joe son mugshot Cellmate of Random Task from 'Austin Powers' found beaten to death

When the producers of “Austin Powers” cast Joseph Son as Dr. Evil’s henchman Random Task, they had no idea that Son would one day turn out to be a real life super villain.

Son was incarcerated on Sept. 16; he will be serving a life sentence for felony torture charges connected to a 1990 gang rape of a woman on Christmas Eve. On Monday evening (Oct. 10), prison guards found the body of Son’s cellmate, 50-year-old Michael Graham, who had apparently died of “multiple blunt force injuries.” The death was ruled a homicide. 

Son, a former MMA fighter, is a suspect in Graham’s death; Graham had arrived at the prison on June 23 to serve a two-year sentence for his failure to register as a sex offender.
