Child killer literally a marked man (inmates doing a good thing)

Child killer literally a marked man

Sep 28, 2006 06:16 AM EDT

David MacAnally/Eyewitness News

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.

Certainly you can't be implying that the media actually lies to us? (sarc)

Let's hope the prisoners are just letting him walk around with the pain and humiliation for a bit before actually going through with Katie's Revenge.

Why aren't John McCain and pillow-biter Graham on this case?

NYTimes and WaPo not interested in writing about it?

Not to quibble with the man, but that statement would depend on the channel being viewed :)

Come to think of it, if we threw the Gitmo girls in the maximum security general population, they girls wouldn't last a week.

A: It did not happen to terrorists. Their only concern is for the well being of terrorists.

Good for these inmates. I hope none of them get into trouble over it. I hope there are mirrors in jail for him to look at himself.

A friend of mine was a former Indiana prison guard. He once told me that child killers were treated like dog-meat in prison. Guess he was right. No pity for this piece of garbage.

I truly hope they are treated badly. I know many of them are kept in safe protected areas which really bothers me. Their victims weren't given protection and so why shouldn't these monsters face the wrath of the other inmates. I think they ought to be tortured everyday for the rest of their miserable lives. Better yet just kill them. Seems to me we have too many judges and parole boards who let these monsters out to rape and kill again and again. I am just sick and tired of it. We aren't protecting our children anymore. We are allowing these monsters another chance to go out and do it again. I don't believe sex offenders can be rehabilitated. Personally I would like to see them all dead.

"A friend of mine was a former Indiana prison guard. He once told me that child killers were treated like dog-meat in prison. Guess he was right. No pity for this piece of garbage."

This is also true of child molestors and, often times, those who prey on the elderly.

Pretty disgusting when inmates have a better sense of justice than the "justice" department and the "justice" system. The government doesn't have the guts to apply the death penalty, but the inmates have.

Well Pandora I love to see great minds think alike! Someone needs to protect our little girls, and our little boys for that matter! These animals stop at nothing, and it seems more and more now adays that the sex offenders have more protection than our innocent children. Throw these animals in general population and let the biggest meanest inmates have their fun. Make it a sport for all I care. These poor kids are loosing their lives, their innocence, and it is being replaced by fear, and heartache. Not enough is being done to protect these kids, so why are such great steps being taking to protect these animals? Let the parents of the victims abuse, tar, feather, and stone these predators to death. That sounds like justice to me!

I was always partial to the old adage "May God have mercy upon your soul, becuase I sure won't".

Then apply the three S's (Shoot, Shovel, and SHUT UP).
