“Whitey” Bulger arrest mugshots released after years as a fugitive
The U.S. Marshals Service on Monday released the mugshots of long-sought fugitive James “Whitey” Bulger and his girlfriend Catherine Greig after they were arrested in California on June 22. They were released after Reuters filed a Freedom of Information request.
Bulger and his companion had been on the lam for years and he is facing charges for 19 alleged murders from the 1970s and 1980s when he ran the Winter Hill Gang in Boston. The 81-year-old Bulger has pleaded not guilty.
He fled in late 1994 after receiving a tip from a corrupt FBI agent that federal charges were pending. Greig followed a short time later and has been charged with harboring Bulger. Some initial photos emerged after his arrest but here are the official U.S. Marshals Service mugshots.
