California: Did anyone survive the “Escape From Alcatraz”?
Alcatraz, the rock, for over 29 years nation’s most notorious prison. A home for such master criminals as Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly, and its birdman Robert Stroud. Alcatraz stands in the middle of San Francisco’s icy cold bay, a treacherous mound that was the best guarantee that nobody would successfully escape and nobody did until June 11th, 1962. On that night, 3 men broke out of their cell house and vanished into the waves in their homemade raft. John Anglin, his brother Clarence Anglin and Frank Morris, the brilliant mastermind of the escape were never seen again.
10 days later, the authorities discovered pieces of the raft. Did they make it? The debate continues. “Unfortunately, that’s where the story ends. What happened next remains a mystery,” reads a portion of an FBI history of the investigation. Subsequently, the case was closed in the year of 1979.
