Most Wanted: How Notorious Boston Mobster Whitey Bulger Evaded Police For 50 Years
Emily Ann Stein at the British newspaper the Daily Mail reports on how Boston mobster Whitey Bulger was able to evade arrest for 50 years.
One of America's most notorious and ruthless gangsters escaped capture by donning disguises, living off hidden safety deposit boxes of cash and serving as a secret informant to the FBI - despite being on top of the their most wanted list.
Massachusetts State Police officer Thomas Foley chronicled his decades long hunt for James "Whitey" Bulger in his new book 'Most Wanted,' telling untold stories of Bulger's life on the lam and how it all began in Boston's Southie neighborhood.
"Whitey Bulger has to be the most cold-blooded killer in Boston's history," Mr Foley writes/ "If he isn't, I wouldn't want to know the guy who is."
