Noah Patrick Pfarr – Torture in the ‘Burbs – LA Weekly

I got to work on another LA Weekly spot recently with a subject that reads like something from a TV crime drama.

An unbelievable case was recently cracked by LA Sheriff’s Dept, and the finger points at a suburban neighborhood gangster who only a few months ago was hailed by city officials as a local hero for saving a neighbor from a burning house.

The truth, according to neighbors, is that he ran a violent drug pad on their street, and everyone lived in fear. Then he finally went too far, imprisoning a couple for six days in his garage, and torturing the husband — carving and burning a four-letter word into his skin — all because the horrified couple owed him $250!  Yikes!

  1. The postures of those victims is great and that gangster is just plain mean lookin’. Also, nice touch with those rings on his fingers.
