Suspected of Murdering

Prison Cellmate

10/11/2011 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The convicted felon who played  Dr. Evil henchman Random Task in the original "Austin Powers" movie is now suspected of murdering his prison cellmate ... TMZ has learned.

Prison officials say Joe Son -- who's already serving life in prison for torturing a woman in 1990 -- is the prime suspect in the murder of a 50-year-old sex offender, who was sharing a cell with Son at Wasco State Prison in central California.

Officials say the victim's body was discovered yesterday.  The victim was serving a 2-year-sentence for failing to register as a sex offender.

Son is a bad guy -- who was convicted of participating in a brutal Christmas Eve gang rape and torture of a woman who was walking around her community to check out the seasonal lights.

To answer how he committed the crime in 1990 but did a movie in 1997:
He Was arrested in Los Angeles in May 2008. Plead guilty to felony vandalism. As part of his plea agreement, Joe had to submit a DNA sample.

In October 2008, his DNA sample was matched against an unsolved rape from 1990. Due to the seriousness of the crime, he faces up to a 275 year sentence. On 24 August 2011, he was convicted of torture in the rape case. The rape charges had exceeded the statute of limitations and could not be brought to trial.
No he has murder under his belt too.

He needs to be ass raped and then cut up into pieces and fed to all the inmates in the cafeteria. That's the only thing this creature deserves. Does he feel he's above a child molester since he tortured and raped a adult? Put the guy down like the dog he is or lock him in the yard cell with 10 inmates with knives.

Funny Story....I bumped into Joe Son over 20 years ago at a local gym in HB. He was wearing a "Jesus Saves" weight belt at the time. He approached me; I guess because Im Asian and started asking me if I belive in the lord and alot of religious questions. I asked him to leave me alone and that I was their to workout. He then said " Your going to Hell!!!" haha what a Freak he turned out to be!!!

What a POS. I'm surprised he doesn't have his own reality show, since so many seem to want to watch douche bags on tv.
