Widow of slain correctional officer refuses to meet with governor

DOVER — The widow of a prison guard killed during an inmate uprising at Delaware’s maximum security prison is refusing to meet with Gov. John Carney.

In a statement released by her attorney Wednesday, Saundra Floyd instead urged Carney to respond to demands of her family for the autopsy report on Steven Floyd and details on how he died.

“Today the governor’s office called me and asked if he could stop by this Friday to see how my family is doing. But actions speak louder than words, so my answer to that is no,” the statement read. “Just reply privately or publicly to my demand for the release of the autopsy of my husband. How did he die? Did he suffer greatly, or did he pass quickly? Was he tortured? Was he stabbed 100 times, as we have heard? Did he die in a great pool of blood, as is rumored?”

This is so sad. I feel so sorry for this lady and the officer's other family. What they (and he) went through was horrible. I pray for this lady that she gets the answers she needs to help her heal. God Bless her.

A friend of mine from ECI went to the funeral. The prison guard was decapitated. His head was separate from his body when they finally broke into the prison block where they were being held as hostages. It's no secret how he died.

She needs to sue so that the failed and broken prison system that gives all the power to inmates is changed.

4:06 PM I would assume she is based on the fact that she has an Attorney.

Her husband is dead, and it's for sure it wasn't pleasant.

I can see where premature release of the details might jeopardize in some fashion identifying and prosecuting the inmates responsible. That would probably be displeasing to the widow also.

As hard as it sounds, she has plenty of time to file suit.

RIP, Mr. Floyd

I don't know how many there is now at ECI, but before I retired 99% of the Officers there did not want the Administration or their representative to attend or contact their Families if / when they died. They were / are being mistreated / harassed / discriminated against and had no protection from MD DOC / ECI Administration. It was only a job they hated and prayed each day they would go home safe.

The governor wanted to meet with her is just a dog & pony show. It's for PR not out of genuine concern or sorrow for what happened to her husband. She sees it. We all see it. If Delaware correctional system or the governor had really been all that concerned, they would've found ways to prevent the situation in the first place.

She would be a moron not to have a lawyer. If it were your family member who was tortured by criminal goons, wouldn't you have one? What a ridiculous statement.

You go girl! Don't buy the Governor's cover up. The fault lies at the top with understaffing. The prisoner's deserve better. There are some who don't deserve that level of punishment. Lot of prisoners convicted of non violent crimes who should not be there.

This is the first I have heard of this decapitation.

Just because your friend from ECI went to the funeral doesn't mean YOU know he was decapitated. What did they do put a picture of the decapitation in the funeral flyer?

I'm pretty sure your friend from ECI didn't know this CO.

Good for her. It's because of Democratic policies that it occurred.

Some of the prison guards went to this funeral. I attended a get together with two of these guards who worked there. They were told by the guards at Delaware Correctional that the prison guard was murdered and his head was decapitated when they finally broken into this cell. ECI also suffers from short staffing and the Guards and the workers there live with this fear every day. They are working right now with their union to address the staffing issues due to state cutbacks. This was not reported in the news, but the fact is, the guard was murdered and his head was cut off. This was from to guards who attended the funeral.

@ 10:38. Those prisoners deserve nothing of the kind. They are there because of THEIR actions. They do not deserve to just be slapped on the hand and released. They do not deserve to demand to have a comfortable life behind bars. Tv's , weight rooms, movies, great food, sports, and such. Prison is for punishment not a life style.
