Alcatraz is located in the San Francisco Bay. For more than 30 years, Alcatraz was considered one of the fiercest prisons in the world. If you were sent to that secluded prison island, you were there until your time was up. No escapes were possible. Or so people thought. In June of 1962, however, three inmates decided to risk it all. In doing so, they became the only people to have ever escaped the island. How did they do it? Where are they today? Let’s take a closer look at one of the prison industries most famous mysteries.
The Mystery Resurfaces
The three prisoners initially ‘escaped’ from Alcatraz in 1962. No bodies were ever found and nobody was ever captured. That left authorities to believe in one of two scenarios: the men truly escaped and stayed hidden for 50 years or the men died and washed away, out to sea. While both outcomes seemed to settle the mystery, a letter in January of 2018 would change everything.
