Seward Spotlight – Spring Creek Correctional Center

Spring Creek Correctional Center

Located across Resurrection Bay in Seward sits Spring Creek Correctional Center; a maximum security prison that houses over 500 inmates.
One of the most notorious prisoners located here is Robert Hansen, nicknamed the Butcher Baker. Hansen was a serial killer who was convicted in 1983 and is serving a 461 year sentence. Hansen’s story recently made headlines as the story behind his arrest was turned into a movie that was released in theatres last summer. The movie entitled TheFrozen Ground starred John Cusack as Robert Hansen and is based on the true story of Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe’s (renamed Jack Halcombe in the film and played by Nicolas Cage) investigation and arrest of Hansen.
