MONTGOMERY, Ala. – When a person is convicted of murder, the victim’s family usually believes that justice has been served.
However, a family in Alabama says the man convicted of murdering their loved one has been able to connect with friends online.
Mushat says she couldn’t believe it when she saw her brother’s killer live streaming from inside prison.
Devin Williamson was convicted of shooting and killing 25-year-old Jervarin Mushat on Christmas Day in 2011.
Using the name Premo Williamson, Mushat says he went live for days using the app Periscope.
Several times, she says he asked viewers to send money to his Paypal account and even created his own GoFundMe account. The account was later deleted by the site.
“He killed my brother in front of me, his children, my momma, my grandmomma and the rest of my family. That was there, and he did it on Christmas Day. Don’t nobody need to be supporting a murderer,” Mushat told WSFA. “We left this up to the state of Alabama for him to go to Department of Corrections to pay for what he did, but he don’t look like he having a hard time.”
Officials say once they learned about the contraband, Williamson was transferred to a higher security facility.
