  1. 1. There are cell checks at a prison. Where they hid the tools that were used to make the tunnel?
    2. How did they get paint and cardboard? Mainly the paint?

  2. the movie Escape From Alcatraz is explaining the story exactly perfectly and very detailled, i watched it and recommended watching it because its very exciting

  3. What happened next: In 2018, the FBI confirmed the existence of a letter, allegedly written by John Anglin and received by the San Francisco Police Department in 2013. The writer asserted that Frank Morris died in 2008 and was buried in Alexandria under a different name, and Clarence Anglin died in 2011.

  4. I believe the government and FBI have withheld evidence for years. Since a raft was indeed found and that a Chevy was stolen from the vicinity on the night of the escape, I would not be surprised if the three convicts survived their escape from Alcatraz.

  5. This prison seemed like it was trying to get the reputation for more notorious criminals but the four people who were part of the escape don't even match the profile of that… they were sent there for what seems like petty crimes (in the modern day atleast)

  6. I still can't get over the fact that a 14 year old escaped the prison, and scored almost genius on an IQ test (140 and above is considered genius and the kid got 133)

  7. I have no idea one way or the other, if they were successful in their escape and if they made it to shore, but, I want to commend the artist who created his/her rendition of the vehicle that was stolen, the narrator called it a '55 Chevy but the vehicle shown was a darn good copy of a '56 Chevy, lol. BTW, I really enjoy your stories and to say I've subbed, left a thumbs up, and a tap on the bell, I hope to see more of your stories in the future.
