Steven Duran and his ex-wife talk about the death of their son Joseph Duran at Mule Creek State Prison in September and the surprise they got when they where informed of his demise by a Sacramento Bee reporter in Whittier, Calif. on Friday, January 10, 2014. Joseph suffered from mental illness and had a tracheostomy from an unknown injury. Joseph ran away from home as a teenager and lived in the streets of Los Angeles, the Durans said.
