'Austin Powers' Villain

Victim ID'd in Prison Murder

10/13/2011 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Thomas Graham
The prison inmate who was allegedly murdered by "Austin Powers" actor Joe Son has been identified ... and authorities tell us he was a convicted child molester.

The victim has been identified as 50-year-old Thomas Graham (pictured above) -- who had once been convicted for committing lewd and lascivious acts on a child under the age of 14.

At the time he was killed, Graham was serving a two-year sentence in Wasco State Prison for failing to properly register as a sex offender.

As TMZ previously reported, cops believe Graham's cellmate Joe Son -- who played shoe-throwing villain Random Task in the original "Austin Powers" movie -- killed Graham in their cell on October 10.

Son is currently in solitary confinement  while prison officials investigate.

Son is already serving a life sentence for torturing a woman back in 1990.

While I'm thankful there isn't a chance of this pedophile getting back on the streets, that guy didn't have the right to take his life. S*** turning on s***...

Master Toddy, a martial arts teacher in Vegas told a friend of mine that he was the person who played "Random Task". Now that the real Random Task actor has proven to be such a despicable, inhumane animal, I wonder if Master Toddy is still making the claim. Odds are against it!

If Thomas Graham has relatives, prison officials face having a lawsuit filed.

Joe Son is a waste of oxygen in his own right & hopefully he'll be kept segregated from now on. I don't even understand why this animal wasn't expelled from the US & sent back to his own country.

Minimum cost to keep an inmate in prison is $35,000 a year. I will gladly send an inmate a couple of soups and bars of soap if they would save me another $35,000. :)
