Case 68

Escape from Alcatraz

Following the failed 1946 escape turned violent siege, safety measures at Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary were made even more stringent and inmates were kept under harsher controls. In the decade following the Battle of Alcatraz, no further escapes were attempted.

Then, in December 1961, four Alcatraz inmates began discussing ways they could break free.
