Did somebody whack Whitey Bulger? (Yeah, NBC says he’s dead.)


Notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger was found dead at a federal prison in West Virginia Tuesday, federal officials said.

Bulger, 89, had recently arrived at the high-security penitentiary USP Hazelton in West Virginia, according to the Boston Herald.

There were a lot of people who wouldn’t mind seeing Bulger — notorious Boston mob boss who went on the lam for a really, really long time — dead.  Then again, he was eighty-nine.  Maybe the shock of the prison transfer (from Oklahoma, I think) was too much.  Hell, it might not even be him.  Wouldn’t be the first time the news was wrong.

PS: My dad was always interested in the Bulger case, in a true-crime sense.  Dad was from South Boston, you understand.  Wasn’t in that scene, but he knew about it, like locals do.
