Guam - It's been one week since a death threat was made against Department of Corrections Warden Frank Crisostomo and Officer Abraham Santiago.  According to DepCor Director J.B. Palacios they have since identified who they believe were behind the death threat, which came in the form of a letter.

Palacios says the inmates, whose names are being withheld, have since retained the services of an attorney. The letter threatened to shoot Crisostomo and Santiago if the agency didn't lift certain policies relating to the ban on electronic items and dress codes for visitors.

Palacios says the investigation is still ongoing, and that the agency remains on lockdown with partial visitation only for exteriors units at the Mangilao compound.
