Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger killed in West Virginia prison

Notorious mobster James "Whitey" Bulger was found dead in federal prison on Tuesday, according the Associated Press.

"It marks the full circle of a awful life", Lehr said of the 89-year-old former mobster.

Bulger was moved to a West Virginia prison on Tuesday morning.

Bulger had been serving out his life sentence in a federal pen in Florida until last week, when he was transferred to one in Oklahoma City. and then recently arrived in Hazelton.

According to the United States Department of Justice, Bulger was found unresponsive around 8:20 a.m. Officials attempted life-saving measures, but Bulger was subsequently pronounced dead.

No employees were injured in the incident, but the area was understaffed, Heldreth said.

The circumstances of this week's transfer remain unclear. He declined further comment.

A jury convicted Bulger in 2013 on 31 criminal counts for his involvement in 11 murders across the country during his time as leader of the Boston-based Winter Hill Gang.

The blood-thirsty Bulger ran Boston's powerful Irish mob, the Winter Hill Gang, while simultaneously working as an informant for a local Federal Bureau of Investigation agent.

Prosecutors said that Greig had numerous opportunities to leave Bulger or report him, but she never did. The statements of victims chronicled some of the darkest years of Boston history.

She admitted identity fraud and harboring Bulger in 2012, and is now serving time in a Minnesota jail. "At times, I wish we were watching a movie, that what we were hearing was not real".

Bulger sat mute during most of his closely followed trial, but occasionally livened things up by flinging obscenities at witnesses who displeased him.
