Katie's Revenge

Child molesters are well hated in prison. Anthony Ray Stockelman is a convicted child killer who will likely spend the rest of his life in solitary. The reason? He has the name of his victim on his forehead for all other inmates to see. Stockelman was sunk by his DNA on a cigarette butt near the crime scene. The DNA was an ironclad case against him and he plead guilty in exchange for having the death penalty taken off the table.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment plus 30 years, but his problems were just beginning.

Stockelman’s time was going to be harder because someone related to his victim was also imprisoned at the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility. Katie’s cousin, 22-year-old Jared Harris had gone to prison in 2000 for burglary and was in the same wing as Anthony Stockelman.
Harris and another inmate gave Stockelman a choice. He could either be stabbed to death or have a tattoo on his forehead. He choose the later. Anthony Ray Stockelman has remained in a private cell. He eats alone, has recreation alone, and keeps to himself when possible. A medical practitioner has since agreed to remove the tattoo free of charge. Some might consider that a shame.
