Murderer Inexplicably Tattoos Confession On His Chest

Murderer Inexplicably Tattoos Confession On His Chest
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department

Los Angeles-area gang member Anthony Garcia killed John Juarez in front of liquor store back in 2004.

He commemorated the occasion with an elaborate chest tattoo, which contained the phrase “Garcia Kills,” as well as a detailed etching of the crime scene, including the Christmas lights that adorned the liquor store where he committed the murder and the direction Juarez’s body fell when he was shot.

In 2008, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide investigator Kevin Lloyd spotted Garcia’s tattoo as he was going through a book of photos of local gang members. Lloyd made the connection between the tattoo and the liquor store murder, which had become a cold case. Eventually, an undercover cop was able to coax a verbal confession out of Garcia, leading to a murder conviction.

Garcia, who will be sentenced next month, faces 65 years to life in prison.
