James Whitey Bulger photograph from arrest

This article appeared in Bloomberg News.

Accused murderer, racketeer and former FBI informant James “Whitey” Bulger, captured with a stash of cash and guns after 16 years on the run, was one outlaw his South Boston neighbors thought would never be found.

Bulger, 81, was in the FBI top ten most wanted list, and was wanted in connection with 19 murders as leader of the Winter Hill Gang. Described by the government as a “major organized-crime figure from South Boston,” he was arrested yesterday in Santa Monica, California. Many speculated that he would never be found until he died of natural causes.
