Also one of the two prison guards present when the prisoner "killed himself" was named Childress. Same last name as Ted Childress the sheriff. I think the implication was that Childress was involved in the inmates death to shut him up, rather than Rust having any involvement.
Officer Childress - sheriff Ted Childress - Errol Childress.
this makes sense. Because that was the concern that they have with getting ANY police involved in the end (aside from the black cop who Woody eventually trusts): that the Tuttle's and Childress family are everywhere and have contacts everywhere through law enforcement.
