THE FBI have reopened the cold case into three Alcatraz Prison escapees after receiving a letter claiming to be from one of the trio. Brothers John and Clarence Anglin, along with fellow inmate Frank Morris, are believed to have died after tunnelling out of their cells and vanishing into the cold, rough waters surrounding the now-defunct island penitentiary in 1962.


Alcatraz News Source





Sent to a San Francisco Police Department in 2013, but made public this week, it goes on: “I escaped from Alcatraz in June 1962 with my brother Clarence and Frank Morris. “I’m 83 years old and in bad shape. I have cancer ... Yes we all made it that night but barely.”


So, what do you guys think? Real? Certainly seems legit? Although a little rough?

When I lived in SF there was a triathlon or some kind of race that started off with a swim from Alcatraz. So it's doable.

Why not? Especially if you had something to float on.

This is actually a pretty old story. "Unsolved Mysteries" did a segment on it back in the 1980s. It has always been assumed that they probably drowned.

Apparently the author of this letter is willing to prove it by offering a deal to the cops.



He then aims to strike an astonishing deal with the FBI, writing: “This is no joke. “If you announce on TV that I’ll be promised to first go to jail for no more than a year and get medical attention, I will write back to let you know exactly where I am.”


I say they should take the deal, they should be able to prove 100% if it is him or not.

It must be a 100% proof UFO letter.

I'm pretty sure at least the Anglin brothers made it, there is photo of them in South America from the 70s
