C-Murder On Hunger Strike Over Inhumane Prison Conditions

March 6, 2023 | By Kali Girl

C-Murder has recently declared that he is on a hunger strike to protest the intolerable conditions and health standards in the Louisiana penal system, reports Hip Hop DX.

Regarding the conditions as “inhumane,” he took to his Instagram account on Thursday, March 2 to speak out on the alleged negligence and mistreatment at the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center. Unwavering in his protest, C-Murder has been on a hunger strike since February 23.

“Jan. 17, 2023, marked 21 years I Corey Miller have been in the Louisiana Penal system,” he wrote. “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.

“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, to bring awareness to me and all inmates’ neglected and abused at the hands of the Louisiana penal system.”

He added that his health is rapidly declining due to the unavailability of access to proper medical treatment.

“Corey Miller continues to suffer with chronic dental issues that have led to significant weight loss and has been denied much needed Thyroid medications because the state of Louisiana says they cannot obtain the necessary medications.”

Nonetheless, C-Murder maintains his commitment to his hunger strike as a means of protest.

“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,” he continued. “This has taking a major toll on me but I refuse to give up. Please Stand with me.”

Currently serving a life sentence, it was approximately 21 years ago when C-Murder (born Corey Miller), was found guilty of murdering 16-year-old Steve Thompson in 2002.
