She remains locked up at a women's prison in Minnesota.

Greig, now 67, pleaded guilty in 2012 to identity fraud and harbouring Bulger. The Oklahoma facility he was held in last week often serves as a temporary stop for inmates in transit.

Notorious Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger is dead, the apparent victim of a slaying at the West Virginia prison where he was transferred yesterday.

The gangster was arrested with girlfriend Catherine Greig, now 67.

Bulger was born September 3, 1929, in Dorchester, Massachusetts. The bureau added him to its "10 Most Wanted Fugitives" list in 1999, offering $250,000 for information leading to his arrest.

Update: According to TMZ, Bulger's death is being treated as a homicide.

The US Penitentiary Hazelton is a high-security facility housing 1,270 male offenders at Federal Correctional Complex Hazelton. In 1994, after learning of an impending indictment, Bulger went into hiding and remained at large for 16 years. Last year, The Times found, the prison had 275 violent episodes, including fights among inmates and major assaults on staff, an nearly 15 percent increase from 2016. He had a kind of Robin Hood-like image among some locals, but authorities said he would put a bullet in the brain of anyone who he even suspected of double-crossing him. They told the gov what it wanted to hear and were rewarded, ' he added.

Michael Donahue was killed in 1982; prosecutors said he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

In 2013, Bulger was convicted of participating in 11 murders in the 1970s and 1980s and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences.
