Prisoners are not allowed to have smartphones in their prison cells, but somehow that fact didn’t stop 21-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood from uploading a selfie to his Instagram Stories — which are like Snapchat Stories for Instagram, but only last 24 hours — on Thursday, August 10. The above photo from August, 2016, was provided by the Roswell Police Department, which showed Jeffrey after being charged in the murders of two Georgia teenagers. However, it is another photo of Jeffrey, who hails from Roswell, Georgia, that is going viral. According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the photo that Hazelwood recently posted to his Instagram account is a mystery to folks who have seen the photo.

However, the publication reports that nearly 4,000 prison inmates in Georgia were caught with cellphones last year, so it’s plausible that photos would end up on Instagram. Jeffrey’s Instagram account is still active, however, the selfie posted on Thursday, August 10, is now gone. Instagram Stories last for 24 hours, and the photo appears to be taken from inside the prison, with Jeffrey donning a white T-shirt, and sporting a shorter hair cut. Hazelwood received a life sentence for the murder of two teens behind a Publix in Roswell, and is serving out that sentence at Baldwin State Prison in Milledgeville.
