ANAMOSA, Iowa (KCRG) - Six out-of-state security experts are investigating the murder of two prison workers in Anamosa.

Corrections officer Robert McFarland and nurse Lorena Schulte were killed last month. The murders happened as two inmates attempted to escape the prison, but were unsuccessful.

The Iowa Department of Corrections confirmed the six security experts are from South Dakota and Minnesota. They’re working to review the incident, conditions of the facility and security policies and procedures.

At the end of their investigation they will make recommendations on how the facility can improve its policies and procedures.
