Sheila Sillery-Walsh captured the unknown woman on a visit with her partner Paul Rice. Sited on an island off San Francisco, Alcatraz is said to be one of the country’s most haunted places.
The 48-year-old teaching assistant said: ‘When I glanced at the photo on my mobile, I saw this dark female figure in the picture. I looked at the window again and there was no one in the room.’ She contacted prison staff but none of them recognised the woman in the picture taken with an iPhone.
Were there any women prisoners at Alcatraz?
No. Alcatraz was a penitentiary for incorrigible male federal prisoners.
Other prisons were built for women convicts, though none was commissioned using the
Alcatraz model for incorrigible women prisoners.
Not only were there no women inmates, there were no women at all in the cellhouse. No female guards or
administrators were hired at Alcatraz

If it's photos hoped, it's pretty good. She looks to have a uni-brow and large forehead. Also, what is that on the side of her face?
On January 10, 1935, a severe storm caused a landslide on Alcatraz, causing the Model Industries Building to slide. This marked the start of a series of changes to the structures on the island. A riprap was built around it and it was strengthened and a guard tower added to the roof in June 1936, and the same month the barracks building was remodeled into 11 new apartments and nine single rooms for bachelors; by this time there were 52 families living on Alcatraz Island, including 126 women and children.
