Mark David Chapman prison mug shot from 1998

We're not sure if this can really be called a "mug shot" of Mark David Chapman, since it was not taken at his booking for the murder of John Lennon in 1980. Instead, this is an official inmate photo from the New York state prison system, taken in 1998. Chapman was 43 years old at the time. The prison marks him as 5'11" tall, although he seems to touch the 72-inch (6'0") mark in the photo.
