Bio: Gabe was born in Kingsville, TX and raised the majority of his life in Bishop, TX (Go Badgers!). He moved to Kingsville in his late teens with his family and graduated from H.M. King High School (Vamos ai Brahmas) in 1996.

Gabe loved Jesus. Although he had his ups and downs over the years with his relationship with Jesus, he prayed daily, talked to his children about spiritual things, and encouraged them to follow Jesus and never stray from His path, always wanted them in church on Sunday and youth group Wednesday nights. He is resting in the arms of Jesus now.

Gabe was a program provider at El Dorado Correctional Facility. For years he taught classes to the residents there. He really valued what he did, and saw changes in men that he didnít know was possible. He felt like he was making a difference with the guys he taught and saw them as men who had made some bad choices, but had the ability to change and make themselves better. He valued the friendships he made with co-workers there, he talked about them often, and always had a funny story to tell about someone. He had just received a promotion to unit team manager and was excited about this new position.

Survived by:
& two children

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: El Dorado Correctional KS   USA
Summary: Unit Team Supervisor Gabe Morales died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 during an outbreak among employees and inmates at the El Dorado Correctional Facility.


COVID-19, a flu-like virus, originated in Wuhan, China. Worth a mention, the Chinese Government had a biological research facility in that very province. At this point, it was widely held that COVID-19 was a bat-coronavirus and the first case was discovered in Wuhan in Oct. 2019.

On Dec. 31, 2019, Chinese authorities alerted the World Health Organization of pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China, with an unknown cause. Jan 7, 2020 Chinese authorities identify a new type of coronavirus (called novel coronavirus or nCoV).

Despite deaths and an entire Chinese Province(Hubei) quarantined by the Chinese Government, the World Health Organization(WHO) simply declares a global public-health emergency. Despite this serious understatement, on January 31st, President Trump bans foreign nationals from entering the US if they were in China within the prior two weeks. Despite a large public outcry of racism, this move likely saved 1000's of American lives, it would later be deemed.

After a full blown global infection, and an entire country being declared on 'Lockdown'(Italy), on March 11th, WHO declared the outbreak a pandemic. This same day, President Trump bans all travel from 26 European countries. On Mar. 13th, a US national emergency is declared over the novel coronavirus outbreak.

On Mar. 23rd, New York City confirms 21,000 cases, making it the biggest epicenter of the outbreak in the US. On Mar. 31, more than 1/3 of humanity is under some form of lockdown. On Apr. 2nd, the world passes one million COVID-19 infections.

On April 7th, roughly 95% of all Americans are under lockdown, as 42 states issue stay-at-home orders. The entire American economy has ground to a halt. Congress passed laws awarding trillions in grants, loans and other types of assistance to the American working population and businesses.
