Pentridge Prison housed many of Australia s most infamous prisoners. A lot never saw freedom again. A lot of the prison now is a housing estate .The facade and sections of the prison still remain. Tours are run through the remaining prison area. Its a dark cold creepy place.The cells are extremely small cold inhumane living quarters. A real deterrent for those contemplating breaking the laws of the time.
Several Months ago a group of lawyers were taking the tour. There was a bit of banter.Boys being boys until they went to enter one of the cells.When all of a sudden there was a blood curdling scream. GET OUT! Chilling the entire group they were taken aback .The cell was the former home of one of Australia s notorious prisoners .Mark Chopper Reid.
