Smiley face tattoo, beating leads to two arrests

A smiley face tattoo and a man with blood on his hands were key pieces of evidence that led the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office (CPSO) to arrest two persons this week in a case that involved a savage beating of a man accused of child abuse.

James Don Mulvihill, 311 B.B. Beard Road, Monterey, age 59, was charged Tuesday with four counts of molestation of a juvenile.

The man charged with the beating -- Stanley Vernon Schickel, 44, 218 Bailey Circle, Ferriday – was charged Sunday with false imprisonment, attempted second-degree murder and a probation hold.

CPSO spokesman Vernon Stevens said this morning that officers began to unravel the bizarre case Sunday when they responded to a call to pick up a debit card in the possession of a person living on B.B. Beard Road. Upon arriving at the residence, officers observed a man – identified as Schickel -- emerge from the house with blood on his hands and clothes.

Caught on Camera: Child Molester Gets Beaten Terribly in Jail

9-7-16 Arkansaw:

The video is surveillance footage from the Washington County Jail where an alleged child molester named Kelly Holloway, Mary Reynaga’s brother, gets beaten up by four inmates.

Reynaga is interviewed as saying that she thinks they put people like that – referring to Willis – in isolation if they know they’re a danger to somebody. Holloway was sent to the hospital with a broken nose, where he received ten stitches and four staples. Reynaga said it’s like they allowed the assault to happen the whole time, like somebody could be watching it, because all three inmates attacked him and no one came to his aid until after Holloway was already injured.

The sheriff’s office says one of the inmates had found out that Holloway was being held on a child molestation charge, by tracking a pin number printed on his bracelet. Chief Deputy Sheriff Jay Cantrell is interviewed as saying he can be a target particularly if it’s a child victim involved, as some inmates might dish out some form of vigilante justice.

Cantrell says the guards did not notice the attack until after it was over. The guards can see into the pod and the monitors show what the cameras are pointed out, but they are monitoring so many cameras that things can get out of hand pretty quickly before the guards can be alerted.

Reynaga says her brother is innocent until proven guilty and he should have been protected until his court day. She adds that they have cameras, so someone should have been monitoring things. Cantrell says the sheriff’s office is stepping up efforts to make sure pin numbers stay private. But with limited resources, stopping every fight is just not possible.

Two felony count of child sexual abuse and a misdemeanor charge of threatening to do violence against Holloway were eventually dismissed when a teenage victim could not testify. ...Source.. by

8-31-16 Alaska:

His name is Jason Vukovich, but they call him the “Alaskan Avenger.” His M.O.? Tracking down Alaskan sex offenders using the Anchorage public online sex offender registry. Once he found what he was looking for, Alaskan Avenger Jason Vukovich reportedly showed up at their respective homes in the middle of the night, hammer in hand, to mete out his own particular brand of justice. According to law enforcement, the reign of the Alaskan Avenger only managed to stretch across a few days in June. That’s because Jason Vukovich eventually got busted for busting in the heads of convicted sex offenders with his trusty hammer and fists.

One of Jason Vukovich’s victims, Wesley Demarest, told the local media that he had been sleeping in bed when the Alaskan Avenger broke into his home. Reportedly, his roommate woke him to tell him that there was a stranger in the house, and shortly thereafter, Vukovich began beating him in the head severely enough with a hammer to fracture his skull.
