For more than two decades, fans of recording artist C Murder have been fighting for his release from prison. In his prime, C Murder (real name Corey Miller) was a rising star in the music industry, until he was accused of murder and convicted by a jury in 2003. The case against him was controversial, and many advocates have called for a re-examination of the evidence in the years since his incarceration.
Appeals for Justice and Medical Care
The latest development in the case came when C Murder took to his Instagram page to plead for help. In his post, he revealed that he had been in prison for 21 years, and that he was still fighting to clear his name and regain his freedom. He also described the inhumane conditions of the Louisiana penal system, and announced that he was on a hunger strike to raise awareness of the mistreatment of inmates.
Corey Miller’s Impassioned Plea
“Jan. 17, 2023, marked 21 years I Corey Miller have been in the Louisiana Penal system,” wrote C Murder in a caption. “I have been fighting for my health and freedom against this wrongful conviction and simultaneously fighting for my constitutional rights that were stripped away and violated by the penal system of Louisiana. An appeal was filed late December of 2022 and the DA & Judge of Louisiana has 30 days from Feb. 7, 2023 to answer.” He then detailed his hunger strike that was recently launched.
“Because Conditions in the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center have not improved, I am engaging in a hunger strike that began on February 23rd of 2023,” he said, “to bring awareness to me and all inmates’ neglected and abused at the hands of the Louisiana penal system. It is imperative, NOW MORE THAN EVER, that a quick strategic move is made as my health has significantly declined due to the prison system’s inhumane conditions and I am not getting proper medical treatment. This has taking a major toll on me but I refuse to give up. Please Stand with me.”
C Murder’s post was met with support from a range of celebrities and advocates, including Attorney Ben Crump, Kim Kardashian, Million Dollaz Worth of Game host Wallo, and the Innocence Project. These individuals and organizations have been instrumental in fighting for prison reform and securing the release of wrongfully convicted individuals.
For C Murder and his supporters, the fight for justice continues. As the rapper himself said, it is imperative that a quick strategic move is made to address the issues facing him and other inmates in the Louisiana penal system. With the support of advocates and allies, C Murder remains hopeful that he will one day be able to clear his name and return to his family.
