The Whitey Bulger Trial: John Martorano Ends His Testimony Against Ex-Boss Whitey Bulger With A Smile

Laurel J. Sweet is covering the Whitey Bulger trial in Boston for the Boston Herald.

John “The Executioner” Martorano walked out of James “Whitey” Bulger’s life forever today without so much as a polite glance back — but grinning like the cat that ate the canary.

“Couldn’t care less,” Joe Martorano, the ex-enforcer’s cousin, said afterward of Martorano’s feelings about seeing his former Winter Hill Gang confederate for the first time since 1982, and testifying against him for three days as the first of the government’s three star witnesses from Winter Hill’s axis of evil — John Martorano, 72, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi, 78, and Kevin Weeks, 57.

“He wants to live his life now,” Joe Martorano said. “He wants to be what he has always been: a good guy, taking care of his family. Whatever happens after that happens.”
