Looking back on when a brutal, satanic gang terrorized Chicago by torturing and killing women at random in the 1980s. One of the killers, Thomas Kokoraleis, was released from prison in 2019. Many are unhappy that he's a free man.
If you fill a prison with the nation’s most dangerous people, that prison, naturally, will be a dangerous place. And even with Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary's notoriously strong security, those people occasionally strike with sensational violence. We look at some of the most grisly murders that took place at the hands of inmates at 'The Rock.'
A notorious Boston mob boss serving a life sentence for his part in 11 slayings, James 'Whitey' Bulger, 89, was ailing and confined to a wheelchair on October 30, 2018, when he was slain at the U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton. But the details around his death remain murky.
Lee Boyd Malvo, part of the D.C. Sniper duo who terrorized the Washington, D.C. area in a series of murders, is serving life in prison without parole. But Malvo, who was 17 at the time of the killing spree, will soon face a hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court. At issue is whether Malvo's sentence can be reconsidered after changes to rulings regarding juvenile criminals.
