  • Inmates forcibly tattoo victim's name into child killer's forehead

    http://www.wthr.com/story/5468772/ch...y-a-marked-man

    Child killer literally a marked man

    Crothersville - Convicted child killer Anthony Stockelman's face and head were unmarked at his trial last year. But now he's turned up at Wabash Correctional Facility with a tattoo on the forehead reading 'Katie's revenge.'

    Katie is Katie Collman of Crothersville, the little girl he confessed to raping and killing last year. The Department of Corrections is not saying who applied the tattoo, which is against prison regulations, or why. They say they are still investigating.

    Katie's dad, John Neace, has his own theory. Wednesday he said, "If I had to guess I'd say it's a statement from the inmates."

    Katie's father says he heard about the tattoo from friends and has no idea if Katie's distant cousin, who is also serving time at Wabash, played any role.

    Neace continued, "When I first saw it I wondered if someone was playing a hoax with these pictures. Then I looked a little bit further and found it was a news channel that was putting his picture out. And I knew it had to be real."

    Terry Gray, a Collman family friend told Eyewitness News, "I figure that probably mister Stockelman was given the choice of a tattoo or facing the same thing that Katie did. In the early interviews they have with him when he was in prison, when he first got there, it was kind of like a vacation to him, wasn't too bad at all. So I'd say he probably has a change of heart about that now."

    At Crothersville kids enjoy a park dedicated to Katie's memory. The people who devoted their time and talent to build the place were shocked at the little girl's killing, but not so shocked about what happened to her killer in prison.

    One said, "I think the prisoners did it to him. I'm surprised he hasn't been killed yet."

    Another commented, "I can't really see himself doing that. He's probably regarded very low with the other prisoners."

    The Corrections Department is also trying to figure out how that photo of the tattoo got out from behind prison walls. They've moved Stockleman to an area of increased security.

    Yup, this kinda stuff happens a lot.

    Hardened criminals who wouldn't think twice about killing an adult would never lay a hand on a child. Such people cannot stand child killers and once C/Ks come into the population, then they're pretty much marked (even without tattoos).

Is there some sort of an announcement when a new prisoner enters the facility, or do the guard disseminate such information, or do the prisoners (or their associates on the outside) go through court records to find this information?

      It just seems to me that it really should not be a prisoner's business why another prisoner is incarcerated.
      They read newspapers, watch TV, and get mail from their friends/family in the public.

      But usually the inmates tell other inmates why they are incarcerated.

        As much as prison facilities try to keep such information under wraps, word still does get around. Perhaps the inmates get their info from friends who are on the outside.

            When an inmate enters general population, the other inmates will insist on seeing his papers (charges/commitment papers).

              When it's a famous case, TV does the trick. We had a child rapist in one pod, and his story came on the news with him and the other inmates just standing there watching it. Almost had a riot. He was PCed for the rest of his stay. The whole jail knew who he was overnight.

                      Rapist and child killers are pretty much at the bottom of the food chain I guess. This guy is both so, he kinda deserves it.

                        According to several news sources, Katie's cousin, who was serving a term in the same facility, has been charged with tattooing the scumbag. Personally i think they should give hm some good time credit.

                            Well, you can't just turn a blind eye.

                            Two days in the hole sounds about right...

                              Not legally

                              Some agencies are allowing email to/from inmates. This is HIGHLY regulated and in essence doesn't have the inmate ACTUALLY connected to the Internet------------ The specifics of the systems are freely available on the internet if you are really interested knowing how they work . http://thegazette.com/2011/08/05/jail-mail/

                              Cell phones are expressly prohibited inside prisons (even for staff)-----------MANY states make it a felony to bring a cell phone into a prison by ANYONE....................... Yes there are cell phones in prison and yes prisoners have cell phones in prison.
