U.S. Marshals Release Age-Progressed Renderings of Alcatraz Escapees

By Steve Neavling

More than 60 years after three men escaped from the notorious Alcatraz prison, the U.S. Marshals Service is not giving up on capturing them. 

The U.S. Marshals on Wednesday released age-progressed renderings of Frank Morris and brothers Clarence and John Anglin.

The men, who would now be in their 90s, broke out of the now-closed island prison in San Francisco Bay on June 11, 1962. 

They were in prison for committing bank robberies.  

“The ongoing U.S. Marshals investigation of the 1962 escape from Alcatraz federal prison serves as a warning to fugitives,” the agency said in a statement. “That regardless of time, we will continue to look for you and bring you to justice.”

FBI Recreated Decoy Heads Used in Notorious Prison Escape from Alcatraz Island

The original decoy heads.

The FBI has refashioned decoy heads used by inmates in a notorious prison escape from Alcatraz Island more than a half century ago.

The fake heads, which took months for three convicts to make, were placed in their beds before they climbed to the roof and escaped from the island prison in the San Francisco Bay.

Inmates Frank Morris and John and Clarence Anglin slipped into the frigid water and were never seen again.

The daring escape inspired a movie starring Clint Eastwood.

The FBI on Thursday unveiled the near-exact replicas, which were made using a 3D printer at the bureau’s laboratory in Quantico, Va.

The idea was to preserve valuable pieces of American history as the original dummy heads deteriorated.
