Juggalo Jacob Ecker – Murders while in jail on weapons charge – WHOOP WHOOP
23-year old Juggalo Jacob Ecker has been moved from the maximum security area of the Utah State Prison in Draper to the Salt Lake County jail after he killed his cellmate Wednesday evening.
Jacob Ecker was booked into the jail on suspicion of homicide in connection with the slaying of 27-year-old Alfonso Lopez, Department of Corrections officials said Thursday.
The Unified Police Department will head the investigation into the slaying. No motive has been released. Prison officials said they did not know what weapon, if any, was used in the slaying.
Lopez was taken to the prison’s infirmary to be treated following the altercation, but died of his wounds.
Ecker is a documented member of the Juggalos, fans of the Insane Clown Posse rap group who are classified as a gang by Utah law enforcement, according to court documents.
In 2010, Ecker was sentenced to up to five years in prison for possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, attempted aggravated assault and attempted kidnapping, all third-degree felonies.
According to court documents, Ecker threatened another man’s life at the Salt Lake Main Library in March 2010. Police found a hatchet in Ecker’s backpack.
In May 2009, Ecker hit a man and stole his wallet near Taufer Park, 700 S. 300 East, telling the man “today is the day that you die,” according to charging documents.
Well done juggalos .
