Up until a few months ago, LJ was just your average kid from Oak Park, Illinois. He lived in a nice house with his mother, Lisa and step-dad, Adrian. He did his chores. He got good grades. He stayed out of trouble.
Then, his birth father, Lincoln Burrows, lost his final appeal and his date of execution was set. This affected LJ more than he would let on.
The last few months LJ's behavior has completely changed, and he was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Though LJ has stated repeatedly that his father has no influence on him, judging by his recent actions, this does not appear to be entirely true.
LJ is currently in custody awaiting trial for the murders of his mother and stepfather. He is also the prime suspect in the attempted murder of Owen Kravecki, whose current whereabouts remain unknown.
