Suspected Murderer Accidentally Released In Los Angeles

Whoops. Next time your boss gives you crap for a little slip up at work, tell him about that one time Los Angeles’ Sheriff Inmate professing unit “accidentally” released a possibly dangerous criminal suspected of murder. Not quite as bad as forgetting to cc him on an e-mail, now is it?

On April 4th, an inmate named Johnny Mata who was “suspected of firing a handgun into a crowd and killing a 34-year-old father in Baldwin Park more than two years ago,” was released due to a clerical booboo. A processing clerk, probably one who is no longer a processing clerk, forgot to issue a hold on the suspected murderer.

Apparently, although a dangerous man has been on the loose for over a month, detectives have been looking for him this whole time and are just now asking Los Angeles at large to bring the 32-year-old criminal back behind bars.

According to Nixle, Johnny Mata is a brown haired, brown eyed Hispanic male who stands about 6’1″ and weighs 197 lbs.

If you have any information, you can call Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives at (323) 890-5500 or anonymously call  LA Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
