
