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.
