My name is Luther Casteel, but everyone that knows me calls me "Luke".
I'm 56 years old and was born on the 4th of July in Tennessee. I was raised in Chicago from the age of 7. I have a great sense of humor; I love to laugh and joke. I am a sincere and compassionate man and I'm always willing to help others when I can. I'm pretty much a down-to-earth person and I just try to treat people the way I want to be treated.
I've been in prison now for 13 years and I'm placing this ad in hopes of making some friends. I'm very open-minded and I don't care what your gender, sexual orientation, race, or religion is. If you want to write me, I'll be glad to hear from you and I promise to respond to your letter promptly. People from other countries are welcome to write, as well.
I have a bachelors of science degree along with certificates in various vocational fields like auto mechanics, auto body repair, and welding. Also, I can read, write, and speak Spanish.
I am a former death row inmate; my sentence was commuted to life in prison in 2003, along with approximately a hundred and sixty other men, by outgoing governor Ryan. My crime is murder/attempted murder.
Since I've been in prison, I become a fairly decent artist. I work with all mediums, but my favorite is the plain, old pencil. I do a lot of fantasy art and I like the dramatic effect that graphite can render. I lift weights five days a week to keep myself strong and in shape. I try to stay current with the world by watching the news and reading the papers.
I'm waiting to hear from you!
