Gang Tattoo Leads To A Murder Conviction

Gang Tattoo Leads To A Murder Conviction
Gang member Anthony Garcia spent years adding detail to the drawing of a Pico Rivera liquor store on his chest. Garcia's drawing commemorates a murder scene, complete with a prone Mr. Peanut-figure, riddled with bullets. In gang slang, the word peanut is used to derisively describe a rival gang member.
Unfortunately for Garcia, after he was taken back to a Los Angeles police station on suspicion of driving on a suspended license, a routine photograph of his tattoos helped convict him of the unsolved murder of John Juarez - the peanut he had permanently inked onto his upper body.
