Haunted New Mexico State Penitentiary Offers Halloween Tours Reports Phillips Law Group
The site of one of Americas most deadly prison riots is now opening its gates for Halloween tours during the month of October. At this location in 1980 over 33 inmates were brutally killed along with 12 officers and dozens more injured.
In 1980, one of the nation’s deadliest prison riots took place at the correctional facility resulting in the death of 33 inmates and causing injuries to 200 inmates. During this riot 12 officers taken hostage were also killed, while seven were treated for injuries caused by rapes and beatings.
The main unit of the penitentiary was closed in 1998 and is now called the Old Pen. This area was opened for tours for the first time in February 2012. These tours become so popular that the corrections department decided to open the facility for tours once again on Friday.
All money from the ticket sales will be used to turn the Old Pen into a museum.
At Phillips Law Group, our New Mexico personal injury attorneys can recall this horrific event along with the inmates that were brutally butchered, decapitated, dismembered, hung in cells, and burned alive. This incident will always be remembered as one of the nation’s deadliest prison riots as a result.
