Heidi Washington, Director of the Michigan Department of Corrections sadly reports the death of Probation/Parole Agent Candice Dunn.

Agent Dunn, 35, was a passenger in a sport utility vehicle that was returning from a State Corrections Department banquet in Lansing where she was celebrated as the Parole/Probation Agent of the year.

The vehicle, in which she was a passenger, was struck by another automobile traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at a stop sign. Of the eight occupants in the vehicles, five were killed and the remaining three were transported to the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor. They are all listed in critical condition.

The collision remains under investigation by troopers of the Michigan State Police at the Brighton Post and the District Crash Reconstruction Team.

Dunn worked at the Oakland County Office for the past two years. She has been employed by the Michigan Department of Corrections for 12 years. Her sister survives her. Her mother who was a passenger in the vehicle with Dunn was also killed in the crash.

Agent Candice Dunn is gone, but will never be forgotten. EOW: Tuesday, May 9, 2017.
