Infamous mobster Whitey Bulger killed in West Virginia prison

The Associated Press reported that the Federal Bureau of Prisons online inmate log on Tuesday listed Bulger as an inmate at USP Hazelton.

Bulger arrived at the penitentiary on Monday after being processed at an Oklahoma City transfer site.

The Bureau of Prisons declined to comment last week on why Bulger - who was serving a life sentence - was being moved. One tipster insisted spying Bulger inside a Boston movie theater in 2006, watching the Martin Scorsese movie "The Departed" - where Jack Nicholson played a mob boss based on the fugitive son of South Boston.

Prison officials have not released any additional details, according to Fox News, but they acknowledged that notorious fugitive who eluded the authorities for 16 years, had died.

Bulger had told his attorney J.W. Carney that he regretted never marrying Greig, who abandoned her old life to join the FBI-wanted mobster in hiding.

Patricia Donahue's husband, Michael, was killed in 1982 when he offered a ride home to a man allegedly targeted for death by Bulger because he was talking to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
