Convicted Murderer Caught Live-Streaming On Periscope From Prison
A convicted murderer, who is serving a life sentence for killing an Alabama man, was caught live-streaming on Periscope from his Montgomery Kilby Correctional Facility prison cell and the victim’s family is furious.
Via The Huffington Post:
Devin Williamson, 26, is serving life a life sentence for the Christmas Day 2011 murder of 25-year-old Jervarin Mushat.
According to The Montgomery Advertiser, Williamson shot and killed Jervarin Mushat outside a home in west Montgomery. The two men had reportedly argued about money prior to the shooting.
During the live streams, Williamson allegedly asked viewers to send him money for his commissary account and to purchase data for his cellphone. He also reportedly set up a GoFundMe account, which has since been taken down.
“He is sitting there acting like he enjoy himself in jail, and my brother I cannot see no more,” Mushat told WSFA News. “Don’t nobody need to be supporting a murderer.”
The Alabama Department of Corrections did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post on Thursday. A spokesman for the organization told WSFA News an investigation is underway. In the interim, Williamson has reportedly been transferred to a more secure facility.
