Boston gangster James Whitey Bulger killed in prison: Boston Globe


James “Whitey” Bulger, who lived a double life as one of Boston`s most notorious mobsters and as a secret FBI informant, was killed after being transferred to a federal prison in West Virginia, the Boston Globe reported on Tuesday, citing two unnamed officials.

Bulger was 89 and serving a sentence of life in prison, and had recently been transferred to the high-security Hazelton penitentiary in West Virginia, according to NBC News, which also reported the death but did not specify the cause.

Henry Brennan, a defense lawyer for Bulger, said in an email he could not confirm or deny the reports. Officials at the Federal Bureau of Prisons did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
