Wild Speculation Open Thread

50 years ago today, Clarence Anglin, John Anglin and Frank Morris escaped from Alcatraz Prison.

They were one of only two groups of inmates who escaped and were neither caught nor killed.

A report in Sunday’s New York Times has a write up of the events and recent work on the escape that suggests they may have in fact successfully survived their escape.

So what do you think happened to them? I’m willing to believe they survived and the floating raft was their way of taunting authorities, which would make sense giving how clever they were managing to escape.

What does this have to do with Georgia, you might ask.  Well, the Anglin brothers are from Donalsonville and the trio (as well as a fourth who reportedly backed out at the last minute) did time at the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary.

    JOhn Anglin had an ‘O’ in his name=O
    Clarence and John were ‘B’rothers=B
    Clarence Anglin had an ‘A’ in his first name=A
    Frank Morris has a ‘M’ in his name=M
    They all escaped from ‘A’lcatraz=A

    Coincidence or conspiracy? You tell me.
