Sadistic Sex Offender A Clear Threat To Children

Joel Antonio Barriga

Joel Barriga is no stranger to the law. As a matter of fact, he’s been in trouble throughout his entire life and has a violent history of sexual abuse against children.

When he was in his late teens, Barriga molested four of his neighbors — all siblings, and all between the ages of 4 and 10 years old.

Barriga told the children not to report the vile crimes, but they knew he needed to be punished and reported him anyway. A short time later, Barriga and his friend put a pellet gun up to an opening in the fence surrounding their property, and shot the children’s pet Chihuahua, Tiny, in the chest.

While the dog writhed in pain, yelping and slowly dying on the ground, cops say Barriga danced around, laughing, limping and mocking the dog in its final traumatic moments.

Four years later, when he was just 19 years old, Barriga lured a 14-year-old girl into his house and violently raped her. Afterwards, he threatened to harm her family if she dared tell anyone.

Joel Barriga has no certifiable job skills, and cops tell us he has never been employed. What he does have is a penchant for molesting young children …


Cops: GPS Device No Match For Violent Pedophile

But the brave young girl did tell — and Barriga was eventually arrested, charged and convicted. However, after just a few short years behind bars, he made parole on Feb. 2, 2008.

On Feb. 4, two days after his release, he told the parole board he was a transient — so they strapped a GPS monitoring bracelet to his leg.

Authorities told Barriga to return the following day to provide proof of registration.

Instead, cops tell us he cut off the GPS device and hasn’t been seen since.

Sexual Deviant Most Likely South Of The Border

Joel Barriga has no certifiable job skills, and cops tell AMW he has never been employed.

What he does have is a penchant for molesting young children, and as long as he’s out amongst the populous, no child can be considered safe.

Numerous people have told investigators that Barriga’s headed down to Mexico, though no one has provided authorities with a precise location.

He’s known to travel back and forth between Mexico and southern California, where a number of his family members reside.

Barriga normally has two hoop-earrings in each of his ears, and he has a number of tattoos on his body. On his left forearm, he has the word “Anthony” tattooed in cursive. On his lower right leg, he has a tattoo of two skulls, with a bone protruding from each one. A number of disturbing faces are inked on his right forearm, as well as the word “Radha,” on his right wrist.
