What Do You Think?

When people go to Alcatraz to visit now a days they think its haunted. This is because in one of the solitary confinement rooms you get put in if you are disobeying or the worst of the worst, a guy reported someone in there with him about 3 in the morning during his time on Alcatraz and the next morning about 6:30 he was found dead with strange marks on his neck. Could this be a spirit or just a suicide?

The Big Escape!

in June of 1962, three men broke out of their cell house and disappeared into the bay in a homemade raft. Frank Morris, the brilliant mastermind of the escape, as well as John Anglin and his brother Clarence were never seen again. But Patrick Mahoney, who ran the launch that traveled between Alcatraz and the mainland, has some doubts he said “I felt that they didn’t make it, but I thought we’d find a body. We didn’t find a body.” In the many years that have passed since that June night in 1962, no one has reported seeing Frank Morris, John Anglin, or Clarence Anglin. They may have beaten the odds, and survived their escape from Alcatraz. So do you think they escaped or died at sea but never was found?

Al Capone

Al Capone also known as "Scar face" because of his scar from a knife that cut him when he was quote "flirting" with a guys sister. Al Capone is a business man he makes alcohol and murders people who are on his bad side for a living. Al Capone didn't want to be known as a criminal because he appears to be a nice business man who doesn't want trouble. Although when witnesses see the murder they get paid to keep quite, but because of this he is never put to jail because everyones afraid to testify against him. If they did testify they would be next on the list to be dead. Eventually he got sent to jail but still had people killing the people he needed dead. After they found this out Al Capone was sent to Alcatraz. He died in Alcatraz.
