Escaped inmate with unmistakable tattoo captured

An escaped inmate who made headlines because of his skull face tattoo is back behind bars.

Corey Hughes, 27, was captured in San Joaquin County Thursday morning.

Investigators say they received tips from all over the country when his mugshot was released.

Hughes was housed at an honor farm and escaped from a work crew last month.

He was set to be released in early February on a weapons charge; instead he's now in the San Joaquin County Jail facing more time behind bars.
