Beasley said as inmates Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose ran toward him, he thought of hugging his wife and kids — “ ’Cause I knew they were not going to have their daddy anymore.”
Beasley didn't make eye contact with the men, just got out of his green Honda Civic and waited. He heard the car drive off, dropped to his knees and prayed, and then went to a nearby store and called 911.
He learned later two guards were killed.
“I am very sorry they lost their lives,” Beasley said. “I can't imagine what their families are going through. Why they left me, I don’t know.”
The victim says he's still haunted by what happened that day.
