    Virgil Kay Newbie



      @AlcatrazIsland Where may I locate information about TELLER, LOUIS EMERY -- 1239 , and his stay in this prison? I am researching both Mr. Teller and his girlfriend, Lora Lee Ritenour, both arrested for banks heists in 1955.I have newspaper articles that go up to 1959.
