San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
Michael A. Coller, Private Investigator and author of "7 Signs of Lying", returns to California to tour historic San Francisco and downtown Los Angeles. Mr. Coller is joined by Sandra Champlain, author of the international bestseller "We Don't Die - A Skeptic's Discovery of Life After Death."
The two are a unique pair whose purpose is to extract truth from lore of historic and often called 'haunted' locations nationwide. They have investigated the famed Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, Massachusetts, the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California and most recently The Queen Mary in Long Beach, California which has been rated by Time Magazine as one of the Top Ten Most Haunted Places in the World.
Tuesday, May 6, 2014, Coller and Champlain will visit San Francisco, California. Eager to visit sites such as Fisherman's Wharf and Golden Gate bridge, the pair will also investigate Alcatraz Island.
Often referred to as "The Rock", the small island called Alcatraz was developed with facilities for a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison in 1868, and a federal prison from 1933 until 1963.
During the years Alcatraz was in use as a federal penitentiary, the jail held some of the most notorious criminals in American history,such as Al Capone, Robert Franklin Stroud (the Birdman of Alcatraz), George "Machine Gun" Kelly and James "Whitey" Bulger.
During its 29 years of operation, the penitentiary claimed that no prisoner successfully escaped. A total of 36 prisoners made 14 escape attempts, two men trying twice; 23 were caught, six were shot and killed during their escape, two drowned, and five are listed as "missing and presumed drowned". On June 11, 1962, Frank Morris, John Anglin, and Clarence Anglin carried out one of the most intricate escapes ever devised.
Michael Coller and Sandra Champlain are both residents of Massachusetts, home to the forthcoming filming of a new movie titled "Black Mass," which features actor Johnny Depp as the notorious gangster, Whitey Bulger, who spent three years in Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary.
Their findings of truth will be freely made available to the public within the upcoming months upon completion of their travels.
