Guam - The Department of Corrections is sanitizing the Minimum Security Unit, where Arlen Feranco was brutally beaten to death.  DepCor Director J.B. Palacios says he was informed that the Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division has nearly completed closing the case.  While the crime scene was turned back over to the agency over the weekend, inmates haven't been returned until the area is completely sanitized. 

DepCor officials are also working on the funeral arrangements for Feranco, as required by Guam law.  "We've also made available the staff psychologist for counseling not only to the inmates. but also to our staff because it's a traumatic event."

Feranco was brutally beaten to death inside his cell.  Steven Slbertson confessed to a corrections officer that he was responsible for the murder last week and has since been charged with aggravated murder and aggravated assault.
