Fugitive on run for 16 years wanted in 19 murders, inspired film 'The Departed'

LOS ANGELES — James "Whitey" Bulger, a notorious Boston gangster on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list for his alleged role in 19 murders, has been captured near Los Angeles after living on the run for 16 years, authorities said Wednesday.

The FBI tweeted his capture along with his girlfriend, Catherine Greig, early Wednesday morning.

Santa Monica Police Sgt. Rudy Flores said the agency informed him of the arrest.

Bulger, 81, was the leader of the Winter Hill Gang when he fled in January 1995 after being tipped by a former Boston FBI agent that he was about to be indicted. Bulger was a top-echelon FBI informant.

Great timing. It has been said "Whitey", top FBI informant, was "not meant" to be found, 16 years on the lam? Others had said, "the FBI had to have his address as had been mailing him checks for years". Bulger was said to have had safety deposit boxes all over the world.

Here is all you need to know about the state of affairs in Massachusetts. Whitey’s brother was the long time leader of the state senate and was later appointed by that democRAT state senate to the presidency of the University of Massacusetts. Enough said.

For sure. I thought he was long dead by now.

Interesting thing was his underlings were perfect gentlemen in the business I ran up the street.

You heard the old jail house saying:
"he sang like a canary",
so now it's:
"the FBI tweets"?
Times have changed. :)

I appreciate your attention. Howie Carr was very relevant in the ongoing attention paid to Bulger. Both stories have a different directive.

Thanks..

Howie Carr always mentions FreeRepublic so my toast to him! ;) and the success of his books related to this subject and timely for his book signings.

By any chance, did they arrest the “Former Boston FBI Agent” as well?

81 years old? What’d the FBI do, put an APB on all old geezers with walkers?

Since the FBI protected him as a Confidential Informant for years, permitting him to commit crimes (Does Gun Walker ring a bell for anyone)I doubt they want to see him go to trial and reveal all.

Hope you make to trial Whitey and don’t fall victim to a jail house assassination.
