A prisoner slain by fellow white inmates at a California jail was a founding father of Public Enemy No 1, a white supremacist jail and road gang, regulation enforcement and watchdog teams confirmed Friday.
Devlin “Gazoo” Stringfellow, forty eight, helped begin the group often known as PENI, which grew from the Southern California punk music scene within the Nineteen Eighties into what the Anti-Defamation League calls a hybrid, racist, skinhead gang.
Stringfellow was stabbed repeatedly in an train yard Wednesday by two different prisoners armed with inmate-made weapons, stated Lt. L.A. Quinn, a spokesman at California State Jail, Sacramento.
He recognized them as Jacob Kober, 29, and Stephen Dunckhurst, forty nine. No costs have been filed, and specialists couldn’t instantly say if they’re gang members.
Quinn stated officers did not have a motive.
All members of PENI have been beforehand made members of the Aryan Brotherhood jail gang, stated Matthew Buechner, a former gang investigator with the California corrections division.
Stringfellow was the second excessive-profile gang chief slain on the most safety jail east of Sacramento in recent times.
