Juggalo gang member Sentenced to 18 Years in Winlock Shooting


A Winlock man who recently pleaded guilty to shooting his ex-girlfriend in the back on July 18 near Winolequa Park was sentenced to more than 18 years in prison Wednesday.
Joseph M. Lowery, 20, pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree attempted murder in the shooting. His sentencing was scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. The hearing had been rescheduled for 9 a.m. Oct. 1, but was rescheduled again for later in the day Wednesday.
Lowery was sentenced to 220 months, or just over 18 years, in prison with credit for 59 days served. He was also ordered to have no contact with the woman he is accused of shooting after his release.
According to court documents, Lowery shot the woman because she disrespected “the Juggalo family.”
The term “Juggalo” primarily refers to fans of the music group Insane Clown Posse. Law enforcement agencies consider some Juggalo organizations to be gangs.
A 16-year-old Centralia boy was also arrested after the shooting. He was charged in juvenile court with unlawful possession of a firearm and tampering with evidence.

North Carolina Woman Attacked by hatchet Wielding juggalo gang member


The attack happened at 4:30 a.m.

Nightmares can come true: a woman in North Carolina told police she was attacked in her home by an ax-wielding clown.

The victim told the police in Hickory, N.C. that a person wearing a clown mask and a multicolored wig had come by her residence at 4:30 a.m. Friday morning and began to swing his ax at her.

The victim was able to take the mask off the attacker and discover that it was an acquaintance of hers, who then fled the scene. She was not injured in the incident.

Hickory Police Department spokesperson Chrystal Dieter told TIME that there was an “outstanding warrant” against the suspect.

“Any law enforcement officer who comes in contact with the suspect in question will have full ability to arrest him,” Dieter said.

Dieter could not recall any previous cases of attackers masquerading as clowns. But the Hickory attacker would not be the first person to draw on the cultural image of the “creepy clown.” The town of Northampton, England has previously reported sightings of an individual dressed as the clown who roamed the streets and scared citizens.

MUNCIE — Don’t blame a couple of Muncie police officers if they are on the lookout for a pair of musicians dressed as “wicked clowns.”

A Marion man arrested early Friday after causing a disturbance at a southside Muncie home warned two officers he was a “Juggalo” — a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse, a Detroit-based hip hop duo.

Joshua Michael Fosnough, 34, also told the officers “his boys” — Insane Clown Posse — were going to kill them, an affidavit said.

Fosnough — preliminarily charged with intimidation, public intoxication, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct — was being held in the Delaware County jail under $7,500 bond.

He was arrested about 12:30 a.m. after police received a report of a disturbance in the 100 block of East Ninth Street. They reported finding a man — later identified as Fosnough — “being very loud (and) cursing,” according to an affidavit.

According to court records, Fosnough’s criminal history includes convictions for intimidation, domestic battery, residential entry, possession of cocaine and possession of a controlled substance.
