Extracts from this document...


FAMILY MAN MURDERED IN PRISON ESCAPE HORROR Canyon Creek awoke this morning in horror to discover the death of local jailer Burton Duff. During the night he was brutally beaten to death by multiple murderer Orrin Brower, in a desperate attempt by Mr. Brower to escape from jail. Today the town of Canyon Creak is mourning the death of Mr. Duff (26).
