Which A-lister should Jason Sudeikis date next? In , Bulger was approached in Triple O's by Louis Litif , a Lebanese-American neighborhood bookmaker.

Weeks, a bouncer at the bar, said, "He wasn't a big guy, maybe five seven and pounds. Of Arab descent, he had a mustache like Saddam Hussein.

That night, as always, he was talking in his obnoxious loud voice. Even when there were people in the bar, you always knew Louie was there.

Litif had been stealing money from his partners in the bookmaking operation and using the money to traffic cocaine , and had not only refused to pay Bulger a cut of his drug profits but committed two murders without Bulger's permission.

Bulger refused to sanction this, but Litif vowed to proceed. Bulger replied, "You've stepped over the line. You're no longer just a bookmaker. Bulger coldly responded, "We're not friends anymore, Louie.

At the time, Weeks was about to get married and, shortly before the wedding, informed Bulger that he was having difficulty finding a seat for Litif at the reception.

And now he wanted to kill a friend of Jimmy. There was no way that would be allowed. Shortly after that, a week or so before my wedding, Louie was found stuffed into a garbage bag in the trunk of his car, which had been dumped in the South End.

He had been stabbed with an ice pick and shot. Strangley enough, Jimmy, told me, 'Louie's last words to me were a lie.

It was hard to figure out why Louie lied to Jimmy that night. If he'd told Jimmy that someone had driven him, he might have gotten a pass.

But it wouldn't have lasted long, since Jimmy had no intention of letting Louie run wild. In , a South Boston cocaine dealer named Edward Brian Halloran, known on the streets as "Balloonhead", approached the FBI and stated that he had witnessed Bulger and Flemmi murdering Litif.

Connolly kept Bulger and Flemmi closely briefed on what Halloran was saying, specifically his knowledge of their participation, along with their youngest associate James "Gentleman Jim" Mulvey, in the murder of businessman Roger Wheeler.

After arriving at the scene, Weeks staked out the Anthony's Pier 4 restaurant, where Halloran was dining. Michael Donahue, a friend of Halloran's from Dorchester , incidentally ran into him at the restaurant.

In a decision that would prove costly to him, Donahue offered Halloran a ride home. As Donahue and Halloran drove out of the parking lot, Weeks signaled Bulger by stating, "The balloon is in the air" over a walkie-talkie.

Bulger drove up with another man armed with a silenced MAC ; Bulger himself carried a. Bulger and the other gunman, both disguised, opened fire and sprayed Halloran and Donahue's car with bullets.

Donahue was shot in the head and killed instantly. Halloran lived long enough to identify his attacker as James Flynn, a Winter Hill associate, who was later tried and acquitted.

Flynn remained the prime suspect until , when Weeks agreed to cooperate with investigators and identified Bulger as one of the shooters.

Flemmi has identified the second shooter as Mulvey, who has denied the allegation and has yet to be charged. Donahue was survived by his wife and three sons.

His family, and Halloran's, eventually filed a civil lawsuit against the U. Both families were awarded several million dollars in damages.

However, the verdict was overturned on appeal due to the late filing of the claims. Throughout the s, Bulger, Flemmi, and Weeks operated rackets throughout eastern Massachusetts including loansharking, bookmaking, truck hijacking, arms trafficking , and extortion.

State and federal agencies were repeatedly stymied in their attempts to build cases against Bulger and his inner circle.

This was caused by several factors. Among them was the trio's fear of wiretaps and policy of never discussing their business over the telephone or in vehicles.

Other reasons included South Boston's code of silence and corruption within the FBI, the Boston Police Department , and the Massachusetts State Police.

Although Connolly was Bulger's most infamous source inside law enforcement, Weeks has stated that Massachusetts State Police Lt. Richard J. Schneiderhan , the crew's only source inside that agency, was valued more highly.

During the mids, Bulger began to summon drug dealers from in and around Boston to his headquarters. Flanked by Weeks and Flemmi, Bulger would inform each dealer that he had been offered a substantial sum in return for that dealer's assassination.

He would then demand a large cash payment as the price of not killing them. Eventually, however, the massive profits of drugs proved irresistible.

