On August 11, 1934, the infamous Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary opened its doors to 137 prisoners.
The prison was designed to house ‘the worst of the worst’ – criminals who regularly caused problems at other federal prisons and were considered to have no hope of rehabilitating.
Over nearly 30 years of operation, 36 inmates made a total of 14 escape attempts.
Of those, 23 were apprehended, 6 were shot dead and 2 drowned.
The remaining 5 went missing – and are believed to have drowned.
In 1962, Frank Morris and brothers John and Clarence Anglin, attempted the most legendary escape from the facility.
With sharpened spoons, the trio chipped away at the rotting concrete walls.
They fashioned decoy heads (complete with locks of hair from the prison barbershop) and strategically placed them in their beds – to fool the guards.
Their possessions were eventually found floating in the San Francisco Bay however their bodies were never actually recovered! Some speculate they may have been successful in their escape – but it’s extremely doubtful.
