Re "Officials Stymied Corcoran Probe, Investigators Testify," Aug. 4: The conduct of former Director of Corrections James Gomez regarding the investigation of murder and mayhem at Corcoran State Prison is beyond excuse. A plebeian citizen would be charged with murder as an accessory. If he was not an accessory to the Corcoran murders, he did have an oath of office to uphold, which precludes interfering with murder investigations. Additionally, it is illegal for any citizen to impede such investigations.