Most of South Boston's cocaine and marijuana trafficking was under the control of a crew led by mobster John Shea. According to Weeks, Bulger briefly considered killing Shea, but eventually decided to extort a weekly cut of his profits.

Weeks also said that Bulger enforced strict rules over the dealers who operated on his territory, [31] : strictly forbidding the use of PCP and selling drugs to children, [31] : adding that those dealers who refused to play by his rules were violently driven out of his turf.

In , Shea and his associates were arrested at the end of an investigation by the DEA , the Boston Police, and the Massachusetts State Police.

He quietly served a long prison sentence and refused to admit to having paid protection money to Bulger, Flemmi and Weeks.

He repeatedly got in fights with other inmates who accused Bulger of being "a rat. It would not be until the cooperation of Weeks that Bulger, by then a fugitive, was conclusively linked to the drug trade by investigators.

According to an interview conducted with Globe reporters Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy, Weeks "estimated that Whitey made about thirty million dollars During the most violent period of The Troubles , sympathy for Irish nationalism and the Provisional Irish Republican Army IRA was very common in South Boston, as were efforts to raise money and smuggle weapons for the IRA's terrorist campaign against the British presence in Northern Ireland.

From the start of his involvement with the FBI, Bulger "insisted Bulger also personally donated some of his own weapons.

Before the use of Valhalla , he oversaw a shipment of guns and C-4 in a van at least once. Bulger was annoyed when he learned that the IRA members he supplied had burned the van that contained the weapons.

On September 13, , Bulger, Weeks and Nee supervised the loading of Valhalla. The final cache included "91 rifles, 8 submachine guns, 13 shotguns, 51 handguns, 11 bullet-proof vests, 70, rounds of ammunition, plus an array of hand grenades and rocket heads.

During the return voyage, the Irish Navy stopped Marita Ann and seized the hidden arsenal, arresting IRA members Martin Ferris , Mike Browne and John Crawley.

The operation had been compromised by IRA member Sean O'Callaghan , who was an informant for the Irish National Police. When Valhalla crew member John McIntyre was arrested "for trying to visit his estranged wife", he confessed his role in the weapons smuggling to the Boston Police.

McIntyre implicated Bulger in the botched smuggling to FBI agent Roderick Kennedy, but Kennedy "insisted that [Bulger's handler] Connolly overheard him According to Weeks, when Bulger met with McIntyre in a South Boston house, he hoped to avoid murdering the informant and offered to send him to South America with money and the understanding that he was never to contact his family or friends again.

After interrogating McIntyre over several hours, however, Bulger decided that he did not have the discipline to cut ties with everyone. He then killed McIntyre and went upstairs to take a nap while Weeks and Flemmi removed the corpse's teeth with a pair of pliers and buried it in the basement.

In the summer of , Bulger and Weeks, along with associates Patrick and Michael Linskey, came into possession of a winning Massachusetts Lottery ticket which had been bought at a store he owned.

Bulger was widely thought to have obtained his share of the jackpot illegitimately. In April , a joint task force of the DEA, the Boston Police, and the Massachusetts State Police launched a probe of Bulger's illegal gambling operations.

The FBI, by this time considered compromised, was not informed. After a number of bookmakers agreed to testify to having paid protection money to Bulger, a federal case was built against him under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act RICO.

In and , before the pinches came down, Jimmy and Stevie were traveling on the French and Italian Riviera. The two of them traveled all over Europe, sometimes separating for a while.

Sometimes they took girls, sometimes just the two of them went. They would rent cars and travel all through Europe. It was more preparation than anything, getting ready for another life.

They didn't ask me to go, not that I would have wanted to. Jimmy had prepared for the run for years. He had established a whole other person, Thomas Baxter, with a complete ID and credit cards in that name.

He had even joined associations in Baxter's name, building an entire portfolio for the guy. He had always said you had to be ready to take off on short notice.

And he was. Bulger had also set up safe deposit boxes containing cash, jewelry and passports in locations across North America and Europe, including Florida , Oklahoma , Montreal , Dublin , London , Birmingham and Venice.

In December , he was informed by Connolly that sealed indictments had come from the Department of Justice and that the FBI was set to make arrests during the Christmas season.

