Illinois State Police Special Agent and Appleknocker Alum Jeff Stroehlein spoke to both Civics classes today about his grandfather Gene Clutts, who was a Marion prison guard murdered by an inmate in 1983. Jeff also talked about being a homicide detective. This fits into the course unit on arguments for and against the death penalty.
