Random Task and Dr. Evil

Joe Son -- who played Dr. Evil's assistant/personal assassin Random Task in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery -- is accused of murder today after his cellmate was found dead late yesterday (Son is currently serving a life term after being convicted of torture and conspiracy to commit murder for raping a woman in 1990 . . . no one ever said justice was fast). Here's the official press release from Wasco State Prison:
WASCO, CA - Officials from Wasco State Prison-Reception Center (WSP-RC) and the Kern County District Attorney’s Office are investigating the death of an inmate as a homicide. The inmate, whose name is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin, was found dead in his cell about 5:50 p.m. October 10, 2011.

The 50-year-old inmate was received at WSP-RC from San Luis Obispo County on June 23, 2011, as a parole violator with a new term for failure to register as a sex offender. He received a 2-year sentence.

Joseph Son, 40, has been identified as a suspect in the case. Son was received at WSP-RC from Orange County on September 16, 2011, on a life sentence with the possibility of parole for torture.
So you're telling me that Son was found in his cell with his dead cellmate's body on the floor, presumably with bruises and/or stab marks all over it? Let's not jump to conclusions here . . . literally a million things could have happened.