In response, Bulger fled Boston on December 23, , accompanied by his common-law wife Theresa Stanley. After fleeing Boston, Bulger and Stanley spent four days over Christmas in Selden , New York , before spending New Year's Day in a hotel in New Orleans 's French Quarter.

On January 5, , Bulger prepared to return to Boston, believing that it had been a false alarm. That night, however, Flemmi was arrested outside a Boston restaurant by the DEA.

Boston police detective Michael Flemmi, Stephen's brother, informed Weeks of the arrest. Weeks immediately passed the information on to Bulger, who altered his plans.

Bulger and Stanley spent the next three weeks traveling to New York City , Los Angeles and San Francisco before Stanley decided that she wanted to return to her children.

They traveled to Clearwater, Florida , where Bulger retrieved his "Tom Baxter" identification from a safety deposit box.

He then drove to Boston and dropped off Stanley in a parking lot. Bulger met with Weeks at Malibu Beach in Dorchester, where Weeks brought Bulger's girlfriend, Catherine Greig.

Bulger and Greig then went on the run together. In his memoirs, Weeks describes a clandestine meeting with Bulger and Greig in Chicago.

Bulger reminisced fondly about his time hiding out with a family in Louisiana. He told Weeks, who had replaced him as head of the Winter Hill Gang, "If anything comes down, put it on me.

He told Weeks, "Every day out there is another day I beat them. Every good meal is a meal they can't take away from me. In mid-November , Weeks and Bulger met for the last time at the lion statues at the front of the New York Public Library Main Branch and adjourned for dinner at a nearby restaurant.

At the end of our dinner, he seemed more aware of everything around him. His tone was a little more serious, and there wasn't as much joking as usual.

He repeated the phrase he had used before that a rolling stone gathers no moss, which told me that he knew he was going to be on the move again.

I got the feeling that he was resigning himself to the fact that he wasn't coming back. Up until then, I always believed he thought there was a chance he had beat the case.

However, at that point, there was something different going on with him. I didn't fully understand all the aspects of his case. It would be another six months before it became clearer.

Yet at that moment, in that restaurant in New York, I sensed that he had moved to a new place in his mind.

It was over. He'd never return to South Boston. On November 17, , Weeks was arrested by a combined force of the DEA and the Massachusetts State Police.

Although by this time he was aware of Bulger's FBI deal, he was determined to remain faithful to the neighborhood code of silence. However, while awaiting trial in Rhode Island's Wyatt federal prison , Weeks was approached by a fellow inmate, a " made man " in the Patriarca family, who told him, "Kid, what are you doing?

Are you going to take it up the ass for these guys? Remember, you can't rat on a rat. Those guys have been giving up everyone for thirty years.

In the aftermath, Weeks decided to cut a deal with federal prosecutors and revealed where almost every penny and body was buried. Writing in , Weeks recalled: [31] : I had known all along, however, that it would not be easy for anyone to capture Jimmy.

If he saw them coming, he would take them with him. He wouldn't hesitate. Even before he went on the run, he would always say, "Let's all go to hell together.

I also knew that Jimmy wouldn't go to trial. He would rather plead out to a life sentence than put his family through the embarrassment of a trial.

If he had a gun on him, he would go out in a blaze of glory rather than spend the rest of his life in jail. But I don't think they'll ever catch him.

The first confirmed sighting of Bulger before his capture was in London in At one point, FBI agents were sent to Uruguay to investigate a lead.

Other agents were sent to stake out the 60th anniversary celebrations of the Battle of Normandy , as Bulger was reportedly an enthusiastic fan of military history.

Later reports of a sighting in Italy in April proved false. Two people on video footage shot in Taormina , Sicily , formerly thought to be Bulger and Greig walking in the streets of the city center, were later identified as a tourist couple from Germany.

In , the FBI turned its focus to Victoria , British Columbia , on Vancouver Island. After sixteen years at large and twelve years on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, Bulger was arrested in Santa Monica, California , on June 22, He was 81 years old at the time of the arrest.

Bulger was captured as a result of the work of the Bulger Fugitive Task Force, which consisted of FBI agents and a Deputy U. According to retired FBI agent Scott Bakken, "Here you have somebody who is far more sophisticated than some year-old who killed someone in a drive-by.
