My name's Laura I'm 18, I've never had a "spiritual" experience until I visited Alcatraz for the first time two days ago. It was April 13, 2013. I was excited because I heard it was haunted and was looking to have an experience. Little did I know, the "haunt" would come back with me. I haven't stopped thinking about the odd experience I had for days now.
When I first got to the island, I automatically felt a darkness about it. I knew there was something there. When I first walked in the main building, they gave me a little radio that was my personnel tour guide. I liked to take my headphones off and walk in the silence. There was a certain peace about it, but still very creepy. The whole tour I felt very heavy and an intense feeling of overwhelming sadness. I didn't know what to think of it, I just tried to ignore it. When I got to cell block D, the solitary confinement block, nicknamed the "hole" there were a couple cells the tour allowed you to walk in. I walked in cell 11 solitary confinement cell... I noticed there was a little note on the top right of the cell. As I walked up to the note and looked closely, I read "reserved for Laura" that was my name. I immediately felt a chill up my back. I laughed it off and got my mom and told her about it. She didn't believe me and she got up to sign and took a picture, the picture said reserved for Liam. The thing is in the picture, it was completely different handwriting then when I read it and I have really good eyes I know my own name and I read my own name...
I haven't stopped thinking about it since. I did research on "Liam" and found no information. The only information I found on a "Liam" in the prison was an actor who played in the movie Alcatraz who was a little boy. I found a video of a paranormal investigator who went inside the cell and she was a psychic who picked up an inmate who was "crazy for Satan" she went on about how he was a world master manipulator and did all sorts of rituals within the cell block. I've been praying for days after that experience. I one hundred percent know for a fact that place is haunted. Go see for yourself. The next visit to Alcatraz, San Francisco... Go into the solitary confinement block into 11 and read the note on the top right upper corner. Maybe you'll see your name. Creepy.
I think that will be my last trip to Alcatraz. Please if anyone else has had the same experience please let me know. Thanks.
