C- Murder Hunger Strike Protests COVID 19, Louisiana Prison Deaths and Neglect of Terminally Ill

Corey Miller, known professionally as C-Murder, has begun a hunger strike at Elayn  Hunt Correctional Center- located in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana- in hopes of bringing awareness to the injustice and medical neglect that he and other inmates face daily. “Since the onset of COVID-19, they have continued placing the inmates that have tested positive for the virus in the dorms with inmates that were COVID-19 negative. This has not only spread the virus but has caused abnormally long quarantine times. The COVID-19 positive inmates are put  on a two-week quarantine time initially but the prison adds new positive inmates to the dorm daily, which then  extends the quarantine time to two weeks each day that they add a new case.” Says Miller


Miller goes on to state that “while quarantined, the inmates are on constant lockdown and are not allowed to leave the dorm to receive fresh air. The tests that they provide are not up to standard and they are giving many erroneous results. There are many inmates that have ailments that were not properly treated and as a result, have died after contracting the virus. The families of these men need to investigate their deaths due to improper treatment and  neglect.” Miller is telling the families to act now! “Find out who was in the dorm with their deceased loved ones and get statements from them on how they were treated. Aside from dealing with the pandemic, there are  incarcerated inmates that have terminal illnesses that are not properly cared for and are dying.” Miller urges the families of these inmates to come together and push for a release program for these extenuating circumstances. “I have seen many terminally ill inmates that have been put in front of the medical leave board to try and get a  release to go home and spend their last days/months in the care and comfort of their family’s home, only to get the runaround and pass away in prison while awaiting a decision. “I have seen numerous men die due to illnesses that could have been released (Haywood Ceaser, Joe, and Sampy- both from Cancer) along with many who are fighting the battle today (Michael Jones- Stage 4 Cancer, Robert Guidry- stage three Cancer and Raphael Jenkins- stage four lung Cancer). I know that it’s time that I stand up, no matter how uncomfortable it makes my stay at Elayn Hunt.”  Miller is positive that this hunger strike will cause retaliation for speaking out for himself and his fellow inmates,  but this is the chance he is willing to take. “I believe that the world should know what is occurring here and their  loved ones deserve to know the truth.” Says Miller  

THE COURTS ARE FIGHTING AGAINST RELEASE OF 31 CONCEALED DOCUMENTS Miller is asking for a full investigation and that the press file motions to release documents 

In addition to exposing the inadequate health care and death camps the prison has become, Corey Miller is fighting for his freedom and asking the press and public to demand a full investigation into the corruption that led to his current incarceration. There is evidence in the District Attorney’s files showing an illegal DNA cover-up that was not presented to Miller or his attorney’s and only discovered after his post-conviction relief had already been filed.  He was excluded from being the perpetrator from the beginning and when ran through the CODIS database, a match was found but the District Attorney directed that the allele be taken out of the system and to mark it as a forensic unknown. In addition to this cover-up, the witnesses that the State provided have since come forward and signed an affidavit stating Miller’s innocence. The witnesses stated that they were forced by the police, to give false information and to testify against him in court. In addition, copious amounts of witnessed at the scene had come forward stating that Miller was not the perpetrator of this crime. None of these witnesses were allowed to take the stand and testify. The juror’s notes were also hidden and when directed to supply them to the Judge and Defense team, they failed to provide them, and the Courts never pursued any other actions to rectify this wrong.

There are 31 concealed documents that could free Miller today. Miller states “I cannot have a fair trial if I do not  have all of the documents that were presented to the state.” The courts are fighting against releasing these official documents that also include disciplinary and criminal reports. Corey Miller is asking the media to file a motion for the  31 documents to be given to him and his legal team.  

Corey Miller is asking for the public to stand with him and demand the governing officials listen to his plea and move forward with a full investigation. “Half my life has been stolen by the Louisiana Judicial System and it stops  now!” says Miller 


Corey Miller better known by his stage name C-Murder, is an American rapper, songwriter, and US Army Veteran. He initially gained fame in the mid-1990s as a part of his brother Master P’s label No Limit Records, primarily as a  member of the label’s supergroup, TRU. 

C-Murder made his first recorded appearance as a member of TRU, a trio that included his brothers Master P and  Silkk the Shocker. Their first album, True, was released in 1995 followed by TRU 2 da Game in 1997. During that same year, C-Murder appeared on many of No Limit releases, including Master P’s Ghetto D and the multi-platinum selling “I’m Bout It” soundtrack. In 1998, he released his solo debut, Life or Death. In 1999 he released Bossalini… In 2000, he reached superstar status, first with his appearance in the 504 Boyz smash hit “Wobble Wobble,” then  with his third and most successful album yet, Trapped in Crime, propelled by the commercial success of its C Murder/Snoop Dogg/Magic collaboration, “Down for My N’s.” This album also signaled the launch of TRU Records, C-Murder’s new label. 

In 2002, Miller was arrested in connection with the murder of 16-year-old Steve Thomas and with no weapon or  DNA evidence, was sentenced to life in prison after a jury’s 10 -2 verdict, on August 14, 2009. Miller is serving his sentence at Elyan Hunt a Louisiana State Penitentiary. Controversy surrounding witnesses involved in Miller’s trial came to light in 2018 when two key witnesses recanted their statements, claiming they had been pressured into testifying against Miller by authorities. Miller maintains his innocence, and both he and his brother have called for a  new trial.
