A ‘hot prisoner’ has sent Australian women wild after a callout was put on social media for someone to be his pen pal – as he sits behind bars having been convicted of murder.
A photo of Tjay Tunja was uploaded to a private Facebook group in a hopeful attempt of arranging someone to write to him.
‘No crimes against women or children,’ the post read.
‘Keen to correspond with beautiful ladies.’
While Tunja proved to be a popular choice of pen pal, it’s believed many of the women responding weren’t aware of his criminal past.
In 2011, Tjay Tunja, then 26, was jailed for 24 years after fatally slitting a man’s throat who’d stepped in to break up a neighbourhood brawl
‘I 100% will. Why is he so hot!’ one women commented, with several others saying they were keen to write.
‘I’m more than happy to keep him company,’ said another.
‘Jesus, can I join him in his cell?’ read another comment.
In 2011, Tunja, then 26, was jailed for 24 years after fatally slitting a man’s throat who’d stepped in to break up a neighbourhood brawl.
Rowan Biram, 39, was fatally slashed after he went outside his home in Heidelberg West in Melbourne’s north after a large fight had kicked off in November 2009.

A callout was put on social media requesting women write to the convicted murderer
Tunja had left Mr Biram with a 12-centimetre-long wound to his neck before he fled the scene.
He denied committing the crime but was found guilty in September, 2011.
Tunja appealed the decision in 2013 but his bid was rejected.
He remains in Victoria’s Barwon Prison, a high security and maximum security facility.
He will be eligible for parole in 2030.
