Character Summary Edit

Prisoner #45M242. Convicted March 2, 1945 - Murder in the first degree, criminal possession of a controlled substance. Sentence: 110 years, up for parole in 60.

One of the oldest inmates in Oswald, having spent 52 years of his 110 year sentence. He was convicted for strangling his prostitute to death and having possession of opium.

Plot Summary Edit

Season 1 Edit

He is seen in Sister Pete's drug rehabilitation program where he explained his crime to the other inmates in the program. According to Munson, he has been clean for 5 years, 3 months, and 6 days but has quit seven times over his 52 year time span in Oz. He was decorated with the Purple Heart for valor and claims to have become addicted to opium during his service in Asia.


Young Munson as seen in his crime flashback.

When asked by Hill as to why he murdered his prostitute, Munson states that he wasn't thinking, was overcome by a delirious lust, and believed that he was acting out of affection. He is only 8 years away from his parole date - his parole date being in 2005. It can be assumed that if Munson stayed out of trouble and was still alive, that he was paroled and released from Oz in 2005.

Kill Count Edit


  • Unnamed Prostitute: Strangled her to death during a drug-induced delirium. (1945)

Trivia Edit

  • Richard Hamilton died in 2004. Which means that if Munson is still alive, that he outlived his own actor.
