James ’Whitey’ Bulger found guilty of 11 murders including IRA smuggler John McIntyre
After 16-years on the run ruthless Boston gangster found guilty of racketeering
In September the Irish authorities seized 7.5 tons of automatic rifles, sub machine guns and hand grenades worth $1 million from a ship. This was the largest seizure of IRA-bound weapons to date.
Days later McIntyre was arrested on a DUI charge, in Quincy. Speaking to an FBI agent he mentioned the drug runs during an interview. Unfortunately the agent was was friendly with Bulger’s FBI confidant John Connolly.
DeFago said that when they hadn’t heard from McIntyre they went out to look for him. The Gloucester Times reports DeFago saying, “He had instructions to call us ... every day and when he didn’t call we got suspicious and started to go out and look for him.”
McIntyre’s body was not found until 2000. An associate of Bulger, Kevin Weeks, testified that Bulger tortured him and shot him in the head at an east Boston house. He was buried in the basement.
Bulger will likely spend the rest of his natural life in prison having been found guilty.
The two-month trial has seen the Winter Hill gang boss, who notoriously went on the run for over 16 years, portrayed as a cold-blooded killer who killed innocent people who got in his way.
According to one testimony he was known to take a nap while his associates cleaned up after a murder.
