My name is Joseph Murphy, and I’ll be in prison for the rest of my life. I’ve been here since 1987. First I went to death row and got off after 24 years, now I’m doing life.

I told my story on Netflix on a show called “I am a Killer”, episode 6 “Pyro Joe” of season 2. Then people started reaching out to me in here. I have been locked up for 35 years so all of this is kind of new to me.

I am grateful for life, I love Jesus and I like to write. So please, watch the show, and hit me up on GettingOut. Hopefully Wire of Hope will show you how to get on my email list (GettingOut tutorial available here).

Looking for lots of friends and maybe one Love of my life.

God Bless You.
