Incredible news today, FBI's Most Wanted crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger has been found and arrested in Santa Moncica, California.
Legendary Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger, who has been on the run for more than a decade, was arrested Wednesday in Santa Monica, multiple law enforcement sources told The Times.
Bulger, 81, has been the subject of several books and was the inspiration for "The Departed," a 2006 Martin Scorsese film staring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson.
Bulger fled Boston in late 1994 as federal agents were about to arrest him in connection with 21 killings, racketeering and other crimes that spanned the early 1970s to the mid-1980s.
The arrest came as the FBI launched a media campaign in 14 cities to help determine Bulger’s whereabouts.
Did you know that Showtime's disturbing, dark, hit show "Brotherhood" is based upon the real-life story of Irish-American siblings former Massachusetts state senator William Bulger and FBI's most-wanted James "Whitey" Bulger?
