Bulger, wanted for 19 murders, was captured last night in Southern California, the result of a tip from FBI television spots that began airing this week,? reported Shelley Murphy in the ?Boston Globe? on June 23, 2011. In part, ?His capture ended a 16-year manhunt that spanned the globe. Richard DesLauriers, special agent in charge of the FBI?s Boston office, and Steven Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI?s Los Angeles office, released a statement this morning confirming that FBI agents had arrested the fugitive, who was on the bureau?s Ten Most Wanted list, and his companion, Catherine Greig, in California. Neither resisted arrest. Cash and guns found hidden in the apartment were seized, police confirmed. ?Recent publicity produced a tip that led agents to a residence in Santa Monica, California, where they located Bulger and Greig Wednesday evening,? the statement said...?Bulger fled just before his federal racketeering indictment in January 1995. It was later revealed in federal court in Boston that he was a longtime FBI informant who had been warned by his corrupt handler, former FBI agent John J. Connolly Jr., that he was about to be arrested. Betrayed by the revelation that Bulger was an informant, several of his former associates began cooperating against him, leading to the discovery of secret graves of his victims in the Boston area and additional charges that Bulger murdered 19 people ... On Monday [June 20th], the FBI announced that after years of focusing on Bulger, it was launching a new initiative aimed at daytime TV viewers. It began airing a 30-second public service announcement in 14 cities across the United States urging people to be on the lookout for Greig, a dental hygienist who was devoted to her appearance, had plastic surgery in the past, and frequently had her hair cut and teeth cleaned. The spots aired during daytime shows, including, ?Ellen,? ?The View,? and ?Live with Regis & Kelly.??Letter of Provenance, in part, from the C.E.O. of Boston Commodities International: ?We are recyclers of electronic waste for precious metals value and we broker bullion. We have several contacts with private and government agencies for electronic disposal. At the beginning of February 2012 we received a load of scrap metal from a company we collaborate with and were advised that the product was old equipment from the FBI. Once we received the product at our dock we noticed that it was four pallets of old surveillance and wire tapping equipment. When we started to get into the pallets we noticed two modified phone switches that had written in black magic marker ?Bulger phone switch?. Me and my partner looked at each other and commented that this was used in the surveillance and building of the case against Whitey Bulger...??Boston Globe? reporters Shelley Murphy and Maria Cramer wrote in ?Whitey in Exile,? on October 9, 2011, that ?the FBI never stopped looking for Bulger. But after the FBI publicly admitted in 1997 that Bulger had been its longtime informant ?" confirming what the ?Globe? had reported nine years earlier ?" many questioned whether the agency really wanted to catch him. That year, the FBI brought in other law enforcement agencies, creating a task force that once averaged about a dozen agents, officers, and analysts assigned full time to tracking Bulger ... Though the FBI has declined to say how much the manhunt cost, [Charles ?Chip?] Fleming, the retired Boston police detective who served on the task force until 2003, said it was easily the most expensive in FBI history...?On June 30, 2011, a federal judge granted a request by prosecutors to dismiss racketeering charges brought against Whitey Bulger in 1995, saying it was ?very much in the public interest?? that the 81-year-old stand trial in a later case charging him with 19 murders. The Associated Press reported on Monday, February 13, 2012, in part, ?The trial for reputed gangster James ?Whitey? Bulger will be November 5 ... Earlier in the day, lawyers for Bulger told a judge they need at least another year to go through ?a tsunami?s worth? of evidence provided by prosecutors, including more than half a million documents and nearly 1,000 tapes.?On June 12, 2013, Bulger went on trial for 32 counts of racketeering, money laundering, extortion, and weapons charges; including his complicity in 19 murders.On August 12, 2013, he was found guilty on 31 counts, including both racketeering charges, and was found to have been involved in 11 murders."
