Herron was attacked after he stopped during the drive to his graveyard shift job as a correctional officer at a prison in Pendleton. Authorities say Herron came upon a car parked along Oregon Hwy. 11 and pulled over to help. He was discovered sprawled in the highway and later died at St. Anthony Hospital in Pendleton. Joshua Charles Weeks confessed to stabbing Herron and stealing his pickup, said police. (AP Photo/The Oregonian, Thomas Boyd)
