I did a little digging because I didn't believe it, but it seems he still had a lot of influence and was feared and treated really well by the guards.

And I'm sure everyone else.

I've seen this in person and taken the tour of that prison. It's a really interesting tour if anyone is ever in center city philadelphia.
Around Halloween, they run a giant haunted prison as well. It's very well-done.

it's one of my favorite historical sites ever. his cell is cool, but touring the whole prison is just phenomenal.

Never seen the haunt but the crew that runs it are great guys, super nice and generous with their time and experience. With the haunt they really pay attention to detail...which is always a big plus with me in any haunt.

Cheers!
