Florida, USA – A murder suspect’s name was wrongly spelled by police caused an innocent student to shame in Google, but he only realized it after he Googled his name, as published at WTSP on Wednesday.

According to the report, a student of University of Florida said he was stunned after he learned that he has been convicted of a crime that he did not commit, which occurred last September.

Zachary Garcia said on the news that he was shocked that upon searching at Google, he saw his name and photo in an article that says he was convicted of a felony murder.

“I was just very shocked and angry that someone put my name up there and said I did something I didn’t do.” Zachary Garcia added.

It was later learned that the investigators made a mistake in spelling the first name of the real suspect, and no one have seemed to notice it even after posting the name in Google.

Apparently, the Sheriff’s Office in Polk County should have written ‘ZarcheryGarcia instead of ‘Zarchary’ Garcia, the correct spelling of the real murder suspect’s first name is ‘e’ and not ‘a’.

“Everybody makes mistakes. I work at Publix and I might get somebody’s sub (order) wrong. But for somebody to get (the photo of a suspect) wrong…it’s not a sandwich, it’s somebody’s life you’re playing with.” The ‘clean’ Garcia said.

Meanwhile, Zachery Garcia, the real murder suspect was said to have been involved in a Davenport attempted robbery last September 23, with three other teenage boys.
