Insiders at the Lynwood Correctional Facility insist Lindsay Lohan is not receiving special treatment ... in fact, some of her closest "friends" are murderers.
Sources say most of the women housed in the area of Lindsay's cell are in for killing someone.
There are reports that the jailers are allowing visitors to have contact -- as in touching -- with Lindsay, but it's not true. It's strictly LiLo behind glass.
And, we're told, don't believe Michael Lohan put money in Lindsay's commissary account -- it ain't there. The only person who fed the kitty is Lindsay's business manager, Lou Taylor.
