An inmate with a strange, if not scary, skull tattoo on his face has escaped from a work crew in central California.
Authorities identify the escapee as 27-year-old Corey Hughes who was discovered missing from his work crew near Interstate 5 in Stockton on Monday afternoon. The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office made the confirmation of Hughes’ escape.
Hughes was serving time on a weapons charge. He was already due to be released in February next year.
The sheriff’s office released a photo of Hughes. He is sporting blonde hair. The most distinguishing physical mark of Hughes is obviously a tattoo on his face that resembles a skull. The skull tattoo appears to be homemade.
It is not yet clear how Hughes exactly pulled off the daring escape, and who may be responsible for the security lapse that made his exit possible.
Any information or lead from the public on the fugitive’s whereabouts would surely be appreciated by the authorities. Anyone with useful information is encouraged to call the authorities immediately as Hughes may still pose a threat to others and to society.
