A Texas A&M professor is the member of a team that has discovered some tunnels and storage rooms beneath the old federal penitentiary on Alcatraz Island.

Machine Gun Kelly, Al Capone and Mickey Cohen never escaped from the federal prison on the island, but probably would have liked to have known about the tunnels, even if they weren’t in great shape.

Texas A&M professor Mark Everett is part of a team brought in to scan the island with ground radar they will use to reveal more of its secrets — secrets that date back to the civil war.

Everett says people who visit the island will benefit from what they find by learning a more complete history of Alcatraz.
