  • FACEBOOKING: Lifer Joseph Kennedy in photo sister of his murder victim found on Facebook.

KARK/Fox 16 reports on a shocking discovery by the family of an Arkansas murder victim:

The man convicted of the crime apparently has posted pictures of himself in prison on Facebook.

Doris Reeves found the photos of Joseph Kennedy when he popped up as someone she might know when she went on her Facebook page. Kennedy is serving a life sentence for the kidnap and murder of her sister Karen Yarbrough.

Reeves found a photo of Kennedy in prison clothing in a setting that appeared to be the Varner Unit, where he is held.

KARK asked department officials how a convicted murderer could update a Facebook profile with photos wearing his state issued uniform inside prison.

"We are still investigating what happened in this case, it is obvious the inmate was able to get an electronic device and get on Facebook," says Shea Wilson.

Inmates are banned from using cell phones. Still, officers confiscate roughly 300 each year. So many, that in 2013 ADC donated a thousand phones to a program for soldiers. 

Kennedy, 33, has been in prison since 2003.
